Well Known Liberal Activist Says Trump Has Met Conditions for Impeachment

Well Known Liberal Activist Says Trump Has Met Conditions for Impeachment

Speaking on a recent edition of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” well-known liberal activist and billionaire hedge fund manager, Tom Steyer, said that he believes that President Donald Trump has already “met the grounds for impeachment.”

When asked by host Chuck Todd, “Where would you prioritize impeachment right now for the new Democratic House?,” Steyer replied; “I think there’s no question that this president has both met the grounds for impeachment and that it’s urgent to get him out of office…”

This is not the first time that Steyer has used the “I” word, in fact, he has been spearheading a campaign advocating for the impeachment of President Trump since long before the midterm elections. Back in August, speaking to Variety, Steyer said, “If candidates (then running for the midterm elections) are not for impeachment, they should explain what is their solution to the lawlessness and recklessness of this president?”

He went on in that interview to say, “The question should be, and I would pose it, what are we waiting for? How much information do you need? If the level of corruption isn’t too much for you, how many laws does he have to break before you decide he has to go?”

While the mainstream Democratic Party did not run on impeachment as Steyer suggested, which, given their resounding success in recapturing the House, was probably a good move, Steyer probably now feels emboldened to renew his quest for impeachment, given those results.

Who Is Tom Steyer?

Tom Steyer is a wealthy billionaire who is one of the Democratic Party’s largest donors. In the past, Nancy Pelosi has described him as a “friend” and “neighbor.” Steyer amassed his fortune as a hedge-fund manager and created the “Need to Impeach” campaign as an offshoot of his group, NextGen America, which was best known for climate change advocacy.

Steyer has poured millions into the “Need to Impeach” campaign and has collected 5.5 million signatures in the effort to impeach Trump. Prior to the midterms, he announced that he was spending an additional $10 million on a Need to Vote campaign to mobilize the electorate, drawing on the petition list to organize and make direct content.

But for the most part, Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic leadership have rejected Steyer’s effort, believing that calls for Trump’s head, will just galvanize a Republican response. Back in July, Pelosi said that impeachment was “off the table” if Democrats win back the House and that it would be a “gift” to Republicans. It turned out her strategy was correct as Democrats won back over 30 seats in the House in the midterms.

However, Pelosi did place a caveat on that promise to the GOP. She had said, “unless new information comes to light.” Now that the Democrats have won the House, and with the impending Mueller Report, and recent bombshells that revealed possible collusion between Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, and Julian Assange, it remains to be seen if impeachment may indeed return to the agenda when the new Congress is seated in January.

      Actually this entire site is moronic and hate filled, not sure why I am receiving this. Maybe the owners are too stupid to see which groups I support, so conservative groups are by far the dimwits. Go back and make up more crap and stop taking responsibility

      Calling Trump “a DimWit idiot with more money than sense” is actually helping him succeed.

      Trump is a con-artist, far smarter and more successful than Charles Ponzi who when exposed gave coffee and donuts to the crowd in line and let new customers to join the line after closing, planned for with persistently slow lines.

      When one calls Quack Trump a con-artist or a thief he has no response. The high he gives his followers is like Meth. (Mental Meth) he pretends to believe no Global Warming, while people not noting the prosperity and full employment he sponsors is also spreading Calcutta type smog. Russia-gate is blocking not helping possible future conviction. Calling and believing him ignorant is also helping him succeed. PS he turned on his Haitian-America supporters by accusing them of spreading aids demanding they self-deport, and those wanting to fill insurance copay drugs in Canada, and will betray any other followers if the opportunity arises. 14 Republicans joining Democrats in standing up against Saudi Arabia is the first bit of good news so far.

    Steyer again proves that being wealthy does not make you smart.The fact that some media think what Steyer thinks is newsworthy and has value beyond that of the average or common man does not speak well of them.

    I happy to see ignorant Tom Steyer waste all his money to impeach Trump. Soon he will be a millionaire instead of a billionaire! But can he answer one question? What law has this lawless President broken? You can’t impeach him just because you don’t like him. We the people elected him!

    Tom Steyer appears to be an idiot and a traitor. Money doesn’t make you credible shit for brains. It only makes you rich. Tell me how you have made our country a better place or served to protect our Constitution from the rest of the morons like you.

    What I find interesting is the same people who hate Trump will gladly be taking advantage of his tax cuts.
