President Trump's 2020 campaign and the RNC pulled in a combined $105 million fundraising haul during 2019's second quarter, reports the New York Times.

Why it matters: The huge amount is "a testament to the more professional operation that [Trump's] campaign has been running" for this cycle, writes the Times, which notes that the president used personal money to supplement his 2016 campaign.

By the numbers:

  • Trump and his committees brought in $54 million, while the RNC raised $51 million, though Trump's campaign declined to say the total number of individual donors who contributed.
  • Trump's campaign received more online donations during the second quarter of 2019 than it did in the first half of 2018.

The big picture: To put Trump's fundraising in context, during 2011's second quarter, President Obama's re-election campaign raised $47 million and the DNC brought in $38 million.

  • The only 2020 Democrat to release second-quarter fundraising totals so far is Pete Buttigieg, whose campaign said he pulled in $24.8 million, a staggering sum for a candidate who was barely known at the beginning of the cycle.

What's next: The FEC will disclose all presidential candidates' second-quarter fundraising by its July 15 deadline.

Grand jury proceedings in the case of Breonna Taylor, an unarmed Black woman fatally shot by police, will be released on Wednesday, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron confirmed to news outlets.

Driving the news: Cameron's announcement late Monday came hours after a judge granted an unnamed juror's court motion seeking the release of last week's transcripts and related recordings.

Bob Woodward: "I was not going to hide" my opinion on Trump

Bob Woodward didn't want to join Senate Republicans in privately condemning President Trump but declining to do so publicly, he told Jonathan Swan in an interview for "Axios on HBO."

Why it matters: Woodward has covered 9 presidents, but Trump is the first that Woodward explicitly described as "the wrong man for the job."
