Donald Trump sent out a fundraising email on Tuesday, saying Americans will have the chance to “indict” presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton at the ballot box this November.
The presumptive GOP nominee calls on supporters to chip in a small-dollar amount and ticks through a list of controversies Clinton has been embroiled in.

Trump labeled her “a world-class liar” when it comes to the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, and her use of a private email server while secretary of State.
“Every Election Day, politicians stand trial before the people,” the fundraising email reads. “The voters are the jury. Their ballots are the verdict.”
The email continues, “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.”
The fundraising pitch comes hours after the GOP-led House Select Committee on Benghazi released its 800-page report Tuesday morning, criticizing the Obama administration and Clinton.
The Benghazi report, produced after two years of work at a cost of $7 million, offered a number of new facts about the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack that left four Americans dead, though it did not appear to substantially change the partisan debate surrounding the incident.
Trump has been stepping up his fundraising efforts as he seeks to run a more traditional campaign. He reported just $1.3 million in the bank as of the start of June, after raising just $3.1 million in May. He significantly trails Clinton, who has $42.5 million in the bank by comparison.
The email claims that after he sent out his first fundraising email last week, his campaign has raised more than $2 million in 12 hours and in a few days, raised more than $11 million.
