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