On August 7, 2019, the bustatroll.org website published an article positing that Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris had proclaimed that after President Donald Trump is impeached, "we'll be coming for [his supporters] next":

Kamala Harris:’After We Impeach, We Round Up The Trump Supporters’

Shocking words were heard at a Democrat fundraiser for criminal justice reform yesterday from presidential hopeful, Kamala Harris ...

[Trump’s] just bad and we will impeach! There is so much evidence against this guy, the mind boggles.

And once he’s gone and we have regained our rightful place in the White House, look out if you supported him and endorsed his actions, because we’ll be coming for you next. You will feel the vengeance of a nation. No stone will be left unturned as we seek you out in every corner of this great nation. For it is you who have betrayed us.
