Pablo Escobar’s brother claims he raised more than $10 million to impeach Trump in just 10 hours before GoFundMe pulled the plug on his campaign
- Roberto ‘El Osito’ Escobar, the brother of the dead drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar, claims his fundraising page to impeach Trump raised more than $10 million
- The crowdfunding website GoFundMe pulled the page on Tuesday over questions it had about the campaign
- Roberto Escobar claims the ‘dirty secrets’ he has on Donald Trump led to GoFundMe censoring the page
- Escobar Inc. is continuing its campaign via its own website offering the sale of its very own cryptocurrency as a form of donation
The older brother of the late drug kingpin Pablo Escobar alleges his campaign to impeach President Trump was shut down by GoFundMe after raising millions of dollars.
Roberto Escobar’s ByeByeTrump GoFundMe campaign, which claims to have dirt on the President, raised more than $10 million in just 10 hours before the crowdfunding service stopped it to investigate, according to TMZ.
TMZ reports that GoFundMe suspended the page on Tuesday asking for more information and that the Escobars did say they responded to the company. The site, however, remains down for the time being.
Roberto, nicknamed El Osito, and Escobar Inc., the official holding company for the Escobar family, were looking to raise $50 million to pay for ‘intelligence research, lobby firms and lawyers’ that would lead to Trump’s impeachment.

The Impeach Trump Fund run by Escobar Inc. presses on with requests for donors to raise money to impeach President Trump
A promotional image for the now-defunct campaign claimed that the Escobar family holds ‘dirty secrets of President Trump, his family and associates.’
In an earlier story, TMZ reported that El Osito thinks Special Counsel Robert Mueller might be interested in those ‘dirty secrets’ that would somehow tie Trump to the Escobar drug business.
Escobar believes it is for this reason that President Trump and the US government was somehow behind the GoFundMe shutdown.
Despite the alleged interference into their plans to raise money to impeach Donald Trump, Escobar Inc. continues to raise money on its Impeach Trump Fund website that includes an option to buy an ESCOBAR token cryptocurrency.
The ESCOBAR token is advertised on the Impeach Trump Fund website as a way for people to donate by purchasing the cryptocurrency
‘ESCOBAR token is the future of stablecoins, having a big name behind itself and the strong leadership of Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria, older brother of infamous Pablo Escobar,’ the website boasts.
‘The token came to existence as a tool to raise money for the Impeach Trump Fund cause, where a GoFundMe fundraiser was shut down and censored,’ the Escobar cryptocurrency page also claims. ‘Thanks to cryptocurrencies, there are no boundaries to be censored!’
Pablo Escobar, the man constantly being referenced in the campaign, is the subject of multiple books, TV shows and films and was killed during a shootout with Colombian National Police in December of 1993.
