Republican groups report increases in fundraising since the start of the impeachment process, with the Republican National Committee gaining over half a million new donors since the start of impeachment.

As the House Judiciary Committee adopted articles of impeachment earlier in December, the Trump campaign and the RNC received over $10 million in small donations, Axios reported. Republicans raised $15 million during the 72 hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced in September that the impeachment inquiry would begin.
A quarter of those who register at Trump rallies are either self-described Democrats or independents, an official told Axios, adding that about a quarter of Trump rally registrants are low-propensity voters.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee told Axios it had no impeachment-related donor or financial figures to share, though a DNC official said the Democratic Party’s ads related to impeachment are 70% more effective than average Democratic ads.
Impeachment might be aiding some Democrats with fundraising. Democratic challenger to Republican California Rep. Devin Nunes, Phil Arballo, raised over $500,000 in the month since the impeachment hearings began Nov. 13. (RELATED: Flashback: Rashida Tlaib Campaigned On Impeachment In 2018)
Meanwhile, the National Democratic Training Committee reported to Axios that it has raised $651,802 during the past month and that the NDTC is channeling effective criticisms of Nunes, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.
