Alex Jones: Hillary should be charged with treason

Alex Jones, conservative radio host and founder of media outlet InfoWars, said Hillary Clinton is a "traitor" and called for her to be given a fair trial before she "faces a firing squad."

While the "lock her up" chant has become a popular refrain the convention, the controversial conspiracy theorist told AOL News he's been advocating "Hillary for prison" for years. "She's done stuff that other people have gotten indicted for or went to jail," Jones said.

Responding to backlash after Donald Trump's veteran affairs adviser Al Baldasaro said that Clinton should be "shot for treason," Jones said "I think Hillary should be charged for treason."

While Jones said "I'm not calling for violence against Hillary," when asked if he would denounce Baldasaro's controversial statement the radio host refused, saying, "Hillary Clinton is strangling this country. Hillary Clinton wants to mount America's head on the wall."

"She works for the Communist Chinese. She should have the sentence carried out on her once she's convicted," Jones said referring to Baldasaro's firing squad comment.

Secret Service are reportedly now investigating Baldasaro, a New Hampshire representative, for his statements against the presumptive Democratic nominee.

The RNC has been an eventful week so far for the InfoWars founder. Earlier in the week Jones and anti-Trump protesters got into a scuffle after one protester grabbed Jones and shouted "Nazi scum."

Comedian Eric Andre of "The Eric Andre Show" also got into it with Jones during a "America First" rally. Andre reportedly jumped on stage with Jones and said "I want you to have sex with my wife."
