Danielle Stella, a Republican who’s trying to unseat Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, has been banned from Twitter. Stella’s last tweet, while admittedly horrible, is pretty damn close to the kind of tweets that President Donald Trump sends on a daily basis.
“If it is proven @IlhanMN passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged,” Stella tweeted from her account @2020MNCongress last week.
Stella was referring to a conspiracy theory popular on far-right websites that Rep. Omar has passed sensitive national security information to Iran through Qatar. The conspiracy theory appears to have been started by far-right activist Ryan Fournier on Twitter. Omar denied the allegations of being a Qatari asset to the Jerusalem Post.
