Veterans for Bernie Sanders, a group with over 50,000 likes, took to its Facebook page to encouraged its followers to watch and share the film.
Reaction to the Clinton Cash movie poured in swiftly. Viewers from multiple social media platforms praised the film and urged their followers to watch it.
Many Facebook users expressed a mixture of fury and disbelief at the facts laid out in the 105-minute film.
Here’s what committed Sanders supporters had to say:
“Clinton Cash feature documentary” was trending on Facebook at the time of publication as reaction to the film continued to accelerate on the platform on Saturday.
One commenter said Clinton Cash “shows the cesspool of corruption that the Clinton Foundation is.”
Another commenter fumed, “Dear God. I thought I was done being shocked by the Clinton darkness. Thank you. Keep speaking out. Please.”
After its global premiere, reaction to Clinton Cash had skyrocketed on Twitter.

Clinton Cash exposes the disturbing pattern of record-high speaking fees to Bill Clinton and donations to the Clinton Foundation from foreign contributors, which conspicuously coincided with favors for those closest to the Clintons and their foundation donors while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State.
The Clinton Cash movie will air again on Sunday, July 24 at 2:00 pm (EST) and again at 8:00 pm (EST).
