Democrats raise funds for televised House Anti-Trump Committee hearing

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sought to monetize the partisan, anti-Trump January 6 Select Committee by sending fundraising emails to its supporters shortly after its “discoveries” began airing on prime-time television on Thursday night.

In an email sent Thursday night at 8:21 pm, the DNC asked in the subject line, “Are you watching the hearings on January 6th tonight?”

“Tonight, TV cameras will turn to Capitol Hill as the January 6 Select Committee begins its public hearings,” the email read. “Donald Trump and his Republican allies at MAGA organized a mob and incited a deadly insurrection to try to overturn a fair, free and safe election.”

Recipients of the email were asked, as they read the email, to “make a $25 donation” to the DNC “to help elect Democrats.”

“MAGA Republicans didn’t stop after January. Across the country they have continued to undermine our democracy, furthering Trump’s Big Lie and making it harder to vote.” the claimed email.

The bottom of the email was signed “Thank you” from “The Democrats.”

House Democrats used the party committee appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), made up of six Democrats and two Republicans, who voted to impeach Donald Trump to investigate the former president.

The committee, chaired by Democratic Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS), used more than $8 million in taxpayer dollars for the year-long investigation, as estimated by Republicans on the House Management Committee.

Democrats appear to be using the prime-time television commercial as a last-ditch effort to plead their case before a red tsunami brews in the upcoming November midterm elections, as Breitbart News noted in a LiveWire.
