President Trump escalated his war-of-words with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi over the weekend; saying the top Democrat “must be impeached” for defending Rep. Adam Schiff’s botched Ukraine hearings.
“Nancy Pelosi knew of all of the many Shifty Adam Schiff lies and massive frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American people, in the form of a fraudulent speech knowingly delivered as a ruthless con, and the illegal meetings with a highly partisan ‘Whistleblower’ & lawyer… This makes Nervous Nancy every bit as guilty as Liddle’ Adam Schiff for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and even Treason. I guess that means that they, along with all of those that evilly ‘Colluded’ with them, must all be immediately Impeached!” posted Trump on Twitter.

President Trump’s approval rating popped to its highest level this year; hitting 49% in a Hill-Harris poll just days after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi officially endorsed an impeachment inquiry against the Commander-in-Chief.
“Despite the launch of impeachment proceedings, the president saw a 2-point increase from a poll a month ago, according to the new Hill-HarrisX survey released on Wednesday and taken after the impeachment inquiry was begun,” reports the NY Post. “That makes him just 2 points shy of his highest-ever approval rating of 51 percent last August.”
President Trump’s re-election campaign and the RNC raised more than $125 million dollars in the 3rd quarter of 2019; raising new questions over Nancy Pelosi’s recent impeachment push and its impact on the 2020 election.
“Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale announced the three-month total in a tweet Tuesday afternoon. The pro-Trump groups, which also include his joint fundraising entities with the GOP, have raised more than $308 million in total in 2019, and boast more than $156 million cash on hand,” reports CNBC.
“Huge fundraising haul this quarter. The @gop and @realDonaldTrump campaign brought in 125 million!!!@GOPChairwoman has been killing it. She’s a great partner as we go on to win 4 more years,” posted Parscale.
