As the House voted to impeach the president, the Trump campaign pulled in $5 million on Wednesday as donors rushed to pad the campaign’s war chest with more money. Impeachment has been good for the Trump campaign — and to Republicans who pulled in a record $20.6 million in the month of November alone.
The haul is the best November fundraising numbers for the party in its history.
“Democrats’ baseless impeachment charade has only served to bolster our base and attract more voters to our cause and the result is another record-breaking fundraising month,” said Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
Since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced a formal impeachment inquiry some three months ago, the RNC has received money from 600,000 new small-dollar donors.
At the time of the inquiry announcement, President Trump’s campaign raked in $1 million in just three hours. And once the impeachment hearings started, the money kept rolling in.
