Steyer Doubles Down on ‘Impeach Trump’ Campaign, Still Can’t Come Up With Reason Why

Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer has spent $20 million on an ‘impeach Trump’ ad campaign that may be more about his own political ambitions than about convincing a Republican Congress to impeach a Republican president.

Steyer’s lack of a current and compelling argument for impeachment was evident on Sunday as he struggled through explaining why Trump’s impeachment is necessary to CNN’s Dana Bash.

“The fact of the matter is this President has performed in a lawless way throughout the campaign and throughout his presidency and he is an urgent threat to the American people,” Steyer told CNN anchor Dana Bash on Sunday morning’s “State of the Union.” “So to sit here and wait doing absolutely nothing is the wrong thing to do. The American people want this man impeached.”

…”It’s clear that he has violated the Constitution in the sense that he’s violated his trust with the American people through obstructing justice by firing the head of the FBI for what he said explicitly was over the Russia investigation,” Steyer said, referring to the Trump administration’s firing of James Comey in May. “He has taken money from foreign governments almost since the very first day that he took office. I don’t think there’s any question that he has, in fact, met that standard for impeachment.”

So is it performing “in a lawless way,” whatever that means? Is it a matter of public opinion (“[t]he American people want this man impeached”)? Is it that he has “violated the Constitution” by “violat[ing] his trust with the American people”? Or is it obstruction of justice, which no one has proved or disproved?

One thing is clear: Tom Steyer doesn’t seem to know what he’s talking about.
