Former CIA Chief Agrees Trump Could be 'Executed' Over Mar-a-Lago Document Storage

In the wake of the FBI’s aggressive and unprecedented raid on Mar-a-Lago, the American electorate has grown highly agitated.

We were a nation already beginning to show signs of distress and division, the likes of which we haven’t experienced in American since the run-up to the Civil War, and the targeting of the likely 2024 GOP nominee for President by the his predecessor and likely opponent’s administration is simply too inflammatory to ignore.

Worse still, the mainstream media is having a heyday with the revelation, and stoking the anger of the MAGA Movement at every turn.

The latest escalation in rhetoric is simply astounding, with a former CIA director suggesting on MSNBC that Donald Trump could be executed as a result of the raid.

MSNBC contributor and historian Michael Beschloss posted a tweet on Thursday evening recounting historical figures who had been executed for sharing U.S. nuclear secrets with foreign governments, and a former CIA chief shared the post with his own approving tweet.

Conservative commentator Jerry Dunleavy accused Beschloss of “suggesting that Trump should be executed,” considering it was posted just after the Washington Post piece speculating that the FBI had raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate to find missing nuclear documents.

The claim regarding “nuclear” documents was from “anonymous sources”, however, and has been strongly denied by Donald Trump.

The Washington Post exclusive from Thursday afternoon attempted to offer more details as to what the FBI was searching for at Mar-a-Lago on Monday, as Attorney General Merrick Garland remained tight-lipped about it in his address to the nation.

The report cited sources speaking “on the condition of anonymity,” claiming, “Classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items FBI agents sought in a search of former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence on Monday, according to people familiar with the investigation.”

Here is where it gets ugly:

Several hours after the claim in the exclusive report, Beschloss provided some historical context as to what happens to those who illegally retain and pass off nuclear information to non-U.S. entities. Tweeting out an image of Soviet spies Julius and Ethel Rosenburg, he wrote, “Rosenbergs were convicted for giving U.S. nuclear secrets to Moscow, and were executed June 1953.”

The tweet caught the attention of the former director of both the National Security Agency and the CIA, Michael Hayden. Hayden, who is also a retired four-star Air Force general and whose tenure in the intelligence agencies happened under former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, commented on Beschloss’s post.

“Sounds about right,” the ex-CIA head tweeted.

This latest vitriol comes at a time in which political violence is already on the rise in America, and belies a vast irresponsibility among the anti-Trump community.
