Two-time presidential election loser Hillary Clinton tried capitalizing on news of the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, sending out a pitch on Twitter for followers to purchase “But Her Emails” merchandise.
The raid, criticized by Republicans as the weaponization of the Justice Department against political opponents, reportedly involves an investigation into the handling of classified documents that may have been brought to his Palm Beach home.
Clinton tweeted a link to a shop for Onward Together selling hats and t-shirts with the phrase “But Her Emails” emblazoned on them, a reference to her private email server scandal.
“Every ‘But her emails’ hat or shirt sold helps @onwardtogether partners defend democracy, build a progressive bench, and fight for our values,” she wrote. “Just saying!”
Clinton provides a link to the store offering $32 hats, but the supply is currently listed as ‘sold out.’ The $30 t-shirts are also out of stock.
Onward Together is a PAC founded by the former First Lady in 2017 to fundraise for progressive political groups and Democratic candidates.

Trump Slams Hillary Clinton After Raid at Mar-a-Lago
The audacity of mocking Donald Trump over the raid of his home is next level for Hillary Clinton, especially considering the raid reportedly involved classified documents in his home, something she was famously cleared of by the FBI despite mountains of evidence.
Clinton has never been held accountable for mishandling classified information on a private server. She has never had to explain why she deleted over 33,000 emails while aides used hammers and BleachBit to destroy their cell phones and laptops.
And she’s laughing in your face about it.

Trump addressed the hypocrisy of the partisan FBI in a statement regarding the raid.
“It is political targeting at the highest level!” he said of the Mar-a-Lago siege.
“Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress,” Trump stated. “Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House.”
Trump Drops 2024 Hint After Raid
Trump, as is characteristic of his personality, came out swinging following news of the FBI raid at his home, in an ad posted to his Truth Social media account.
“We are a nation that in many ways has become a joke,” Trump said in the ad. “But soon we will have greatness again.”
Trump in the ad predicts that “the best is yet to come.”

Democrats had a virtual coronary when Trump suggested during the 2016 campaign that Clinton would be in jail if he were President. His FBI never raided Clinton’s home. She was never held accountable. The DOJ under Trump never followed up.
Yes, Hillary Clinton is attempting to fundraise off of the Mar-a-Lago raid, before the FBI has explained itself. Just a reminder: The DOJ under Trump never raided the Clintons’ residence. When Hillary took classified information, she wasn’t president so she couldn’t declassify it https://t.co/yTCi9zF2nw

It will be interesting to watch those same individuals who celebrated her being cleared of wrongdoing for having classified documents in her home insist that Donald Trump belongs in prison for – allegedly – the same exact accusation.
