Nine conservative groups caught bulk buying Donald Trump Jr.’s book onto the Best Seller’s list

Published

Nearly ten conservative groups or officials have been accused of inflating sales of Donald Trump Jr.’s new book by purchasing it in bulk.

The New York Times reported on Thursday that conservative student group Turning Point U.S.A. is “stocking piling” roughly 2,000 copies of Trump’s book “Triggered.”

According to the Times, at least nine organizations or conservative personalities have participated in the bulk purchases.

Earlier in November, the Republican National Committee said that it had raised $200,000 off of $75,000 in book purchases. Citizens United is another group offering the book to its followers.

Turning Point said that it had purchased the book to provide to students ahead of Don Trump Jr.’s appearance at their December summit.

“When an author headlines a Turning Point USA event, we regularly purchase the author’s latest work for the students in our chapters who attend,” a Turning Point spokesperson told the Times. “As one of our most requested speakers, Don is headlining our student-leadership conference in Florida this December, and so we purchased copies for some of the students, chapter leaders and V.I.P.s.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and the Texas Republican Party are fundraising off of the book.

“Leader McCarthy shares a close relationship with Donald Trump Jr. and was thrilled to offer ‘Triggered’ to his campaign supporters,” a spokesperson for McCarthy said.

A representative for Trump insisted that the bulk purchases had little impact on the book’s status on the New York Times Best Seller’s list.

“Don is proud of the fact that the demand for ‘Triggered’ has been so high that it has allowed groups like the R.N.C., N.R.S.C. and the N.R.C.C. to net hundreds of thousands of dollars through their marketing of the book,” Trump spokesperson Andy Surabian said.

Published

On Thursday, an explosive new report showed that not only was Russia planning once again to sabotage the U.S. presidential election, but that President Donald Trump was furious when intelligence officials informed House Democratic investigators of this threat — shortly before he announced he would be replacing the acting Director of National Intelligence with a hardcore partisan loyalist.

But according to The Daily Beast, Trump wasn't the only one who was outraged. House Republicans who received the briefing also objected to the intelligence.

REVEALED: Bloomberg NDA gave women a specific script to read if asked about what the company did

Published

on

One of the key moments in Wednesday nights Democratic debate came when Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) pressed former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg on why he won't release women from Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) that prevent them from discussing alleged wrongdoing at his companies.

President Donald Trump also used an NDA is his hush-money scheme to silence Stormy Daniels.

Warren asked Bloomberg to release the women from the agreements, "so we can hear their side of the story."

Former Vice President Joe Biden also joined in, but Bloomberg refused to allow the women to tell their story -- and couldn't even answer Warren's question about the number of women who are gagged by NDAs.
