Good news, folks!
Our Secret Service is continuing to do their jobs in protecting the President of the United States.
Yesterday, Truthfeed reported extensively on Maine Democrat Lawmaker Scott Hamann’s not so subtle death threats against President Trump as well as his disgusting remarks, calling 63 million Trump voters “dumb f*cks.”
Today, the Secret Service confirms they are investigating the matter.
Thank you to everyone who alerted the authorities and helped spread the news.
The U.S. Secret Service said Thursday it is investigating comments about President Donald Trump made by a Democratic state lawmaker from Maine in a video posted this week on Facebook.
Responding to a Fox News inquiry regarding remarks by state Rep. Scott Hamann, a Secret Service spokesman replied, “The Secret Service is aware of the comments in question and are investigating the matter.
“Allegations of any threat, inappropriate interest or unusual behavior directed towards a Secret Service protectee receives the highest priority of all our investigations.”
No further details about the investigation were available, the spokesman said.
“For security reasons, we cannot discuss specifically nor in general terms the means and method of how we perform our protective responsibilities,” the spokesman said in a statement.
On Wednesday, after Maine Republicans posted Hamann’s rant on their Twitter page, Hamann said he regretted what he described as his“aggressively sarcastic and inappropriate” comments about Trump.
Hamann had referred to Trump as a “half-term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet.” Some critics interpreted the comments as a threat of violence against the president.
Following the backlash, the lawmaker said he shouldn’t have used such language and claimed he was mainly trying to make a point about the state of political discourse in the U.S.
In the same post, Hamann also described Trump as a “joke” and a “rapist,” and used a crude anatomical term.
One Facebook user, who did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment, replied incredulously to the implicit threat.
“Scott Hamann you plan to kill the President?” the user wrote.
Hamann also took a swipe at the president’s supporters, saying, “I just can’t deal with you ignorant people anymore.”
