The U.S. Secret Service, which protects the president, said it is "looking into the comments" made by Chappelle-Nadal, as it does with all threats made against the president.

"No, I don't want to see anyone assassinated, but he should not be president, he should be impeached", Chapelle-Nadal told KMOV.

If her fellow Democrats can't convince her to resign, then her colleagues in the Missouri legislature need to act to expel her. I'm not resigning. Legislators cheat on their wives or smoke marijuana and are not asked to resign. "Maria Chappelle-Nadal's frightful comments".
