President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale was confident the partisan effort to remove a duly-elected president will only aid in Trump’s reelection, and fundraising following Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing a formal impeachment inquiry — whatever that is — is proving him right.
Parscale issued a release following the speaker’s news conference saying Democrats “can’t beat President Trump on his policies or stellar record of accomplishments, so they’re trying to turn a Joe Biden scandal into a Trump problem.”
“The misguided Democratic impeachment strategy is meant to appease their rabid, extreme, leftist base, but will only serve to embolden and energize President Trump’s supporters and create a landslide victory for the president.”
And that “energy” showed up in cash, as in $5 million, as Parscale shared online the campaign haul in the 24 hours period following Pelosi’s announcement, along with the GOP’s take.
Parscale tweeted: “In the 24 hours since news of Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment announcement, [Trump’s] campaign & [GOP] have BLOWN OUT fundraising! ✅$5 Million combined in 24 hrs ✅Donors in all 50 states Huge groundswell of support leading to Trump landslide in 2020!”
To avoid any confusion, this is SMALL DOLLAR donations only. More to come…

He said in a second tweet that the donations are coming from the folks — the grassroots.
“To avoid any confusion, this is SMALL DOLLAR donations only. More to come…,” Parscale added.
Trump’s campaign sent out a fundraising email Wednesday calling the impeachment inquiry a “witch hunt” and attacking Democrats for trying to “rip the power from the people.”
“This is just another smear job and a pathetic attempt by Democrats to rip the power from the people,” the email reportedly stated. “I’VE DONE NOTHING WRONG. TRUST ME, YOU SAW THE TRANSCRIPT.”
Meanwhile, Wall Street is not buying the head-fake from Pelosi and the Democratic Party — their announcement came after the market closed on Tuesday.
The Dow surged Wednesday 163 points to close at 26970.71, as many expected to see it tank.
Wednesday’s headline from CNBC says it all, “Wall Street believes Trump is safe but worries impeachment inquiry could hinder trade deals.”
NBC’s business network reported, “Investors shouldn’t worry about what a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump could mean for his current term or even his reelection chances, Wall Street investment banks advised clients.”
The article goes on to suggest all “legislating” is done until after the 2020 election and that important issues will not be addressed, with a potential U.S.-China trade deal at the top of the list of possible casualties.
The only question being who receives the blame for this, Democrats or the president?
More good news for Trump was seen in the release Wednesday of a new Rasmussen Reports poll showing the president leading Joe Biden by 4 points in a head-to-head matchup, 47 percent to 43 percent.
The survey showed 65% of Likely U.S. Voters think Biden is likely to be the Democrats’ presidential candidate next year.
Biden has been the front-runner all along, leading by double digits in early polls, but a new Quinnipiac University poll out Wednesday has Sen. Elizabeth Warren leading the 2020 Democratic field, believe it or not.
Of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents polled, 27% favor Warren, while 25% prefer Biden.
Here’s a quick sampling of some of the non-toxic responses to Parscale’s good news from Twitter:
We love our President!
