New York Democrats accused Trump supporters who breached the U.S. Capitol last year of committing “treason” and called for their execution.
The disturbing remarks came during a January 6 vigil in upstate New York held by far-left Saratoga, Warren, Washington Progressive Action group on Thursday, with cochair Larry Fine and two Democrats running against Rep. Elise Stefanik (R) attending.
“We were attacked. There was a terrorist attack on our country, attempting to overthrow our government, our government. It was a coup,” Fine said. “They came with weapons and lots of people and arms. Because this attack is by our own citizens, it’s called treason, treason.”
“A consequence of treason is death. According to the Constitution, a consequence of treason is death,” Fine added, with a member of the audience shouting “Amen!” in response.
