Former Obama adviser David Axelrod refuted Tom Steyer’s call for impeachment on CNN on Monday night. Axelrod warned the liberal billionaire against impeaching Trump before all the facts are revealed.

Steyer argued that “over 50 constitutional scholars” analyzed his case for impeachment and found the constitutional mechanism was warranted. “They all said yes [to impeachment]. It’s a lay-down hand,” he claimed.

Axelrod told Steyer to wait for the results of the Mueller investigation. “Mr. Mueller hasn’t even named the president as a target yet,” he said to Steyer. “[Impeachment] could happen, but we ought to give the American people that it’s done on the basis of facts and on the basis of law.”

The former Obama adviser criticized Steyer’s use of constitutional scholars, calling for the billionaire to wait for the actual experts in the case to reveal their results.

Steyer was unmoved. “The American people and the American democracy are at great risk while we wait,” he claimed.

Axelrod shot back that Steyer’s politicization of impeachment threatened democracy as well.
