Forty-fifth President and leading 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump is proving far-left District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s frivolous indictment of him has only just begun backfiring in his favor as he has reportedly raised a whopping $9.5 million dollars off of the indictment so far.
Trump Advisor Jason Miller announced Trump raised $1.1 million on Monday alone.
“President @realDonaldTrump raised another $1.1M today. This means that through today, four days after @ManhattanDA entered the latest phase of their Witch-Hunt, President Trump has raised over $8M,” Miller wrote in a post on Twitter.

In the three days after Trump first announced, on his top-rated social media platform, Truth Social, on March 18, his expected arrest he discovered from “illegal leaks” from Bragg’s office, the Trump campaign revealed that they raised an impressive $1.5-million in grassroots fundraising.
That brings the total amount of money raised to $9.5 million.
Trump has posted several times on Truth Social urging his supporters who are “doing well” to donate.
“If you are doing poorly, as so many of you are, do not send anything. If you are doing well, which was made possible through the great policies of the Trump Administration, send your contribution to DonaldJTrump.Com. We have to take back our Country and, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN,” Trump wrote on Monday.

In the first 24 hours after the indictment was announced, over 25 percent of the donations came from first-time donors. That’s not all, either. Trump’s campaign revealed to Axios over 16,000 volunteers have signed up on Trump’s campaign website in the first 24 hours.
Bragg could face up to five years in prison if he is responsible for leaking Trump’s frivolous indictment.
Leaking grand jury testimony is a Class E felony under New York state law and carries a prison sentence between one and five years.
“A Class E felony charge is considered more serious than a misdemeanor charge, and as such carries a potentially longer jail sentence. While a Class A misdemeanor in New York carries a sentence of up to 364 days, a Class E felony can result in a sentence of between one year and five years,” according to The Law Offices of Julie Rendelman.
The New York County Clerk’s office issued an order on March 31 stating Bragg is only allowed to disclose to the public that Trump’s indictment has been issued.
On Tuesday, Trump is expected to be fingerprinted in New York, but not have a mug shot taken. After the booking is complete, Trump will appear before a judge for his arraignment where he will face 30 currently unknown charges due to Bragg’s sealed indictment.
Trump’s campaign announced on Sunday that after he flies back from New York to Palm Beach, Florida, on Tuesday, Trump is set to deliver remarks about his experience at his Mar-A-Lago club.
Trump’s lawyers are bracing for Judge Justice Juan Merchan to place a gag order on Trump in an attempt to prevent him from speaking about his arrest on Tuesday.
Under New York law, the fine for breaking a gag order holds a penalty of either 30 days in jail or a $1,000 fine.
Bragg, who has been exposed as being funded by a group supported by far-left billionaire George Soros, was able to get a Manhattan grand jury to vote to indict Trump on Thursday.
Adult film “star” Stormy Daniels was ordered to pay Trump $300,000 after losing a defamation case against him. However, on Thursday, a Manhattan grand jury voted to indict President Trump over a $130,000 payment to Daniels made by his former lawyer and now-convicted liar, Michael Cohen.
This makes Trump the first American president to ever face criminal charges.
The Color of Change PAC, the “nation’s largest online racial justice organization”, which was given $1 million in May 2021 from Soros, gave $1 million to Bragg but later pulled back half of their donation.
