Steyer Dumps More Cash Into Impeach Movement As Dems Jump On Board
3:07 PM 01/05/2019 | Elections
Chris White | Energy Reporter

Billionaire Tom Steyer is dumping more money into his campaign to oust President Donald Trump as incoming Democratic lawmakers consider jumping on board the movement to impeach the president.

Steyer is plowing another $6 million into what some Democratic leaders worry is an ill-fated attempt to impeach the president, The Daily Beast reported Friday. Some liberal progressive lawmakers are warming to the idea, while House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi pushes back.

He remains focused on “getting Donald Trump out of the White House,” Need to Impeach strategist Kevin Mack told reporters. “We’d like to have that happen through impeachment but if we have to we’ll beat him at the ballot box in 2020,” he noted, referring to speculation of Steyer’s political ambition.

That bulk of the cash will go to national cable and broadcast advertising in early presidential primary states like Iowa, Nevada, and South Carolina. Approximately $2.5 million will go to television campaigns while another $3.5 million is expected to be plowed into a digital effort.

I would like to know just what these impeach Trump folks expect to charge him with.  I don't like Trump, but that's not enough cause for impeachment.  Until and unless all these investigations produce something that would be considered an impeachable offense, an impeachment is a waste of time and taxpayer money.

There is a fundamental misunderstanding of our Constitutional Republic  The Low-Info morons think we have a Parliamentary System, where the Prime Minister can be chucked out by a simple vote of No Confidence.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."

So, instead of working on border security, instead of making a budget (if they even remember what one of those is on Capitol Hill) these twits are hell bent on trying Trump for ...just what, exactly?

    In spite of GOP stellar's like Issa, Gowdy and the like unable to bring one single charge against that ho, hellary, Trump has baggage and these morons will find it, unfortunately.                                                               
                                                     It's how they roll.
No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

LBJ seemed a mite cynical when he signed the Act that would have 'the n______s voting Democrat for 50 years'. Do I think he believed the BS? Nope. It was a calculated move. Between then and now, they've started believing their own crap, or at least some of them have.

So "I don't like him" is not an impeachable offense?  The democrats will be SOOOO disappointed.

@Smokin Joe

Of course he believed it. Why else do you think he and the people who supported him went to all that trouble?

And he was right,too. More than 90 percent of the blacks that vote,vote Dim.

In some districts,the Dims get more than 100 percent of the black vote. People who are dead,cartoon characters,and other imaginary people vote Dim in those districts.

This from a party that believes that whomever wins the popular vote wins the Presidency.

Oh That was a Rhetorical question!   Nevermind.

I used to think the bar had to be set pretty high, but then looking back on the two impeachments in our history, frankly they were for relatively minor things.

Andrew Johnson had 13 articles of impeachment- mostly around him firing and hiring people in the war department congress didn't like. The 12th and 13th article were basically 'disrespecting congress' - he mocked members of congress and the body in public.

Of course, we all know Bill Clinton's story. The investigation started with possible illegal structuring of land deals (Whitewater) and ended up being charged with lying about an affair and instructing others to lie.

Ideally, the bar for 'high crimes' should be very, very high, but our history shows that a congress willing to act, will set that bar very low if they don't like someone.

@ABX  Yup. 

Whenever I see somebody post, "Is that an impeachable offense?" I always answer:  "An 'Impeachable offense' is whatever the House wants it to be."  They can Impeach the President over a Tweet if they want to.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

At least with Clinton I believe they waited until he was found in contempt of Court, right?

To me, that's a good bar for impeachment.

True. But then if there aren't real high crimes, etc involved the congress, or more specifically the party in control, runs the real political risk of looking really, really stupid. Sets one helluva crappy precedent too.

I believe Pelosi is waiting for Mueller's report; I heard her say that so maybe she meant that.  Certainly if the report has a legal criminal charge against Trump, she will go for impeachment.  A judge, yesterday or the day before, extended the life of the grand jury dealing with the Mueller investigation.

She wants the political cover.  Something/anything from the Mueller report will be the basis for Impeachment, and a lot of GOP will support it because they hate Trump as much as the Rats.  We'll see support for the charges right here on TBR.  I can make book on that.

I'd expect that from the rats, they're nucking futs. But coming from 'republicans' takes sour grapes to an entirely new level.

Which as crazy as it sounds, is in line with Andrew Johnson's impeachment.
Example, this was Article 10 of Johnson's impeachment:

Quote
That said Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, unmindful of the high duties of his office and the dignity and proprieties thereof, and of the harmony and courtesies which ought to exist and be maintained between the executive and legislative branches of the Government of the United States, designing and intending to set aside the rightful authorities and powers of Congress, did attempt to bring into disgrace, ridicule, hatred, contempt and reproach the Congress of the United States, and the several branches thereof, to impair and destroy the regard and respect of all the good people of the United States for the Congress and legislative power thereof, (which all officers of the government ought inviolably to preserve and maintain,) and to excite the odium and resentment of all good people of the United States against Congress and the laws by it duly and constitutionally enacted; and in pursuance of his said design and intent, openly and publicly and before divers assemblages of citizens of the United States, convened in divers parts thereof, to meet and receive said Andrew Johnson as the Chief Magistrate of the United States, did, on the 18th day of August, in the year of our Lord 1866, and on divers other days and times, as well before as afterward, make and declare, with a loud voice certain intemperate, inflammatory, and scandalous harangues, and therein utter loud threats and bitter menaces, as well against Congress as the laws of the United States duly enacted thereby, amid the cries, jeers and laughter of the multitudes then assembled in hearing, which are set forth in the several specifications hereinafter written, in substance and effect, that it to say:
