Allies of President Donald Trump reportedly want to raise millions for their crusade against journalists.
According to a Tuesday Axios report, pro-Trump conservatives are trying to raise $2 million to fund their mission to gather damaging information on reporters and editors from major outlets, such as the New York Times and Washington Post.
The New York Times reported last week that the President’s allies were compiling dossiers based on journalists’ old posts on social media and public comments in order to undermine the “Fake News” Trump whines about virtually every day.
This new effort seems to be a more formal offshoot of the looser endeavor to dig up embarrassing or potentially professional damaging social media posts from journalists.
