The Secret Service just announced that they are looking into Maine State Congressman Scott Hamann who recently wrote on Facebook that is he gets “within 10 feet” from President Donald Trump, he would be a “half1term President” hinting towards an assassination.
A spokesman for the Secret Service stated: “The Secret Service is aware of the comments in question and are investigating the matter” adding “Allegations of any threat, inappropriate interest or unusual behavior directed towards a Secret Service protectee receives the highest priority of all our investigations.”
For now, the details about the investigation remain undisclosed for security reasons, said the spokesman, anyhow, as the investigation develops further information will be released to the public.
Even though the Maine Republican Hamann has said that he regretted what he described as “aggressively sarcastic and inappropriate” comments after gaining Social Media criticism, that does not change the fact that he called the president “half-term president, especially if I ever get within 10 feet.”
The people understand his comments as a threat against the president, and the lawmaker said that his choice of words was only because he wanted to make a point about the political discourse of the state. But it seems how he will choose his words more carefully now that he is under an investigation.
Please share this post on Facebook if you think he got what he asked for.
