Washington, DC — On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that former presidents have broad immunity from prosecution for criminal acts in their official presidential capacity.

Movement Voter PAC, which helps Democratic and progressive donors invest in local voter organizing groups in swing states, released this statement:

“This ruling means the stakes of this election just got higher. If Trump wins, the most vulnerable will suffer the most. So here is our message to anti-Trump donors: Do not despair – double down and invest in the ground game like our democracy depends on it.”

“Since Biden’s debate performance, some have said they’re not donating until Biden drops out. Others have said they’re not donating until everyone stands firm with him. Both only help Trump, and misgauge how we defeat him: Investing in peer-to-peer voter engagement by grassroots organizing groups.

“Regardless of this ruling and no matter who is on the Democratic ticket, the math and the strategy stay the same: Target the swing states, invest in the organizing groups that can mobilize the hardest-to-reach Democratic voters, and do it now while every dollar yields more votes.

“Join us so that, the morning after the election, we can rejoice in having won by a fraction of a percentage point, instead of regret in having lost by that same margin.”
