In an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez dodged questions on Democratic megadonor Tom Steyer’s ad campaign calling for President Trump’s impeachment.

“I’ve been fighting for organizing. We’ve been fighting for making sure that people have access to good jobs. We’ve been fighting for health care,” Perez responded when ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked if he supports Steyer’s efforts.

Pressed further, Perez said that Steyer should not stop his ad campaign.

“Would you like [Steyer] to stop [his ad campaign?” Raddatz asked.

“No. Tom Steyer has a right to do whatever he feels he needs to do,” Perez responded.

The DNC chair then thanked Steyer for his major donations to candidates in Virginia and New Jersey.
