This Is How The Clinton Campaign Asked For Donations During The Benghazi Hearing

Throughout the day today, the Clinton campaign has touted its fundraising haul, claiming they raised money online without sending any fundraising emails. But wait! That is a bit deceptive: the Clinton campaign sent out multiple emails that led supporters to a donate page. Here is how:

At a little after 1 pm yesterday, Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta sent an email asking people on Clinton’s email list to sign a petition to show their support for Clinton during the Benghazi hearing:

clinton-benghazi-hearing-email

When you clicked to sign up, the link sent you to a simple sign up page:

clinton-benghazi-hearing-petition-page

And if you signed the petition, you were then led to a donation page:

clinton-benghazi-hearing-donate-page

And that is how the Clinton campaign raised money during the Benghazi hearing.
