Trump Fundraises On Chance To Finally ‘Indict Hillary Clinton’

Donald Trump was fundraising Tuesday off the House Benghazi Committee’s final report, offering donors the chance to “indict” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by donating the campaign $5, $10 or more.

“Every Election Day, politicians stand trial before the people,” team Trump wrote in a fundraising email. “The voters are the jury. Their ballots are the verdict.”

Calling the presumptive Democratic nominee “a world-class liar,” the email said voters will have the chance in November to “INDICT HILLARY CLINTON AND FIND HER GUILTY OF ALL CHARGES.”

The email didn’t specify what charges those might be.

Here’s a screenshot of the fundraising plea, flagged by Time’s Zeke Miller:

In the report, House Republicans faulted the Obama administration for a slow response to the 2012 siege on the U.S. diplomatic compound but offered up no new allegations about Clinton’s handling of the attack.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
