The Democrats’ decision to formally begin an impeachment inquiry against President Trump is already monumentally backfiring, only resulting in rallying Trump’s supporters into action.
Trump’s base has been energized by the continuation of the ‘witch hunt’ against the President, as it immediately turned out that the basis for the impeachment hearings was a ‘whistleblower’ with an axe to grind against Trump.
Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale reported that the result has been in influx of donations to the campaign to the tune of $5 million in one day
Parscale called it a “Huge groundswell of support,” and noted that donations came in from all over the country.
✅$5 Million combined in 24 hrs
✅Donors in all 50 states
Huge groundswell of support leading to Trump landslide in 2020!

The impeachment move collapsed into ridiculousness Wednesday when it emerged that the so called whistleblower, who alleged that Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, was found by the intelligence community Inspector General to have ‘political bias’ and was in favor of a ‘rival candidate’ for US president.
In addition, The Federalist notes that the whistleblower’s attorney Andrew Bakaj “interned for [Chuck] Schumer in the spring of 2001 and for [Hillary] Clinton in the fall of the same year.”

When the White House released the transcript of Trump’s call to the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, it proved that there was no pressuring whatsoever, and Zelensky himself said during a Wednesday press conference that “nobody pushed me.”
After braying for the release of the transcript for 24 hours, Democrats suddenly lost interest in it when Trump released it, with Pelosi even admitting she hasn’t even read it, but still damning the President over the call with Zelensky.
In addition, Democrats actually did the exact same thing they are now trying to impeach Trump for when they wrote to the Ukrainian government last year urging them to continue investigations into the fantasy collusion with Russia.
A complete clown show.

Where were you when 'Muh Russia' became 'Muh Ukraine' without a single trace of transitional irony in the interim?
