Default Billionaire Steyer Wants Trump Impeached and He May Run For President

Here is an excerpt from Steyer’s op-ed:

“As President Trump continues to accelerate his lawlessness, the new Democratic House majority must initiate impeachment proceedings against him as soon as it takes office in January.”

“For nearly two years, Mr. Trump has publicly flouted his oath of office. He has turned the presidency into a moneymaking enterprise for a family business he refuses to divest from, in direct violation of any plain reading of the Constitution. He is all but an unindicted co-conspirator in two federal felony cases. He has created an atmosphere of criminality through his hateful, violent rhetoric against political opponents, journalists and private citizens alike.”

“Most egregiously, he has a longstanding pattern of obstructing justice. On Wednesday, he continued this by firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and installing Matthew Whitaker — who has publicly called for curtailing the special counsel’s investigation — as acting attorney general, sparking a constitutional crisis that threatens the rule of law itself.”

“As the list of Mr. Trump’s impeachable offenses — at least nine and counting — has grown, more than 6.2 million people across the country have signed a petition, created by my organization Need to Impeach, demanding that their representatives confront his lawlessness. For months, public support for impeaching the president has been roughly equal to what it was before Richard Nixon resigned.”




Quote:
“Tom Steyer just now on CBSN asked about a 2020 bid: ‘I promise I’m thinking of it really hard.’ Also says, ‘we need transformational leadership…who will not try to meet in the middle.”
At least someone cares enough and is counting the cost of us living under this weird regime.

A rich left wing loon who wants Trump impeached. I wonder if the ****-tards who support him will say he doesn't have anything in common with the average citizen? Like they said about Trump as though somehow Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton pumps their own gas and works at McDonalds.

Yes Comrade, Trump needs to be impeached for the crime of winning the election. The Presidency is far too important for the common good to be left to the People.

The effortless hypocrisy of Democrats is something to behold Steyer is the archetypal villian, hedge fund manager and billionaire, they claim to revile. Yet, when he opened his checkbook to the tune of $100 million in the midterm elections Democrats came running with their hands out. But hey, he wants to impeach President Trump so it's OK to buy himself the eager whores that call themselves Democrats.

Besides discarding their fake revulsion for the rich Wall Street types most Progressives are too ignorant of history to realize Steyer's platform besides impeachment has been recycled from FDR.

the “5 rights" on Steyer's platform: the right to an equal vote, to clean air and water, to learn with pre-K education through college, to a living wage, and to health.
https://www-politico-com.cdn.ampproj...al-bid-1005612

Compare that to FDR'S so-called second bill of rights.

Quote:
Employment (right to work[notes 1]), food, clothing and leisure with enough income to support them
Farmers' rights to a fair income
Freedom from unfair competition and monopolies
Housing
Medical care
Social security
Education
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_bill_of_rights

Of course Bernie Sanders also proposes almost the same agenda but Steyer leads with the Resistance mantra. Besides, Bernie is quite reasonably priced, last time all it took was a new beach house to get him to roll over.

Those wanting Trump impeached are nothing more than fringe elements on the left. You are no different than the birther-tards who claimed Obama had a fake birth certificate or the truffer-tards who claimed Bush masterminded 911 or stole the elections. Trump has done nothing worthy of impeachment. Trump winning the election and loony leftist lib-tard conspiracies do not count as impeachable offenses.

49% of the country are fringe elements on the left?

A liberal poll of a 1000 people doesn't constitute the country.All it means is that slightly half of the 1000 of the ABC/Washington Post viewers/readers thinks he should be impeached. It has as much credibility as a poll from Alex Jones. Which is zilch.

“Liberal poll.” This is now my favorite humor site in the internet.

Trump just days ago committed obstruction of justice tweeting his thoughts to the judges in the cases of Manifort and Comey.
A crime to suggest he may pardon one and not the other but more clearly a crime weighing in on a legal judgement that involves anyone especially himself.
Since charging a sitting President is still up in the air, impeachment is the only option unless he can be talked into resigning before that is on his permanent record.
