President Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican Party have reportedly raised $13 million since Nancy Pelosi announced her official impeachment push earlier this week.

President Trump’s reelection campaign and the GOP have raised $13 million since Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Tuesday that House Democrats would launch a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump amid scrutiny over his interactions with Ukraine,” reports The Hill.

“A Trump campaign official confirmed the figure to The Hill, saying it represented funds raised by the campaign as well as the Republican National Committee (RNC),” adds the website.

“A BIG thank you to @SpeakerPelosi and the Democrats – in the last 48 hours we have raised $8.5 million dollars in small dollar donations. People are sick of your nonsense but please keep it up — you are handing @realDonaldTrump the win in 2020!” posted Eric Trump on social media.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi officially endorsed an impeachment inquiry into President Trump Tuesday evening; announcing her plan after days of media speculation regarding the Commander-in-Chief’s private conversation with the leader of Ukraine.

“I am currently at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine,” posted Trump on Twitter. “You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call. No pressure and, unlike Joe Biden and his son, NO quid pro quo! This is nothing more than a continuation of the Greatest and most Destructive Witch Hunt of all time!”

“The decision sets up an election season clash between Trump and Congress that seems certain to exacerbate the nation’s fierce partisan divides and inject deep uncertainty into the 2020 presidential contest. The probe is expected to focus in part on reports that Trump pressed Ukraine’s president to help investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden,” reports the Associated Press.
