TEAM TRUMP CASHING IN ON BIDEN’S ‘ULTRA MAGA’ BLUNDEROne Trump-skeptical fundraiser who is backing down-ballot Republicans said, “Donors are very concerned that Trump is the one Republican who can lose in 2024.” And another noted that in the wake of explosive Jan. 6 committee hearings outlining Trump’s involvement in attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, “I don’t think any major donor with business interests would support a Trump presidential run.”

Top donors have also been holding regular meetings to discuss 2024 contenders that they are considering supporting, with Trump rarely mentioned, according to CNBC.Beneficiaries of a realignment among GOP donors include former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Both men, considered leading Republican presidential contenders if Trump decides against running, have dramatically stepped up their fundraising apparatuses. DeSantis has raised over $124 million ostensibly for his reelection campaign, an exorbitant sum for a governor’s race he is expected to win easily.

House Jan. 6 committee emulates Trump’s showman style of politics in its bid to undo himThe House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot is using former President Donald Trump ’s showmanship playbook to try to scuttle his political future. I have a question for the press: Are you happy with the access and information given to you by the Biden Administration? HE TRIED TO MURDER THE LINE OF SUCCESSION TO STAY IN POWER

Of course the NeverTrumperNews thinks so! The Committee's Hearsaying was DESIGNED to present a lopsided perspective of the events, PREVENT any different perspective. IT WAS A SHOW and sensible people know it. Your sources? RINOs that never supported him in the first place, Democrats, & Liz Cheney, right?

The media tweets so many lies about Trump that my first instinct is to not believe anything they write. Now they're celebrating hearsay 'evidence' in the Jan 6 hearings. Can we all just move behind Desantis? Trump is too old and too divisive Quid pro quo sucks w/ Trump.. He'll win again for us... They will fall in line the minute Trump announces his run.

We don't care about RINO's interested in stabbing Trump in the back. Another bullshit story.

If he would have shown up during the impeachment hearings, none of this would be happening.

The Jan. 6 Hearings Are a TV Hit With an Unexpected Main CharacterPlot twists, surprise guest stars, and a classic Peak TV antihero.

SPLC says it's working with Jan. 6 committee to track Trump's ties to extremismThe Southern Poverty Law Center, a legal advocacy organization that tracks hate and extremism, is working with the House Jan. 6 select committee to document extremist groups' involvement in the insurrection.

Former GOP governor: Jan. 6 testimony makes Trump look 'unhinged'Tom Kean Sr. said that although he supported a lot of the things Donald Trump did as president, recent testimony about Trump, if accurate, was 'very, very disturbing.'

The corporations are walking all over him. “If accurate”… lol How’s THIS for accurate!! if accurate.

PolitiFact - No evidence Pelosi ‘rejected’ Trump’s authorization for ‘20,000 National Guard’ before Jan. 6 attackThere is no record of Trump formally authorizing 20,000 National Guard troops prior to the Jan. 6 attack. There is also no record of Pelosi rejecting such an authorization — which she would not have had the authority to do so as House speaker. Sure and we are expected to believe you, LOL When republicans hold their hearings, you will learn that Dems rigged the Jan 6th ordeal and Trump did offer Military aid and Nancy did reject it, you will learn why Republicans will never learn that trump is not a republican not a democrat. He is in this to con people & take their money. It's been proven so many times in so many ways Fake news🙄🙄
