'In light of recent news': Hillary Clinton plugs 'Emails' merchandise after Trump indictment

Following former President Donald Trump's criminal indictment by a grand jury Thursday, Hillary Clinton is seizing the opportunity to promote merchandise in "support" of her super PAC, Onward Together, The Messenger reports.

On Friday, the former 2016 Democratic presidential candidate shared a link to onwardtogether.org, writing, "Bringing this back in light of recent news: Get a limited-edition But Her Emails hat and support @onwardtogether groups working to strengthen our democracy."

Per The Hill, Clinton also "made a similar sales push for the 'But Her Emails' hats last year, following a New York Times report that Trump had disposed of documents in the toilet of the White House as president," The Hill reports.

Days prior to the former president's Florida indictment, former Trump attorney Timothy Parlatore was slammed by several experts via social media after comparing his ex-client's documents to Clinton's emails during a Meet the Press interview.

Parlatore concluded, "I know not a lot of people are gonna agree with this, um, parallel, but to me, even if he did a lot of the things that they're saying that he did. Prosecuting him, the same reasons why you wouldn't want to prosecute him is to why back in 2016, I was of the opinion that Hillary Clinton shouldn't be prosecuted, because there are all of these other problems. You have to, classification is not binding on the jury. You have to actually take these documents, show them to the jury, and then prove to them that it constitutes national defense information."

The Hill reports, "Clinton faced scrutiny in 2016 over her use of a personal email server while secretary of State, with the practice becoming a major political issue during her presidential campaign against Trump," adding, "The former first lady's emails were subject to numerous investigations, including by the FBI, which declined to charge her with violating federal records-keeping requirements or other crimes."

Onward Together's website notes "each purchase is a contribution to" the organization, which according to The Messenger, Clinton launched after the 2016 election.
