Trump’s ‘Grievance Machine’ Hauls in $8.5 Million

$8.5 million

Politico: “Donald Trump’s campaign aides expected months ago that Democrats would try to impeach the president — and he needed a way to exploit it. So this summer, Trump 2020 officials spliced news clips of Democrats discussing impeachment into a 90-second video montage, punctuated by the president imploring supporters to help him ‘stop this nonsense.’ … Aides quietly filed the spot away until last week, when it was released it as part of an online counteroffensive to the impeachment push that brought in 50,000-plus new donors and raked in $8.5 million in two days — the campaign’s biggest digital haul since its June launch.”

Support for Impeachment Growing

27%

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds 27% of Americans say there’s enough evidence to begin impeachment hearings into President Trump now — up 10 points from last month. Another 24% think Congress should continue investigating to see if there’s enough evidence to hold impeachment hearings in the future, which is down eight points. And 48% believe that Congress should not hold impeachment hearings and that Trump should finish out his term as president — unchanged from a month ago.
