House Democrat Stacey Plaskett says Trump 'needs to be shot'–then corrects herself to 'stopped'

Democrat delegate for the US Virgin Islands said Trump needs "to be shot," before correcting herself and saying "stopped."

On Sunday, Democrat delegat to the US Virgin Islands Stacey Plaskett said former President Donald Trump needs “to be shot,” before correcting herself and saying “stopped.” 

“Having Trump not only have had the codes," she began to MSNBC discussing the former president’s indictment, " but now having the classified information for Americans and being able to put that out and share it in his resort with anyone and everyone who comes through should be terrifying to all Americans. And he needs to be shot — stopped.”

“And that’s the thing that I am concerned about with many of my colleagues in the GOP," she continued, undaunted. "That they believe that there is a two-tiered system, but the two-tiered system is not to punish them more. It’s to – they want it to allow them to get away with more than everyday Americans. Causing Americans to distrust the FBI, the Department of Justice — it’s all a mechanism, and all, you know, part of their propaganda.”

Plaskett, who serves as ranking member of the Select Subcommittee on Weaponization of the Federal Government, came under fire in March following her questioning of journalist Matt Taibbi over the Twitter Files.

The subcommittee was investigating the allegations made in the Twitter Files about the suppression of free speech on the platform and the government’s role in the suppression.

Plaskett questioned Taibbi and Michael Schellenberger, who covered the Twitter Files, and referred to them as “so-called journalists” despite their decades of experience and accolades. She then attempted to pressure Taibbi to give up his sources for the Twitter Files.

She followed that up by sending the journalist a letter accusing him of perjury in his testimony before the subcommittee threatening jail time.

In March, during a House Judiciary Committee hearing, Plaskett objected when Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) attempted to enter a letter into the record from Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry addressing the issue of “political violence."

Plaskett insisted that the letter could not be entered because Landry was not present at the hearing.

Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) stated at the time that the letter could be entered, but when Johnson approached Plaskett’s chair and attempted to hand her the letter, the congresswoman walked back to Johnson and threw the document at him.
