On Tuesday, the Trump campaign fired off an email with the provocative subject line “Have you heard about the Hillary indictment?” asking potential donors to help (figuratively) “indict Clinton” and “find her guilty of all charges” (i.e. not elect her president).

With a series of buttons soliciting donations “to indict,” one might mistakenly assume that Trump was promising to somehow charge his opponent with a crime. The fine print, however, makes it clear that the email is talking about a symbolic conviction in the greatest court of all: The hearts and minds of the American people.

From Conservative Patriot:

Every Election Day, politicians stand trial before the people.

The voters are the jury. Their ballots are the verdict.

And, on November 8th, the American people will finally have the chance to do what the authorities have been too afraid to do over these last 2 decades: INDICT HILLARY CLINTON AND FIND HER GUILTY OF ALL CHARGES.

But why stop there? As long as Clinton’s upcoming trial is strictly metaphorical, Trump might as well ask conservatives to help banish his rival to the Phantom Zone.
