Hillary Clinton is using news that former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property was raised to raise funds for her campaign platform, “Onward Together.”

In a tweet on Tuesday, Clinton revealed that “Every ‘But her emails’ hat or shirt sold helps @onwardtogether partners defend democracy, build a progressive bench, and fight for our values,” ending her tweet with “Just saying.”

Clinton’s “But her Emails” merch is a reference to her use of a personal email server to house classified emails during her time as Secretary of State. The emails and subsequent investigation by the FBI became a sticking point during her 2016 Presidential campaign against Trump. The former President homed in on the emails, even after then-FBI director James Comey concluded in June 2016, that Clinton’s handling of sensitive information was “extremely careless” but didn’t recommend criminal charges.

Tuesday’s tweet isn’t the first time Clinton plugged her merch — which includes huts, mugs, T-shirts, and stickers — when Trump has been embroiled in an investigation.
In February, ahead of Valentine’s day and while news broke that Trump had apparently flushed official documents down the toilets during his time in the Oval Office, Clinton tweeted, that supporters get their hands on the merch “just in time for Galentine’s Day, and the news that Trump was flushing documents down White House toilets.”

In both tweets, Clinton shared an edited image of herself wearing the “But her Emails” hat sold by her political action organization for $30.
