House Dem Calls For Trump To Be ‘Eliminated’ — After Condemning ‘Dangerous’ Rhetoric

via ABC 7 Chicago

Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY), a former counsel in Trump’s first impeachment, called for Trump to be “eliminated” from public office, prompting criticism.

He referred to Trump’s rhetoric as “dangerous” and unfit for public office, leading to accusations of a threat.

“His rhetoric is really getting dangerous,” Goldman said.

“It is just unquestionable at this point that that man [Trump] cannot see public office again,” he added.

“He is not only unfit. He is destructive to our democracy. And he has to be eliminated.”

The comments drew backlash from Trump allies, with some calling for an investigation by the Secret Service.

GOP operative Roger Stone said Goldman’s statements “are dangerous, inflammatory, and most probably illegal. They always accuse us of exactly what they are doing.”

Tom Fitton, president of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch said, “In the least, Goldman should be investigated by the Secret Service for this threat.”

Collin Rugg, co-owner of Trending Politics, stated, “By using his own ‘logic,’ Goldman should never see public office again.”

Goldman later apologized for his choice of words, expressing that while Trump must be defeated, he does not condone political violence.

“Yesterday on TV, I mistakenly used the wrong word to express the importance for America that Donald Trump doesn’t become President again,” Goldman said.

“While he must be defeated, I certainly wish no harm to him and do not condone political violence. I apologize for the poor choice of words.”

Meanwhile, Trump faces legal battles and gag orders as he pursues a 2024 presidential campaign, denying any wrongdoing and alleging political motivation behind the prosecutions.
