And now, a "veteran's outreach" adviser to Donald Trump and delegate to the GOP convention, Al Baldasaro, has publicly called for Hillary Clinton to be "shot for treason." Here's the audio, via Andrew Kaczynski at Buzzfeed:

The Daily Beast's Tim Mak contacted Baldasaro, and he proceeded to double down:

"Anyone that commits treason should be shot," Al Baldasaro, an adviser to the Trump campaign for veterans issues, he told The Daily Beast. "I believe Hillary Clinton committed treason. She put people in danger. When people take confidential material off a server, you're sharing information with the enemy. That's treason."

Secret Service "is aware of" and "will conduct appropriate investigation" of Trump surrogate's "shot for treason" quote, spox tells me.
