Democrats have launched an “Impeachment Task Force,” so the Republican National Committee (RNC) has answered back with the creation of an “Impeachment Defense Task Force.”

“Right now, out-of-touch Democrats are ignoring the will of their voters to pursue a baseless, unpopular impeachment witch hunt. The Democrats refuse to accept the results of the 2016 election and are on a never-ending fishing expedition to tear down President Trump,” the RNC says on a new website, StopTheMadness.gop. “We need your help in standing up to these members of Congress across the nation to stop the madness! Tell them to end the impeachment inquiry and get back to work for the American people.”

The site goes on to say:

Democrats have proven, yet again, they have no problem ignoring the will of the American people and THE TRUTH. Contrary to the lies Democrats are spreading, there was:


“The Democrats’ constant personal attacks, vicious lies, and now these baseless impeachment attacks, have never had anything to do with President Trump,” the site says. “Their goal has always been to silence you. They want to steal you voice and you vote. The president needs you on his side in this fight. Our country is at stake.”

“Stand with President Trump and join the Official Impeachment Defense Task Force NOW,” the site says, urging visitors to sign up and volunteer to knock on doors and make phone calls.

The new effort is a response to the creation of the “Impeachment Task Force” by a group called The Democratic Coalition.

“The task force, designed to lead rapid response to Trump during the impeachment inquiry, has confirmed members including comedian Rosie O’Donnell; actors Tom Arnold, Ron Perlman and George Takei; and actresses Debra Messing and Alyssa Milano, The Democratic Coalition’s co-founder Scott Dworkin told Newsweek. The task force launched a fundraising effort and basic plan on Thursday. The group has already started meeting and is set to go live with its website next week,” Newsweek wrote.

“As its logo, the task force is using a doctored presidential seal … that was mysteriously projected behind Trump as he spoke at the conservative group Turning Point USA’s student summit in July. The altered seal featured a bird similar to the one on the Russian coat of arms with two heads, and clasped golf clubs instead of 13 arrows in one talon, and cash instead of an olive branch in the other talon,” reported Newsweek.

Trump has repeatedly complained that the mainstream media is not providing the full story on the impeachment inquiry Democrats have launched.

“The Media is ‘Fixed’ and Corrupt. It bears no relationship to the truth. The @nytimes & @washingtonpost are pure fiction. Totally dishonest reporting!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

“We are simultaneously fighting the Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party. Always tough to beat the “Press,” but people are beginning to see how totally CORRUPT they are, and it makes our job a whole lot easier!” Trump wrote on Thursday.
