N.H. lawmaker who said Hillary Clinton should be ‘shot for treason’ under consideration for Deputy Secretary of Veterans Administration
State Rep. Al Baldasaro says he received a call from the Trump transition team last week informing him that he is under consideration for the position of Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs, the number two spot in the sprawling department that operates the nation’s largest health care system and has a total annual budget of over $180 billion.
The six-term lawmaker and retired Marine sergeant told talk show host Rich Girard that if he is nominated for the position and confirmed by the Senate, he will resign from the New Hampshire House and will commute between Washington and his home in Londonderry.
Baldasaro, who served as co-chair of the New Hampshire Veterans for Trump Coalition and appeared regularly at Trump rallies, would be a controversial choice. ‘Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason’
During last year’s Republican National Convention, Baldasaro made national headlines when he called Hillary Clinton “a piece of garbage” who should be executed.
