Hillary Clinton could be tried for treason and face the death penalty over the Uranium One scandal, according to Trump’s former deputy assistant.
Speaking with Fox News anchor Sean Hannity on Thursday, Sebastian Gorka claimed that evidence proving that Clinton took bribes from Russia in exchange for approving the controversial Uranium One deal could ultimately result in her being publicly executed by injection, electrocution, gas, firing squad or hanging.
Washingtontimes.com reports: “The Russians infiltrated our national security to corner the uranium market and they succeeded, and they knew all the crimes that were committed,” Mr. Hannity said during the broadcast.
“If this had happened in the 1950s, there would be people up on treason charges right now. The Rosenbergs, OK? This is equivalent to what the Rosenbergs did and those people got the chair. Think about it. Giving away the nuclear capability to our enemies, that’s what we’re talking about,” Mr. Gorka responded
Married couple Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were convicted of espionage in 1951 for giving nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union and were executed by electric chair two years later.
Mr. Gorka, 47, served as deputy assistant to the president from January until August. Mr. Gorka has insisted he resigned from that role, but the Trump administration has categorized his departure otherwise.
