Democrats React to Tom Steyer’s Never-Ending Campaign to Impeach Trump

Tom Steyer, the billionaire investor-turned-Democratic-megadonor, has spent tens of millions of dollars on an ‘impeach Trump’ campaign, without articulating a clear reason why Trump should be impeached and at the cost of up to $7 per impeachment signature.

President Trump has already made his thoughts on the effort clear, with an October 2017 tweet:

But how do Democrats, some of who want to impeach Trump, feel about Steyer’s campaign?

It may surprise NTK Network readers, but many Democrats are unhappy.

The New York Times covered the impeachment campaign on Tuesday in a story titled: “A Billionaire Keeps Pushing to Impeach Trump. Democrats Are Rattled.”

Here are the takeaways from some Democrats the Times interviewed:

  • Mary Barzee Flores, a Democratic candidate in Miami, Florida: “there’s a basis” for impeachment, but “[t]here are other issues that are [more] pressing.”
  • Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-PA): “I just don’t see how the ads achieve anything.”
  • Ex-Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-CA): “You can’t have a conversation about impeachment until you take the House back, and so this is a little bit like somebody who’s jumped ahead.”

Those are brutal reviews from Steyer’s ideological colleagues. How much money will Steyer pour into his unpopular campaign? Only time, and Steyer’s bottomless wallet, will tell.
