President Donald Trump is tapping into his vast fundraising machinery and resources to reward his loyal acolytes who have stood by him on impeachment.

According to Politico, Trump has been naming his loyal foot soldiers in email blasts to supporters, asking for contributions. He’s also hosting fundraising events, like an upcoming one for Sen. David Perdue (R-GA).

Less pliant senators, like Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), have been omitted from the cash hauls.

Trump has reportedly already accumulated more than $300 million this year.
