Hillary Clinton ally David Brock has no plans to just sit and lick his wounds after the unexpected loss of his presidential candidate last week.
Politico reports that Brock is sending out invitations to Democratic donors to gather in Palm Beach on Inauguration Day to discuss how to fight Donald Trump's presidency.
"This will be THE gathering for Democratic donors from across the country to hear from a broad and diverse group of leaders about the next steps for progressives under a Trump Administration," Brock said in an email sent to top donors including George Soros, Tom Steyer and Donald Sussman.
Brock told Politico in an interview that the meeting will be only the first of a series of such gatherings, and that even more donors will be receiving the invitation.
"What better way to spend inaugural weekend than talking about how to kick Donald Trump’s ass?" Brock told the website.
Brock, a former conservative who after his left-wing conversion founded the liberal Media Matters for America and other groups, including super PACs American Bridge and Correct the Record, said he hopes to use the court system to fight Republicans much as the conservative Judicial Watch has done against Democrats.
Judicial Watch was behind Freedom of Information Act requests that exposed many of Clinton's emails that she sent and received on her private server.
Politico reported earlier this week of talk among progressives in Washington, D.C., of forming a liberal version of Judicial Watch.
In his email, Brock vowed to continue the work his previous groups started during the George W. Bush administration.
"In 2005, we were part of a successful progressive effort to regroup, retool and recover," he said. "While today's situation is more dire, media matters more than ever."
