(FiveNation.com)- Even after blaming former President Donald Trump for the violence that occurred on January 6 in Washington, D.C., Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is reportedly fundraising off the back of the 45th President’s success.
The Gateway Pundit revealed how, in a series of email messages sent out to Republican voters and supporters, an organization working on behalf of McConnell is fundraising off the huge popularity of the former president.
Conservative reporter Larry Johnson revealed how he received an email in his inbox with the subject, “TRUMP HAS BROKEN HIS SILENCE!”
The email said that they need 1,000 patriots to “STAND WITH TRUMP before midnight tonight!” and offered a 4x match status until midnight.
“Democrats have tried to convict Trump through two sham impeachment trials. And now that they have failed, the Far Left’s new priority will be to go erase every achievement President Trump and Republicans achieved over the last four years,” the email continued.
But Johnson noticed right at the very end of the email, it was signed, “NRSC HQ.”
“This is as swampy as it gets,” he said. “This entity works for Mitch McConnell, not the Trump voters.”
The email was paid for by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which is the “only national organization solely devoted to strengthening the Republican Senate Majority and electing Republicans to the United States Senate.”
And while the fundraising emails play heavily on President Donald Trump’s support and efforts to ensure election integrity, the official NSRC website makes no reference to the misconduct that occurred in the last election, nor the witch hunt campaigns against the former president.
The NRSC is also chaired by Senator Rick Scott, a Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 2018, and previously served two terms as the Governor of Florida.
The Gateway Pundit reminded readers how Scott has joined Republican Senator Marco Rubio in supporting a new gun confiscation bill that Democrats may just pass now that they control both chambers of Congress.
Establishment-type GOP organizations campaigning off the back of President Donald Trump is unlikely to end well, with the former president quick to criticize hypocrites. Trump recently slammed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for his refusal to work with the president and Congress on a $2,000 COVID relief check bill in the run-up to the 2020 election.
