The man who kill the mobster truely believed he was part of the Deep STATE & was a Trump vigilante!! [View all]

The Deep state conspiracy is wide spread-by the likes of RW media, Trump and Hannity etc etc.

I do believe this vile propaganda has affected his mind and should be institutionalized for treatment for as long as it takes to deprogram him.
And we all know--others are affected--but just have not taken action --at this time. But remember PizzaGate!!

He Wasn’t Seeking to Kill a Mob Boss. He Was Trying to Help Trump, His Lawyer Says.

But court documents filed on Friday offered a glimpse into the deeply troubled mind of Mr. Comello, who his defense lawyer says was so deluded by internet conspiracy theories that he was determined to conduct a citizen’s arrest of Mr. Cali and turn the Mafia leader over to the military.

“He ardently believed that Francesco Cali, a boss in the Gambino crime family, was a prominent member of the deep state, and, accordingly, an appropriate target for a citizen’s arrest,” wrote Mr. Comello’s lawyer, Robert C. Gottlieb.

At times, the circumstances of Mr. Cali’s demise have seemed so outlandish that they appeared specially designed for these viral times. But a clearer picture is emerging of how the tale’s incongruous pieces — a mob boss, a drifter from Staten Island and a far-right conspiracy theory — may fit together.

Mr. Cali’s murder was the highest-profile mob killing in decades, an event so significant that in the days between Mr. Cali’s death and Mr. Comello’s arrest, speculation surged that a new war was brewing among New York’s five Mafia families.

The reality, according to his lawyer, appears to be even more bizarre: Mr. Comello had become convinced that Mr. Cali was part of the so-called deep state, a cabal of criminals that conspiracy theorists claim controls the United States government. Mr. Comello also believed he was a chosen vigilante of President Trump.

“Mr. Comello became certain that he was enjoying the protection of President Trump himself, and that he had the president’s full support,” Mr. Gottlieb wrote.

That delusion will be part of a package of evidence that Mr. Gottlieb says he plans to submit to the court that prove Mr. Comello is not guilty by reason of mental defect. Mr. Gottlieb is seeking to have the court place Mr. Comello in psychiatric treatment, rather than prosecute him on murder charges. Mr. Comello is being held in protective custody as he awaits trial.........................
