State Leaders Punish Missouri Lawmaker Who Threatened President Trump

"I made a mistake", Chappelle-Nadal said at Wellspring Church in Ferguson. "I Will. I hope Trump is assassinated!" in response to a comment from another person who posted about his cousin being on the President's secret service detail and his fear that he will probably receive a visit from the secret service.

Chappelle-Nadal told The Associated Press she won't resign.

But top Missouri lawmakers including the state's governor are calling for her step down. "I want to apologize to you and your family", said Chappelle-Nadal, addressing Trump by name.

Also on Tuesday, Walsh, in a statement, said Chappelle-Nadal will no longer serve on committees if she hangs on to her post. The pathetic excuse that she was "angry" when she made the remark because of the ill-advised way that Trump handled the Charlottesville white supremacist terror attack is, quite frankly, a cop-out.

In her mind Chappelle-Nadal was simply reflecting her the frustration felt by herself and those she represents over recent issues like Charlottesville. Chappelle-Nadal has been removed from her committee assignments. On Sunday she declined to take questions from reporters but indicated her position had not changed. "And it doesn't matter what the last name of the president is, whether it be Trump, Obama, Clinton, Bush".

The political situation in Tamil Nadu has been volatile ever since J Jayalalithaa's death in December past year . Sasikala is in a Bengaluru jail after being convicted in a disproportionate assets case.

"I let them know that I had no intentions of hurting anyone or trying to get other people to hurt anyone at all", she said. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, an African-American Democrat. Claire McCaskill, have demanded that she resign. Those calling for her resignation include Democratic leaders in the Legislature, the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party and a Missouri congressman.

Chappelle-Nadal has been defiant when asked if she'll depart before then. Meanwhile, it is not only Trump who has been called to explain about comments that have a relation to the tragic event.

She also apologised to Missouri residents and her statehouse colleagues. "All sides need to agree that there is no room for suggestions of political violence in America - and the Missouri Democratic Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President". That politician would have been forced to resign immediately and it would be on the 24-hour news cycle for days on end.

In a Friday news conference, Parson said he would ask Attorney General Josh Hawley for clarity about the constitution's explusion provision.
