Don’t look now, but your desperation is showing.
In November 2017, the RNC’s November announced it raised $8.2 million. According to the RNC, it’s the most money the NCC has ever raised in a non-election year, bringing the RNC total raised to $121.4 million by the end of November 2017.
The DNC, meanwhile, raised $5.7 million in November and has raised roughly $62 million so far in 2017, according to fillings with the Federal Election Commission.
The Democrats are desperate to raise money ahead of the 2018 elections, but, how desperate are they? Are they desperate enough to start out a fundraising email to members of their party with a LIE?
The WFB is reporting that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) sent out a fundraising email for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Friday with a subject line saying special counsel Robert Mueller is “fired.”
By clicking on the email, readers could learn that President Donald Trump has not actually fired Mueller. Pelosi instead registered outrage at the speculation that Trump may get rid of him.
“I’m so furious I can barely write this email,” Pelosi started.
Then she criticized her fellow members of Congress in the Republican Party for “helping” Trump fire Mueller.
“President Trump is inches away from firing Robert Mueller and derailing the entire Russia investigation. And my Republican colleagues are actively HELPING him,” the email continued.
She said she needs a massive fundraising surge to send the message that if Republicans let Trump fire Mueller, “we’ll kick each and EVERY one of them out of office.”
Pelosi preceded her donation request by claiming, “Robert Mueller’s our only hope for justice — and we’re the only ones who can protect him.”
The DCCC sent an update email later on Friday hammering the same issue, starting with “We’re PULSING with rage.”
“This is a coordinated effort to shield Trump from justice. We can’t stand for it,” the email said, asking for another contribution.
Even leftist MSNBC cable network correspondent Garrett Haake mocked Pelosi and the DCCC for their dishonest “clickbait” fundraiser headline.
