Impeachment wasn’t just good for Trump’s poll numbers, but it was also good for his re-election bank account:
FOX NEWS – President Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican Party brought in more than $60 million in January, amid the impeachment battle on Capitol Hill.
The Trump campaign, its authorized fundraising committees (Trump Victory 2020 and Trump Make America Great Again Committee) and the Republican National Committee reported Thursday that they raised $60.6 million combined in January, with more than $200 million cash on hand.
“The Democrats’ shameful impeachment hoax and dumpster fire primary process have only contributed to this record-breaking financial support for President Trump’s re-election,” Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement Thursday.
“With President Trump’s accomplishments, our massive data and ground operations, and our strong fundraising numbers, this campaign is going to be unstoppable in 2020,” he added.
Since the beginning of 2019, the Trump campaign, RNC and joint-fundraising committees have raked in a stunning $525 million. And since impeachment began in September, the four entities gained over 1 million new digital and direct-mail donors.
“The more Democrats smear President Trump, the more enthusiasm we see for him and his many accomplishments,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “We already have 500,000 volunteers trained and activated, and this record-breaking support is helping us grow our grassroots army even more.”
To put that 60 million in perspective, here’s how much the Trump campaign and RNC raised in the 3rd quarter of 2019:

Just under half of a 3 month haul in one month. Maybe next time Democrats will think twice before they try to impeach the president on bogus charges.
