Lindsey Graham tries to raise money for Trump’s 2024 campaign after indictment
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a longtime ally of former President Donald Trump, attempted to raise money for Trump’s 2024 campaign just hours after the latter was indicted by a New York grand jury on Thursday. In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Graham urged conservatives to donate to Trump’s website, DonaldJTrump.com, to help him fight the « legal voodoo » and « political persecution » of the case. Graham also cast doubt on the testimony of Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer, who previously admitted to paying $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels to stop her from revealing an affair with Trump in 2006.
The announcement of Trump’s indictment has triggered a wave of fundraising messages from politicians on both sides of the aisle, with the Trump campaign debuting a white T-shirt that says « I stand with Trump » as a reward for donating $47 to his campaign. Other GOP figures, such as Missouri Senator Josh Hawley and the National Republican Congressional Committee, are also cashing in on the indictment, while the Democratic Governors Association and multiple Democrat PACs have sent out their own donation requests.
Trump’s history of aggressive fundraising during legal trouble
This is not the first time that Trump’s campaign has aggressively solicited donations during legal trouble. After falsely predicting his arrest on March 14, the Trump campaign sent out multiple fundraising emails calling for contributions, resulting in $1.5 million in donations within three days. Trump’s campaign has a history of using legal troubles as a fundraising tool, and the indictment has provided yet another opportunity for the campaign to solicit donations.
In conclusion, the indictment of former President Donald Trump has triggered a wave of fundraising messages from politicians on both sides of the aisle, with Trump’s allies urging conservatives to donate to his website to help him fight the case. This is not the first time that Trump’s campaign has aggressively solicited donations during legal trouble, and the indictment has provided yet another opportunity for the campaign to use legal troubles as a fundraising tool.
