Trump Campaign, RNC Raise $5 Million Within 24 Hours of Impeachment Announcement
Donations flood in following Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s formal announcement
President Donald Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee announced Wednesday that they raked in a whopping $5 million in donations within 24 hours of the Democrats announcing they were launching impeachment proceedings against their 2020 rival.
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) made the formal announcement of an impeachment inquiry on Tuesday.
Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale announced the huge fundraising win on Twitter, saying:
“In the 24 hours since news of Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment announcement, @realDonaldTrump’s campaign & @GOP have BLOWN OUT fundraising!”
“$5 Million combined in 24 hrs. Donors in all 50 states Huge groundswell of support leading to Trump landslide in 2020!” he added.

According to Breitbart, the news comes prior to a Manhattan fundraiser slated for Wednesday evening, which is expected to result in $5 million more for Trump’s reelection campaign.
RNC chief of staff Richard Walters confirmed that the Trump campaign and GOP have raised $30 million in the last week thanks to “Hollywood extremists and the continued witch hunt being led by deranged Dems in the House”:

Last week, the RNC announced “a record $23.5 million [raised] in August” as well as “$53.8 million cash on hand,” as Breitbart News reported.
The spike in fundraising follows the Democrat Party’s heavy push for impeachment, which remains widely unpopular among American voters, as recent polls indicate.
Pelosi announced the formal impeachment inquiry Tuesday after months of stiff-arming the efforts, telling Democrats in a caucus-wide call last month that the public “isn’t there” yet on impeachment.
Nonetheless, the speaker ultimately succumbed to demands, using the whistleblower complaint as a catalyst for the inquiry.
The transcript detailing Trump’s conversation with the Ukranian president, released Wednesday, showed no quid-pro-quo and no legitimate grounds for impeachment, as several Republican lawmakers pointed out.
“Since the day President Trump was elected, congressional Democrats have been working to find any reason under the sun to impeach the president and undo the results of the last election,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said in a statement Wednesday.
“First, it was Mueller, then the Mueller report found no collusion,” he pointed out.
"Now it’s Ukraine. Next month, it will be something else."
