Facing Impeachment, Trump Helping Loyal GOP Senators for 2020

President Donald Trump is utilizing his huge fundraising network to help several loyal Republican senators facing tough re-election bids next year and whose help he needs as a House impeachment inquiry looms.

Trump's 2020 campaign sent a fundraising email Wednesday calling for donations to be split between the president and three incumbent senators, Politico reports.

They are Sens. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Joni Ernst of Iowa, and Thom Tillis of North Carolina. The Trump campaign has raised more than $300 million this year.

"If we don't post strong fundraising numbers," the email warned, "we won't be able to defend the president from this baseless impeachment WITCH HUNT."

Trump also is appearing at fundraisers for Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., and for the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC tied to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and other party leaders, Politico reports.

Each senator has endorsed the resolution introduced last week by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., that slams the House inquiry and calls for due process for Trump and other protections.

Any House impeachment action would then move to the Senate, which would hold a trial on the lower chamber’s decision.

But President Trump is not supporting Maine Sen. Susan Collins, who is facing several strong Democratic challengers and who has refused to sign the Graham resolution, Politico reports.

He also is not endorsing Sen. Martha McSally of Arizona, who signed the resolution but refuses to use the WinRed online fundraising tool that Trump supports, according to the report.

McSally's campaign declined to comment to Politico, and a Collins spokesperson did not respond.

The Trump campaign's Wednesday appeal brought in "six figures," Mike Reed, a Republican National Committee spokesman, told Politico.

"Our supporters stand totally behind President Trump and are eager to support down-ballot candidates who do the same," he said.
