On Friday morning, President Donald Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale revealed just how much money President Trump’s campaign was able to pull in after the Democrat controlled House of Representatives voted in favor of setting the grounds for the impeachment inquiry into the President.
«Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment resolution day turned into a MASSIVE fundraising day for @realDonaldTrump,» Parscale said. He then revealed that the campaign was able to raise $3 million in one day which brought their total online donations for October to $19 million.
Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment resolution day turned into a MASSIVE fundraising day for @realDonaldTrump.
✅ $3 MILLION raised online alone in one day.
✅ That makes $19 MILLION in October online alone!
Impeachment sham is backfiring already!

The vote did indeed backfire considering Pelosi was unable to gain bipartisan support which shows how strong Republicans are standing with President Trump. Not a single Republican voted in favor of the impeachment inquiry and even a couple Democrats voted against it.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Democratic Reps. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey and Colin Peterson of Minnesota voted against the resolution, while Independent Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan supported the measure.
Trump’s campaign often uses flashpoint news events to raise money. The campaign sold 55,000 packs of plastic straws, netting over $823,000 in sales, whereas campaign officials sold about $50,000 worth of fine point markers, campaign communication director Tim Murtaugh told reporters in September.
If the impeachment proceedings were to make it to the Senate, 67 senators would have to vote in favor of impeachment. With a majority Republican senate, this is very unlikely.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham recently spoke out on the ongoing impeachment inquiry, stating that not a single Republican in the Senate would vote to impeach the President.
“You have to accept that President Trump is president,” Graham said on Tuesday during an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News.
“That’s the problem. They don’t accept that President Trump won the election, and America hates a sore loser as much as any country on the planet. This is an unfair process being driven by sore losers and there is not one vote in the United States Senate to impeach President Trump based on this phone call because he did nothing wrong,” he added.
Graham quickly corrected himself saying that not a single vote “among Republicans” would vote for impeachment in the Senate.
On Tuesday morning Republican Rep. Jim Jordan sang a similar tune as Graham, stating that he expects Republicans to stick together against the bogus impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
On Monday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that she would be holding a House vote to formally begin the impeachment inquiry. Jordan noted that this announcement by Pelosi means nothing and that he firmly believes that all House Republicans will vote against Pelosi’s resolution.
“Frankly, even if they tried to change something to give a little bit of Due Process, we are all still going to vote against this because this is such a sham and been such a sham from the beginning,” Jordan said. “So, yeah, I don’t think — and you can’t undo what they have already done. We have had these eight depositions now. They have been leaking selective parts of it. Haven’t been following any type of basic Due Process. So, you can’t undo what they have done.”
“I think the reason she is going to have this vote because the American people understand it is sham,” Jordan added while talking about Pelosi. “They understand it isn’t fair.”
“So I think the speaker is going to try to dress it up a little bit. Put a little lipstick on the pig as they say and have this vote on Thursday,” Jordan continued. “It’s not going to change anything. I think you will see every single Republican vote against it.”
