(Newser) – Once the dust settled after the release of a whistleblower's report and the testimony of the director of national intelligence on Thursday, more developments surfaced. They included:

  • The nation is divided on the House impeachment inquiry, a new poll shows, with 49% supporting it and 46% opposed. "Democrats in the House have work to do to convince people of the usefulness of their case," a pollster said. But 70% of Americans are following developments, NPR reports, so that breakdown could change quickly.
  • President Trump's reelection campaign said it raised $13 million in the 24 hours after the impeachment inquiry was announced. The total included $5 million from a Wednesday night fundraiser, $3 million from a Thursday breakfast event and $5 million from online donors in every state, the Republican National Committee said. "I need you on my Impeachment Defense Team," one fundraising text message said, per the AP.
