It has been released to the public that Tom Steyer is planning to spend “well over $10 million dollars” on a TV campaign to push Congress to impeach President Donald Trump.
Steyer in the ad states, “A Republican Congress once impeached a president for far less. And today, people in Congress and his own administration know that this President is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons.”
So who is Tom Steyer?
He is a billionaire and environmentalist who may or may not challenge Senator Dianne Feinstein for her seat, allegedly. Like many liberals, he has flip-flopped on the situation.
According to LA Times: ...the former hedge fund manager and founder of NextGen America is worth $1.61 billion, and he’s quite willing spend a considerable amount of money in the service of his political values. In 2016 alone, Steyer spent more than $91 million to support the campaigns of Democratic candidates.
In that context, he’s got nothing to lose by funding a $10-million campaign that casts himself as the ultimate anti-Trump and reaches Democrats outside of California desperate for someone to rescue them from the current political nightmare. Also, if his long game is helping flip control of the U.S. House of Representatives to the Democrats in 2018 (and it really should be), spotlighting members of Congress who are enabling Trump complements that effort.
Conservatives should be on the alert if for this guy. He certainly has an active agenda against the current administration.
