Danielle Stella, a Republican candidate running to challenge Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, had her Twitter account permanently suspended for tweeting, "If it is proven @IlhanMN passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged."
She later tweeted a link to a blog post that featured a drawing of a stick figure being hanged.
Stella took to Facebook after the Twitter ban and doubled down, writing,
There are MANY hypocrites rage posting here. Breathe, think this through, logically.
To clarify, I said, "If it is proven ____ passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged". Treason is the only thing mentioned in the constitution for the death penalty, punishable by hanging or firing squad. I believe all involved should be thoroughly investigated. I did not threaten anyone. If you are calling it a threat- you believe that individual is guilty, and therefore it is not a threat, it's treason. You and the fake news #MSM are lying by calling it Iynch ing or terroristic threats.
🔦 Stella was referring to a Washington Examiner report claiming that Ilhan Omar was accused of being a "Qatari asset" and conduit to Iran.
