Secret Service Investigating Trump Assassination Comment

State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-University City) will hold a press conference at 2 p.m. on Sunday, August 20 at Wellspring Church in Ferguson.

But the Democrat, who has faced a deafening chorus of critics insisting she should resign, did not indicate any willingness to do so. They have also mentioned that if she does not resign of her own volition, there may be other ways to force a step-down and these may be explored.

When she posted the original comment on Facebook, Chappelle-Nadal said she made the comment out of "trauma and despair".

The post, which was later deleted, was written in response to another comment which called for the president to be impeached.

Even though she removed the post - that she said she regretted - the Leftist politician initially made no apologies for her anger at the president over comments he made in the wake of the Charlottesville, Virginia, violence. Parson is the presiding officer of the Senate, though he can only vote to break ties and cannot sponsor legislation or make motions for votes.

"She is no longer fit to serve our state", he said at a Capitol press conference Friday. "I also apologize to all of the people in Missouri". But that has not occurred in recent decades, and it is unclear exactly how it would happen.

Greitens is among the Republicans and Democrats in Missouri calling for Chappelle-Nadal to step down.

The US Secret Service has questioned Chappelle-Nadal as part of its investigation into her remarks.

Chappelle-Nadal said last week she has no plans to resign. She said she now believes she is being "targeted" by other officeholders, including the governor, because of political expediency or grudges. In a speech laced with religious symbolism and references to being a "child of God", Chappelle-Nadal avoided making any mention of the actual content of the Facebook post that sparked the recent controversy. The black 18-year-old resident was unarmed when he physically struggled with a white officer who shot him. Her supporters have defended her record as a legislator in a district that encompasses Ferguson, praising her response to the unrest there after Michael Brown was killed by a police officer.
