The Huffington Post scrambled to pull a piece aboout executing President Donald Trump, written by contributor Jason Fuller, from its website, after a shooting attack at an Alexandria, Virginia, ball field left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise in serious condition, and an aide to another Republican lawmaker, along with two Capitol Hill police, wounded by gun fire.
The shooting seemed a target on Republicans, given the anti-Trump postings of the now-dead shooter, James Hodgkinson.
The HuffPo piece, titled “Impeachment Is No Longer Enough: Donald Trump Must Face Justice,” was published June 11.
And it read, in part, like this:
“Trump’s impeachment and removal from office are no longer enough,” the HuffPo contributor wrote. “Draining the swamp means not only ejecting Trump from the presidency, but also bringing himself and everyone assisting in his agenda up on charges of treason. They must be convicted (there is little room to doubt their guilt). And then — upon receiving guilty verdicts — they must all be executed under the law. Anything less than capital punishment — or at least life imprisonment without parole in a maximum security detention facility — would send yet another message to the world that America has lost its moral compass.”
Fuller also called for similar actions against Republican leadership.
“Nothing would do more than to convict them of the highest offense defined by our Constitution, and then to deliver the ultimate punishment. Donald Trump deserves nothing less,” the author wrote. “Mitch McConnell, Steve Bannon, and Paul Ryan should also share Donald Trump’s fate, for they have done more than practically anyone to protect him and to throw our country under the proverbial bus. In order to survive, we as a nation must deliver the ultimate punishment under the law to all involved in its current destruction.”
The HuffPo pulled the piece in the aftermath of the Alexandria shooting. But The Daily Caller found it and ran it on its own website.
Fuller, meanwhile, showed litte remorse.
He wrote, on Medium:
“What appears to have garnered the most vitriol was my opinion that President Trump and his co-conspirators within the government should be executed for treason if found guilty in a court of law. …
“‘In other words: I want President Trump to be fully investigated, face the charges of treason, and then executed under the law should a guilty verdict be attained. […] I 100 percent stand behind every word that I wrote and make no attempts to apologize or to appease the Trump supporters who are unable to comprehend those words.’
