David Brock, founder of the leftist group Media Matters and the pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC Correct the Record, says he will start going after Trump “once we know for sure who the nominee is.”
In an interview with MSNBC’s Tamron Hall on “The Place For Politics 2016” on Wednesday, Brock said, “We’re going to go out and make a case to the American people against Donald Trump in a way that the Republican Party frankly has failed and has failed to do.”
Before Brock announced his plans to attack Trump, Hall noted that the Republican front-runner will talk about Benghazi and Clinton’s “alleged criminal investigations.” Hall asked Brock if Clinton wants to “battle” Trump and he said, “Sure, well look, it’s probably inevitable at this point.”
“[I]t’s true that Republicans have gotten in the mud, particularly in the last few days with Donald Trump, but I think the reality is, Republicans have not run a real campaign against Donald Trump. I think they were afraid of alienating his supporters. Democrats are going to be able to run that campaign. And we are going to stand up to Donald Trump as Democrats and as Americans,” Brock said.
However, Hall said to Brock, “You know nothing gets the base of the GOP going as much as Hillary Clinton.” Brock agreed, suggesting, “We’ve been watching the Republicans for a generation. There’s a belief in the Republican Party there’s also a silver bullet against the Clintons and they focus on scandal. That’s what Donald Trump is focusing on.” (RELATED: Bill Clinton’s Alleged Former Mistress: ‘Hillary Is A Lesbian’)
Brock then claimed Trump is “going to find like everybody else, doesn’t work. There’s nothing there.” (RELATED: FBI Director: ‘I Am Very Close’ To Hillary’s Investigation [VIDEO])
Later Hall asked when Super PACs supporting Clinton will start to go after Trump, and Brock said, “Well I think once we know for sure who the nominee is, we are going to be prepared. We have been doing research on Donald Trump for months. We’re not late to the game. And we’re going to go out and make a case to the American people against Donald Trump in a way that the Republican Party frankly has failed and has failed to do. They haven’t vetted him. We’ll do better.”
