Democrats Admit Trump Indictment Is Purely Political By Fundraising Off It

Democrats’ willingness to fundraise off Trump’s recent felony indictment further proves their desire for political vengeance has no bounds.


Within 48 hours of the publicization of the Manhattan grand jury’s decision to hit the former president with a felony indictment, Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign raked in more than $5 million in donations — 25 percent of which were from new donors.

Corporate media complained about Trump’s “cash grab” and claimed it was a desperate attempt to “make criminal allegations pay.” Senate, House, and state Democrats who spent years trying to build cases against Trump, however, also raised money off the news without scrutiny.

Instead, they were merely warned by corporate media mouthpieces that their actions could be viewed as inappropriately “opportunistic.”

“Now is also not the time for Democratic candidates to celebrate, to brag, to predict the outcome of the legal cases,” Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki warned during her MSNBC show on Sunday. “If you can, I’d actually just put your head down and stay out of it for now.”

Why would a Biden administration ally want Democrats to back off their years-long “get Trump” campaign now? Because it doesn’t make sense for non-presidential Democrat candidates to fundraise off the indictment unless it is, as Trump repeatedly explained in his fundraising flyers and Facebook advertisements, political persecution.

Here are the Democrats who decided the potential downfall of their political enemy could earn them a few extra bucks.

Adam Schiff

Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, who got himself barred from the House Intelligence Committee he once chaired for spending years weaponizing the committee to try and take down Trump, used the former president’s indictment to ask for money for his recently launched Senate campaign.

“It is a somber moment, and unprecedented for a former president to be indicted, but his alleged offenses are also unprecedented,” the Schiff campaign wrote. “If the rule of law is to be applied equally — and it must — it must apply to the powerful as it applies to everyone else. To do so otherwise is not a democracy.”

Despite the fact that Democrats, for years, have operated under the belief that their party members and their partisan allies are above the law, Schiff echoed the left’s moot talking point that “those with wealth and power must be held to account for the rule of law to truly matter.”

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee used Thursday’s news about a Trump arraignment to beg its donors “to keep Donald Trump’s allies and enablers out of power.”

The blue committee started by asking donors to weigh whether Trump is “UNFIT” for office and then gave them the opportunity to financially aid Democrats in their quest to protect their party’s majority in the upper chamber.

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee similarly asked donors to give them money following the Trump indictment because “it’s never been more clear that we need to defeat his extremist loyalists in the House.”

“Let us be perfectly clear: In light of the STUNNING news about Donald Trump’s unprecedented indictment, it’s never been more clear that we need to defeat his extremist loyalists in the House,” the DCCC wrote in a fundraising email on Friday.

Senate Majority PAC

The DC-based PAC responsible for keeping Democrats in charge of the narrowly divided Senate told its donors that the indictment and possible arrest of Trump “is an important moment for our democracy” but warned that “our work isn’t over.”

“We must continue protecting our Senate majority from GOP extremists. Please, rush in $10 (becomes $60) to help Defend the Senate,” the PAC wrote in an email.

Oklahoma Democratic Party

The Oklahoma Democratic Party not only celebrated the Manhattan grand jury’s decision but used it as an excuse to ask its donors for more money.

“As Democrats, we cannot let this opportunity pass us by,” a statement from the ODP Vice Chair Eric Proctor reads. “We must act now and make sure we elect leaders who will hold those in power accountable for their actions. We need your support to help us ensure that we have the resources to continue fighting for a better future.”

Proctor admits that “the legal action against Trump jolts the 2024 presidential campaign into a new phase, where the former president has vowed to keep running in the face of criminal charges,” but says that Trump can be combated if donors “will help us continue our efforts to elect Democrats at all levels of government who will stand up for justice and equality.”

It’s no secret that Democrats want Trump gone and will celebrate that opportunity every chance they get. Their willingness to fundraise off Trump’s recent felony indictment further proves their desire for political vengeance has no bounds.
