Is she the woman in pink that they were looking for?

Seriously doubt it, her job is to rally the rubes to do her dirty work, not to sully her own hands

Let’s see the defense for the organizers - “I thought it was going to be a peaceful rally.”

And for the Donald - “I never explicitly told them to hang Mike Pence or shoot Nancy.”

And for the rioters - “We were only following orders.”

Former president Donald Trump’s new political action committee raised $31.5 million in the weeks after Election Day through a flurry of fundraising appeals purporting to fight election fraud and help Republicans maintain their majority in the Senate, new filings show.

But by Jan. 1 — two weeks after the electoral college certified President-elect Joe Biden’s victory and days before the two Senate elections in Georgia that tipped control of the chamber to Democrats — he spent no money on either endeavor, according to disclosures made public Sunday evening.

Instead, Trump had held on to the majority of that money in the coffers of Save America, his new leadership PAC, which carries few restrictions on how the money can be spent and can now be used to finance his post-presidential political career.

Love to see some of this spin off into areas of interest to Letitia James and Cy Vance.

Then again, their plates are probably overflowing already.
