Trump camp using impeachment in get-out-the vote push

In Nevada, it also hopes to use that message to target Democratic members of the U.S. House.

President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is using a counter-impeachment message in its get-out-the vote efforts in places like Nevada.

The Trump campaign is imploring people to help them with protests, letters to the editor, phone calls, social media posts and on-the-ground door knocking as the Trump campaign has been spreading the message that the impeachment inquiry is a "witch hunt" and "baseless accusation."

In Nevada, it also hopes to use that message to target Democratic members of the U.S. House.
