Brock vows Trump to be dogged by his ‘Bre­it­bart of the left’

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Dou­glas Ernst

One of failed pres­i­den­tial hope­ful Hil­lary Clin­ton’s long­time as­so­ci­ates plans to soften the blow of de­feat by creat­ing the “Bre­it­bart of the left.”

Demo­cratic in­sider David Brock told re­porters Tues­day that Pres­i­den­t­elect Don­ald Trump will soon face with­er­ing at­tacks from the su­per PAC Amer­i­can Bridge, as well as a web­site de­signed to ri­val Bre­it­bart News.

“The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion is shap­ing up to be one of the most cor­rupt since the Gilded Age,” Mr. Brock said. “Amer­i­can Bridge will use ev­ery­thing at its dis­posal to hold it ac­count­able.”

Mr. Brock, whose re­sume in­cludes the cre­ation of Me­dia Mat­ters for Amer­ica, added that the web­site Share­blue is primed to be­come a left-wing me­dia pow­er­house with sup­port from donors. Over 225 lib­eral donors have been in­vited to a Florida meet­ing dur­ing Mr. Trump’s in­au­gu­ral week­end to dis­cuss strate­gies and funds.

Mr. Brock is no stranger to trend­ing so­cial me­dia sto­ries. His name was men­tioned in Wik­iLeaks doc­u­ments be­long­ing to Clin­ton cam­paign chair­man John Podesta. “Hil­lary truly un­der­stands now how bats — t crazy David Brock is,” Neera Tan­den, head of the Cen­ter for Amer­i­can Progress, told Mr. Podesta in a Feb. 11, 2015, email.
