Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik – the same congresswoman who was repeatedly silenced by Adam Schiff during the impeachment hearings when she tried to ask questions and who has since been praised by President Trump himself – has begun taking donations to aid her in her fight against “Schifty Schiff” what she has aptly coined his “Regime of Secrecy.”
Stefanik talked to Sean Hannity Thursday night about how she and other Republicans have been treated by Schiff and Democrats for trying to speak truth instead of the nonsense they spout off.
She asked for supporters to give her donations, explaining,
“Because I’ve been such an outspoken advocate for the facts, I have been attacked by the Hollywood Left, who have dumped millions into supporting my far-left Democratic opponent, which is why I need the American people to step up, donate at fightschiff.com to help me speak for the American people in my district.”
And, it certainly seems like the American people are aligned with her in her goal!
Only 2 hours after her appearance on Hannity, $500K was raised to fight Schiff!
Check it out:
250K - half of the money Stefanik has raised - was raised in only 15 minutes after her appearance on Hannity.
The rest came in less than 2 hours later!
Watch Rep. Stefanik's appearance on Hannity following the impeachment hearings here to listen to what she has to say about Schiff, and how she wants to fight back:
The Washington Examiner had the following to say about the whopping $250K begin raised in 15 minutes:
Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik raised more than a quarter-million dollars in the short time after soliciting donations during her appearance on Sean Hannity's show.
Stefanik, who has gained name recognition during the House Intelligence Committee's public hearings on impeachment, appeared on Hannity Thursday night and she asked for her supporters to donate to her.
She began by reiterating that the "Democrats' case for impeachment is crumbling," but then pivoted, "Because I’ve been such an outspoken advocate for the facts, I have been attacked by the Hollywood Left, who have dumped millions into supporting my far-left Democratic opponent, which is why I need the American people to step up, donate at fightschiff.com to help me speak for the American people in my district."
Breitbart has more on the $500K Stefanik has raised from Americans who want to fight against Schiff's censorship of Republicans in Congress:
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) is using her ceaseless battle against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) and his impeachment efforts to her advantage, raising over $500,000 for her congressional campaign in less than two hours, she announced on Friday.
Stefanik has been a predominant GOP figure in recent weeks, particularly due to her significant role on the House Intelligence Committee, which held a series of public impeachment trials over the last two weeks. Stefanik has used her time during the hearings to demonstrate the partisan nature of the inquiry and question Schiff’s methods.
During last week’s hearing, Stefanik blasted Schiff’s newfound devotion to protecting the so-called “whistleblower,” using her time to read excerpts of reports detailing his previous comments in order to demonstrate the “duplicity and just the abuse of power of that we are continuing to see.”
We want to make sure whistleblowers are able to come forward, but in this case, the fact that we are getting criticized by Chairman Adam Schiff for statements that he himself had made early on in this process shows the duplicity and just the abuse of power of that we are continuing to see.
The backlash seems to be invigorating her base, according to her latest announcement. On Thursday, Stefanik asked her Twitter followers to join her in the “fight for truth and transparency at FightSchiff.com,” which takes users to a page to donate to her congressional campaign.

Upstate New York Rep. Elise Stefanik says she raised $500,000 for her election campaign in less than two hours Thursday night after appearing on Sean Hannity’s TV show on Fox News.
Hannity praised Stefanik’s performance in the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment hearings this week, calling her “a new star” in the Republican Party.
President Donald Trump, who first declared Stefanik a GOP rising star over the weekend, repeated that sentiment Friday morning in an appearance on Fox and Friends.
“I’ll tell you what, this young woman from Upstate New York, she has become a star,” Trump said in a live phone interview with the show.
“She has become a star, her mannerism, her way of talking…it’s just the whole thing,” Trump said of Stefanik. “She was fantastic during the hearings.”
