Greitens calls on Senate to remove Chappelle-Nadal

But Chappelle-Nadal is remaining defiant in the face of overwhelming criticism. "And we need, as the State of Missouri, to set an example".

Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal commented on her personal Facebook page, "I hope Trump is assassinate".

The Secret Service is reportedly investigating her post.

She may have no choice in the matter as the lieutenant governor of Missouri is taking steps to have her removed from office.

"Senator Chappelle-Nadal said she hopes the President is killed".

The Democratic senator deleted the post, which prompted an investigation by the Secret Service.

Ms Chappelle-Nadal, who gained prominence for criticising the Ferguson police shooting of Michael Brown in 2014, has since deleted the comment and apologised. "I thought what happened was a terrible moment for our country, but there are two sides to every story", he said, triggering a national storm.

The Missouri state senator was referring to violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.

Parson, who's position also makes him president of the Missouri Senate, is calling for the expulsion Nadal under Article 3 of the Missouri Constitution. In January, Chapelle-Nadal accused Peters of inappropriately grabbing her in a "forceful embrace" during a floor debate. The governor's post from Facebook is seen below.

"Maria Chappelle-Nadal has a long and troubled history of making vulgar, obscene and completely irresponsible statements".

"I refuse to resign for exercising my First Amendment rights, even though what I said was wrong", she said.

Chappelle-Nadal told the Post-Dispatch she did not mean what she wrote and that she was reacting out of frustration.

"They are creating cover for the president instead of dealing with the real issues at hand", Chappelle-Nadal said. "I will. I hope Trump is assassinated". These are two very different words meaning two very different things.

"So that's the Secret Service's job to find out if there was a federal violation committed".

"I condemn it", McCaskill told the Post-Dispatch.

"I will not sit idly by and let this kind of behavior transpire in our state, especially from members of our government".

In addition to partywide condemnation of Chappelle-Nadal's post, state Rep. Joshua Peters, D-St.
