Donald Trump and his team have made a play to turn the impeachment inquiry in their favor by using it as a springboard for Republican Party fundraising. The Trump Make America Great Again Committee sent out an email that announced the establishment of the GOP's "Official Impeachment Defense Task Force." However, it's unclear if this is an official body or a less formal group of individuals. The Daily Beast reported the email backed up Trump's claims of the impeachment inquiry being little more than a "witch hunt."
"This is only the beginning of yet ANOTHER nasty Witch Hunt against me, and we need to fight back BIGGER and STRONGER than ever before."
"I'VE DONE NOTHING WRONG. TRUST ME, YOU'LL SEE THE TRANSCRIPT."
The U.S. representative for Alabama's 1st congressional district, Bradly Byrne, is among many Republicans accusing Democrats of launching the impeachment inquiry due to their inability to win at the ballot box, an accusation that was fueled by a Nancy Pelosi interview where she said that it is "absolutely essential" that Trump not get re-elected.
