As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Steyer Targeting His Billions Against Dems Who Hesitate to Impeach Trump

The leftist billionaire — sounds like an oxymoron, but not these days — Tom Steyer is pressuring Democrats to impeach Trump ASAP, running ads in their districts to gin up anger against lawmakers failing to act and threatening to run primary challengers against them too.

According to Politico:

Steyer’s first targets are three powerful committee chairmen, Richard Neal (D-Mass.), Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). But the liberal megadonor isn’t stopping there: He will soon turn his attention to rank-and-file members seated on the committees that would be involved in impeachment proceedings, including freshmen.

And Steyer’s Need to Impeach PAC is considering going after the top three Democratic leaders, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.). “There’s a gigantic cost to not listening to your constituents,” Steyer said in an interview with POLITICO.”There’s a gigantic cost to thumbing your nose at democracy.”

Kevin Mack, Steyer’s lead strategist on Need to Impeach, said the PAC has virtually unlimited resources to spend in targeted districts. The group has committed $40 million to the campaign for 2019 so far. The offensive includes TV and digital ad buys, paid staff in key districts and volunteers to organize canvassing. Email

“We haven’t ruled out going into leadership districts,” said Mack. “Why does Steny Hoyer get a pass, why does Jim Clyburn get a pass? They’re all hiding behind the Mueller report.”

  1. At this time, if MrTrump was found to have a bigamous Russian wife, was operating a brothel at his Florida residence, shoots heroin, and was in Brentwood CA the night OJ’s wife was murdered, we don’t care. MAGA.

  2. The same as Pelosi got played by the President when he turned her pompous delay of the SOTU into his gain in viewership, Steyer’s impeachment campaign will ultimately help the President.

    Like the black face and the #metoo scandals it will be another example of Democrats eating their own as Steyer campaigns against the Left’s establishment candidates.

    And if impeachment does happen in the House it will be a black eye for the Democrats as the Senate will show it was a complete waste of time.

  3. Did Trump beat Steyer in some big business deal?
    I’ve seen Steyer’s ads and speeches. He is truly deranged.

    Someone needs to tell him that it takes 67 votes to remove a President. Not gonna happen.

  4. And cashiering Cummings and Hoyer would seriously roil regional politics in Maryland.

    Maryland is seen as so blue it’s out of play; the primary IS the election. So if Steyer scrambles the board by primarying Cummings and Hoyer, they could get a LOT of write-in support in the general.

    Does Steyer WANT more Republican congresscritters from Maryland? because if he primaries Cummings and Hoyer, that’s what he might just get.
