(Newser) – A prominent Donald Trump delegate from New Hampshire says Hillary Clinton should be "put in the firing line and shot for treason," over the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans, reports the AP. New Hampshire state Rep. Al Baldasaro, who appears frequently with Trump and serves as an adviser on veterans' issues, made the remarks Tuesday when asked on a Boston radio program if Clinton were responsible for the Benghazi deaths. He said Clinton "is a disgrace for the lies she told those mothers about their children," adding, "Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason."

He also called Clinton a "piece of garbage" for using a private email server while she was secretary of state. Baldasaro is known for making controversial comments in his role as a New Hampshire lawmaker. No word yet from the Tump camp, reports BuzzFeed, which first reported on the comments. (In a speech at the Republican convention, the mother of a Benghazi victim said she blamed Clinton "personally.")
