MSNBC’s Beschloss, Former CIA director Hayden ‘suggest’ Trump be executed for having nuclear documents

Conservative commentator Jerry Dunleavy accused Beschloss of “suggesting that Trump should be executed,” considering it was posted just after the Washington Post piece speculating that the FBI had raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate to find missing nuclear documents.

The Washington Post exclusive from Thursday afternoon attempted to offer more details as to what the FBI was searching for at Mar-a-Lago on Monday, as Attorney General Merrick Garland remained tight-lipped about it in his address to the nation.

The report cited sources speaking “on the condition of anonymity,” claiming, “Classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items FBI agents sought in a search of former president Donald Trump’s Florida residence on Monday, according to people familiar with the investigation.”

FBI RAID ON TRUMP LATEST PROOF OF DEMOCRAT WAR ON RULE OF LAW

The claim sent shock waves through social media and became a top Twitter trend.

Several hours after the claim in the exclusive report, Beschloss provided some historical context as to what happens to those who illegally retain and pass off nuclear information to non-U.S. entities. Tweeting out an image of Soviet spies Julius and Ethel Rosenburg, he wrote, “Rosenbergs were convicted for giving U.S. nuclear secrets to Moscow, and were executed June 1953.”

The tweet caught the attention of former director of both the National Security Agency and the CIA, Michael Hayden. Hayden, who is also a retired four-star Air Force general and whose tenure in the intelligence agencies happened under former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, commented on Beschloss’s post.

“Sounds about right,” the ex-CIA head tweeted. 

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland admitted Thursday that he personally approved the FBI raid on Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.
