At this late stage in the game, the liberal left has no choice but to hang their hat on this “formal impeachment inquiry”, no matter how shortsighted the entire debacle may be.
The left has spent far too long badgering House Speaker Nancy Pelosi into announcing such a maneuver that there is no room for disagreement any longer. Even Tulsi Gabbard, House Rep. from Hawaii, was forced to change her tune on impeachment in order to remain relevant in the 2020 race.
But the long-awaited move is backfiring, big time, as the republicans circle the wagons and pad their coffers.
President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee will report raising $125 million in the third quarter of the year, a presidential fundraising record.
The pair told The Associated Press that it has raised more than $308 million in 2019 and has more than $156 million in the bank. Republicans aim to use the fundraising haul to fight off Democrats’ impeachment effort.
Former President Barack Obama and the DNC raised just over $70 million in the third quarter of 2011 and had $100 million less in the bank at the equivalent point in the race.
“President Trump has built a juggernaut of a campaign, raising record amounts of money at a record pace,” said Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale.
There was no hiding what caused such an outpouring of cash.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel credited Democratic attacks on Trump for motivating supporters to donate in record numbers.
“We are investing millions on the airwaves and on the ground to hold House Democrats accountable, highlight their obstruction, and take back the House and reelect President Trump in 2020,” she said.
Democrats were warned several times by Pelosi that this impeachment could come back to haunt them come 2020, as it is almost certain to fail in the Republican-controlled Senate.
This is the proof that Pelosi was correct.
