Right-wing commentator, conspiracy theorist and Donald Trump–obsessed sycophant Wayne Allyn Root appeared on “The Mark Cox Show” yesterday where he declared that Hillary Clinton should be hung for treason for supposedly having been bribed to hand over 20 percent of America’s uranium stockpiles to Russia.
“There should be a Russian investigation about influence peddling,” he said. “It’s not Donald Trump’s people, it’s Hillary’s people who were involved in influence peddling to Russia.”
Root, who repeatedly campaigned alongside Trump during his presidential bid and has accused Clinton of committing “a hanging” offense in the past, told Cox that Clinton should be facing either life imprisonment or the death penalty:
If it’s a crime to want to meet with the ambassador to Russia, what would you call it if you take $145 million from top Russian executives and then turn around as secretary of state and have the State Department decide to give away one-fifth of all the uranium stock of the United States to those same executives who gave your Clinton Foundation $145 million? I would say that’s treason. I would say that’s a hanging offense. I would say you go to jail for the rest of your life or you get the death penalty for making a decision like that and selling out the American people while secretary of state.
