The National Republican Congressional Committee sent out a fundraising email Wednesday using the potential impeachment of President Donald Trump as motivation to encourage people to donate to the party.
According to Politico, the NRCC email read as follows:
"BREAKING. House Democrats call for President Trump's impeachment. We MUST protect our president. DEFEND THE PRESIDENT.
"Fellow Conservative — Democrats want President Trump impeached — including the DNC Deputy Chair! If Democrats win the House their #1 priority would be to impeach our president. We must protect the House at ALL costs, Fellow Conservative."
The email then asked for donations before saying this at the end: "Thanks, Trump Majority HQ."
Trump fired FBI director James Comey Tuesday, a decision that has left both Democrats and Republicans wondering if it had to do with the FBI's continued examination of claims that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
Many Democrats have made comparisons to former President Richard Nixon, who was criticized for firing the special prosecutor who was investigating the Watergate break-in.
Trump said earlier Wednesday he fired Comey for "not doing a good job." One report, however, said Trump handed Comey his walking papers over a lack of loyalty and Comey's insistence that the Russia investigation press forward.
