Former President Donald Trump raised more than $4 million in the first 24 hours after news broke that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicted him.
“This incredible surge of grassroots contributions confirms that the American people see the indictment of President Trump as a disgraceful weaponization of our justice system by a Soros-funded prosecutor,” a Trump campaign press release read.
Notably, more than 25 percent of donations came from first-time Trump donors, “further solidifying President Trump’s status as the clear frontrunner in the Republican primary,” the press release continued.
The average contribution from donors was $34.
“President Trump’s 2024 campaign is funded by an unmatched coalition of hardworking patriots who are fed up with special interest donors like Soros spending billions of dollars to influence our elections,” the press release continued. “Americans from across all 50 states donated to President Trump’s campaign within the first 5 hours of the sham indictment.”
A campaign official also told NBC that it received 16,000 volunteer sign-ups in the same period.
Bragg’s case against Trump focuses on the alleged role he played in paying potn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money. Trump will likely make his first appearance in court for his arraignment next week.
Trump’s campaign sent out more than six fundraising emails in the aftermath of the indictment.
Wow before the mug shot mugs hit the market.
We are going to own this.
Did you know that Alvin Bragg previously suspended investigations of Trump owing to insufficient evidence, over the objections his top prosecutors? They resigned in protest.
Bragg has set high evidentiary standards for prosecution. This time, they’ve apparently got something that cleared it, and the Grand Jury obviously agreed.
You hang your hat on that Greggie, the walls are closing in, bombshell, it doesnt alter the fact that Trump can campaign from jail if he needs to. The best legal minds in the country call Fat Alvin an idiot.
The best legal minds in the country deal with evidence and laws, not the manipulation of public opinion.
They don’t need to. The FBI had that covered when they were using Twitter and the rest of social media.
Anyone arresting Trump or supporting the arrest of trump is committing sedition against the United States of America.
The fundamental nature of insanity is simply not being connected to what is. 7 years of investigations, spying not a thing but HEY HEY HEY FAT ALBERT.
You mean the illegal leaks of the grand jury case to liberal media didnt manipulate public opinion? Huh what a bubble you live in, strange little bubble.
You mean, when he WASN’T A LEADING REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE? Yeah, we kinda already knew that. It doesn’t help his case. If Bragg had actual legal evidentiary standards, there would be no indictment. He has POLITICAL, not legal, requirements.
All “research”, I’m sure.

Under fire, Trump builds a wall in Congress
Members of the House who have
Not members of the three committees above
Former President Trump has been endorsed by 37 House Republicans — including more than a third of the GOP members on Judiciary and Oversight, two committees he’s pushing to investigate President Biden and Manhattan’s district attorney.
Why it matters: Trump’s endorsements, which also include five Republican senators, reflect the congressional wall of support he has built to boost his 2024 presidential campaign — and help him dig up dirt on his political and legal foes.
Trump, now facing criminal charges in New York, frequently chats by phone with supporters such as House Judiciary chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and GOP Conference chair Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) to discuss Republicans’ probes into Biden and Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.
Jordan and Stefanik — also members of the Judiciary’s panel that targets what it calls the “weaponization” of law enforcement against conservatives — are particularly key players in Trump’s orbit.
They wield significant influence on panels that have tried—so far unsuccessfully—to get documents and testimony from Bragg’s probe into alleged hush money payments Trump made to porn star Stormy Daniels.
The big picture: Trump has been able to maintain a grip on much of the GOP base even as he’s faced criminal investigations in New York and Georgia, and by the Justice Department.
9 of the 25 Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee support him.
11 of the 26 Republicans on House Oversight do as well.
Zoom in: Trump backers in the House leadership also include GOP Conference Secretary Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.).
Other notable House Republicans endorsing Trump include Jim Banks (Indiana), who is running for Senate, Small Business Committee chair Roger Williams (Texas), Veterans Affairs chair Mike Bost (Illinois), and Ronny Jackson (Texas).
Trump’s endorsements in the Senate: Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), J.D. Vance (R-Ohio), Eric Schmitt (R-Mo.), and Markwayne Mullin (R-Oka.).
Between the lines: In recent weeks, Jackson and Stefanik have been calling House colleagues on Trump’s behalf, asking for endorsements, people familiar with the calls tell Axios.
Team Trump has been keeping close tabs on who has endorsed — and who hasn’t.
At his rally in Waco, Texas, last weekend, Trump suggested that GOP lawmakers who did not endorse him were not welcome at his rallies: “If they don’t endorse me, I said don’t even come.”
But Trump recognizes there are allies — such as Kentucky Rep. James Comer, chair of House Oversight — who have been helpful to him but have not yet endorsed.
Trump will claim he’s the only solution to the chaos he himself creates, while his followers pay for the commercials.
Sock puppet Joe is doing a bang up job, we have another train derailed and leaking an unknown substance into a river in Montana, the transportation guy cant seem to get these railcars inspected and or repaired. Must be a donation issue with Buffet.
You people have a lot of experience with “claiming you have the solution to a virus/war/crisis” you yourself created, eh?
Democrats have created the chaos, the violence, the terrorism, in response to Trump’s lawful election. The Democrat party is totally corrupt from top to bottom; corrupt and fascist.
Already up to $8 million.
