Trump Raises Unprecedented $Millions Off of Verdict!

Trump Raises Unprecedented $Millions Off of Verdict!

Donald Trump has raised over $70 million in small campaign contributions since the guilty verdict– a record for any 24-hour period for any candidate in history!

As his legal team strategizes about appeals for what he has called a “scam verdict,” Trump’s fundraising is off the charts. The campaign says it raised $52.8 million after a Manhattan jury delivered a guilty verdict in his hush-money trial, highlighting how the verdict has energized rather than alienated his supporters. Since then reports say the total is over $70 million.

The campaign said that the unprecedented sum mostly came from small-dollar donors, including 30% who were new contributors to WinRed, the GOP’s fundraising platform.

While the level of contributions since the guilty verdict is monumental, the Trump campaign has continuously benefited financially from his legal woes. The former president’s fundraising also spiked when he was indicted by federal grand juries in Florida in June 2023 and Washington, DC, in August 2023. He likewise saw a bump when a different judge in New York ordered him to pay $454 million in fines and interest in his civil fraud case in February.

Formulating Appeal

Meanwhile, as the money pours in, Trump and his legal team are hard at work formulating their appeal strategy. Mere hours after he was found guilty on all 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, his legal team vowed to appeal.

Trump’s lead defense attorney, Todd Blanche, said on CNN that the appeal of the convictions would be filed “as soon as we can.” Blanche also told NBC’s Today that they “expect to win on appeal.”

Trump himself spoke to reporters earlier that day from Trump Tower in New York, asserting, “This is a scam. There’s a rigged trial. It shouldn’t have been in that venue. We shouldn’t have had that judge.”

Even some top Democrats have sided with Trump that his trial was a politically motivated scam. In an interview soon after the verdict with NYC’s WABC radio, former NY Democratic Governor David Paterson said that he ” agreed with Trump’s gripes that the case was “rigged.

“There are a lot … of erroneous qualities to that trial,” Paterson said. “Some of the people who are involved: A person who worked at the White House somehow wound up in the Manhattan DA’s Office. All of it, when it adds up, really looks very much like what the former president describes it as,” the top Dem told talk radio host John Catsimatidis.

    It is apparent that those who would be in charge of this assault on our president don’t have a clue as to what is happening. Keep it up yuh bozo’s This is one of the best things you can possibly do for our “real” President.

    We don’t need an appeal. We need an arrest of Merchan and his daughter. Throw in Bragg, too. I see where three of the jurors have been taken to Gitmo. Good move.

    The email says, “The conviction seems to be backfiring…” . The verdict is a legal victory for “rule of law” which the GOP seems to brag to be the champion of (unless they are in the defendant’s chair). LOL Trump was indicted and then convicted because of his crimes, not for political reasons. And no proof has been offered otherwise – its just a MAGA wet dream. The fact that MAGA people want to pay all of felon Trump’s legal bills is a different issue. 🙂

      The fact is that Trump was wrongly convicted by leftist judge and jury. So look at what’s coming next.

        Archie, you do know there was one or more Republicans on the jury that could have hung it and caused a mistrial. Apparently, they didn’t even try. I am sorry, but this guy is a liar and a crook and has a very long history of both.

        He defrauded his Trump University students.

        He stole from his own Trump Foundation charity.

        His business is corrupt having numerous felony convictions

        He is adjudicated as a sexual abuser of the digital rape variety.

        He is adjudicated for defamation of women,

        His business is corrupt and guilty of numerous felonies.

        And now he is a convicted felon too,

        His 2016 campaign leadership management all went to jail for a variety of reasons. He pardoned them all.

        He’s a convicted felon for rigging the 2016 election by paying hush money to stifle free speech and keep bad Trump stories out of the press and the reader’s eyes.

        His 2020 election legal team pleaded guilty to trying to rig the 2020 election; think we are up to three lawyers now

        His personal lawyer is penalized $146M for spreading Trump’s defamation manure.

        FYI: the judge does not convict, he punishes. The jury convicts. As such, it’s a wise man indeed that pisses all over the umpire before the first pitch. He’s lucky the judge is fair and balanced. Most think too fair
