Julian Castro was not bothered by the fact that his brother Jaoquin doxxed his own constituents as Trump supporters.
In fact, he thinks his brother was right to do it.
He said so on MSNBC.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Castro: My Brother Was Right to Expose Donors of Trump’s ‘Campaign of Hate’
Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro on Sunday said he “absolutely” believes his brother, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D., Texas), was right to release the names of San Antonio donors to President Donald Trump’s “campaign of hate.”
Castro appeared on MSNBC’s Kasie DC, where he was asked whether he still believes it was the “right thing” for his brother to tweet out a list of Trump’s donors “at a time of heightened– frankly fear and violence, that this might make these people targets.”
“Oh, absolutely. I’m very proud of my brother and my brother took what is publicly available information that newspapers, other publications regularly do about people who maxed out, made the maximum contribution to President Trump here in San Antonio and he put that forward as he said as a lament to say, ‘wow, just look,'” Castro said.
“I believe that my brother had every right to do that and people should know who was funding that campaign of hate,” Castro continued.
“I believe that’s completely legitimate information and I think one of the reasons that Donald Trump tweeted at my brother is because he must be afraid that people are ashamed they gave to him or something.”
Watch the video:
People are already being harassed because of what Jaoquin Castro did:
This threatening, hateful voicemail was left for a Trump supporter in Texas after @JulianCastro's campaign chairman posted the supporter's personal information online.
Intimidation and threats are exactly what Castro wanted when he posted this target list.

Julian Castro: “I’m very proud of my brother“ for publicizing names of Trump donors
We are living in a very dangerous political environment caused by Democrats.
This rhetoric could get these innocent donors injured or even killed!

Julian Castro’s refusal to disavow this should be disqualifying.
