Dem Super PAC Tip Line Seeks Damaging Info From Trump Announcement (Newsmax)

A top Democratic super PAC has launched a tip line for those attending former President Donald Trump's Tuesday announcement, The Hill Reports. The aim: getting damaging information to hurt Trump in a presidential bid.
American Bridge 21st Century on Monday announced the new project, just one day before Trump is set to make what he has termed a "special announcement" on Tuesday at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. Longtime Trump adviser Stephen Miller said last week that that Trump will be confirming a much-teased run for another term in the White House.
"American Bridge is inviting folks who want to hold Trump accountable to send us tips about anything interesting or newsworthy they see at Trump's announcement on Tuesday," Drew Godinich, senior communications director at the leftist organization, told The Hill.
Godinich said American Bridge expects Mar-a-Lago to be "crawling with fringe weirdos and, potentially, known right-wing lunatics."
"If you're in South Florida and want to join American Bridge in the fight to hold Trump accountable, you should grab your phone and go down to Mar-a-Lago on Tuesday," Goodinch told The Hill. Tips can be emailed to TrumpTips@americanbridge.org, he said.
American Bridge was founded by David Brock, a former conservative-turned-liberal who National Review has described as a "right-wing assassin turned left-wing assassin" and Politico as a "former right-wing journalist-turned-pro-Clinton crusader."
The super PAC in October released a list of 21 Republicans most likely to seek the GOP presidential nomination in 2024. Trump is on the list, along with officials from his administration and prominent GOP senators and governors such as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who just won reelection.
American Bridge already has accused Trump of breaking campaign finance laws, saying he has spent political funds without officially announcing a campaign.
