He shouldn't be allowed to DO this stuff. Isn't there something he can be arrested for?

Billionaire hires impeachment ‘army’ to ‘remove Trump from power’

Liberal
billionaire Tom Steyer, a friend and donor to Obama and Clinton, is
hiring an army of more than 50 political operatives in a major campaign
to help Democrats get control of the U.S. House this year and “remove
Trump from power.”

“Need to Impeach” Founder Steyer, 60, announced
Thursday that he is hiring a team of 50 political and communications
strategists to coordinate his campaign. While Steyer launched his $20
million campaign to impeach Trump last year, he has now promised to
double that amount and also spend $30 million on 2018 House races
through his super PAC, NextGen America.

“The team, including 50
staff members, is adding thousands of new supporters to the impeachment
movement each day, creating a digital army of activists who are
mobilizing to take back the House of Representatives in the 2018
election and remove Trump from power,” read a Thursday statement from
“Need to Impeach.”

Separately, House Democrats announced Thursday that they plan to target as many as 101 Republican-held congressional seats this year, the most in a decade.

Steyer, who was once considered for secretary of energy during the Obama administration,
spent $10 million opposing Trump’s successful tax-reform package. He
contributed about $90 million to Democratic Party candidates and causes
in 2016.

Steyer was an Obama fundraiser during the 2008
presidential election, collecting $50,000 to put the future president
into office. He also lobbied Obama to block the Keystone XL pipeline.

Obama and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., attended a big-money fundraiser at Steyer’s home overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in 2015. More than 50 wealthy Democratic donors attended the event.

The
climate-activist billionaire hosted fundraisers for former Democratic
Party nominee Hillary Clinton and paid millions toward ads, canvassing
and voter turnout efforts to help her.

In fact, John Podesta,
former chief of staff to Bill Clinton, has had a close friendship with
Steyer for many years. Podesta served as Steyer’s adviser.

Rumors are now flying about Steyer’s possible 2020 White House ambitions.

“Our
campaign has entered a new phase of social impact,” Steyer said in a
statement. “The team that I have put together will lead one of the
largest political engagement initiatives in recent memory, mobilizing
supporters to elect public officials who are willing to put country over
party. The Need to Impeach team gets it done. They are practical, and
they are consumed with representing the will of the American people.”

Steyer has called Trump a “clear and present danger” and claimed the president is mentally unstable.

On
Twitter, President Trump has called Steyer a loser, tweeting, “Wacky
& totally unhinged Tom Steyer, who has been fighting me and my Make
America Great Again agenda from the beginning, never wins elections!”

Nonetheless,
even Obama’s former top adviser, David Axelrod, has condemned Steyer’s
campaign to impeach Trump, saying the effort is too much, too soon.

In
November, Axelrod tweeted: “Steyer impeachment ads seem to me more of a
vanity project than a call to action. It is – at least at this point –
an unhelpful message. If imepachment becomes a political tool, it will
be as damaging to our democracy as the degradations @realDonaldTrump has
inflicted on it.”

Steyer’s
organization, NextGen, has donated grants to several refugee and
immigration organizations and to the Council on American-Islamic
Relations. In 2016, it contributed $20 million to the For Our Future PAC, which donated more than $3.3 million to Clinton’s campaign and spent nearly $3.5 million to oppose Trump.

NextGen also gave $150,000 to MoveOn.org and $250,000 to Color of Change, both of which are key players in WND’s list of “Top 10 leftist groups wreaking havoc against the U.S. and sabotaging Trump.”

One “Need to Impeach” staffer is speechwriter and communications strategist Dave Bloom, who is a former undergraduate fellow of FactCheck.org and congressional intern for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.










LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
