A group of President Trump's allies led by Donald Trump Jr.'s "fixer" are trying to raise at millions of dollars to investigate journalists who cover the administration, in an apparent effort to discredit them.

As Trump spends his days attacking media outlets that publish reports he does not like as "fake news" on Twitter, a group of his allies are trying to raise at least $2 million in an attempt to target and smear reporters from The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, BuzzFeed News and HuffPost ahead of the 2020 election cycle, Axios reports.

The group believes that their findings will be picked up and distributed by "friendly media outlets" like Breitbart, according to the report.
