Happy Hour News
Shocking and hard to believe, I know:
Mere hours after the FBI searched former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Monday, Republicans and right-wing groups used the opportunity to boost their political fundraising efforts.
A volley of emails on Monday night and Tuesday morning denounced the FBI’s search warrant — reportedly connected to classified materials that Trump allegedly brought to his Florida resort after leaving the White House — and slammed both the agency and the Biden administration.
“Biden’s FBI raided President Trump’s beautiful Florida home,” the Republican National Committee wrote in a fundraising email, adding that “it’s hard to believe it but it’s true.”
“These are dark times for our Nation,” read an email from Trump’s fundraising team. “The lawlessness, political persecution, and Witch Hunt, must be exposed and stopped.”
An email from the National Republican Senatorial Committee called the raid “unprecedented,” while Trump’s political action committee Save America and the Tea Party Patriots Action group both railed against Democrats and the Biden administration in their fundraising emails.
And if you can believe it, Lord Damp Nut is skimming the cream off the top from WinRed donations, as Scissorhead Bluegal has documented so many times over at Crooks and Liars.
