The movement to save America by getting Donald Trump out of the White House has just gotten real. Apparently, a major Democratic donor – billionaire Tom Steyer – has just made it his personal business to impeach Trump by launching a campaign to do so.
On Friday, Steyer posted an ad calling for Trump to be removed from office, stating that “it’s time to begin impeachment proceedings”. You can watch this glorious ad below:
This call to action is also stated on Steyer’s website NeedToImpeach.com, which features a letter specifically giving all the reasons why Trump needs to go and why elected officials must get involved in this issue. The letter states:
“Given Trump’s total lack of fitness for office, the question of impeachment becomes a very real issue should we succeed in our midterm goal. That makes it imperative for every Governor of every state, and every mayor of every city, to acknowledge where they stand. This question affects the lives of every single American. They deserve to hear whether or not our party is willing to do what is necessary to protect them and their families. This is not an academic exercise. The very stability of the Republic is at stake.
So, by way of this letter, I am asking you today to make public your position on the impeachment of Donald Trump, and to urge your federal representatives to remove him from office at once. Every day he remains in reach of the nuclear codes is another day for him to menace the citizens you serve and protect. Your constituents deserve to know they are represented by people in every level of government who have the patriotism and political courage to stand up and take action when it is so desperately needed. This is not a time to give in to an establishment that insists on acting the way the establishment always does, with “patience” or “caution.” It is an unprecedented moment, and it calls for extraordinary measures. We cannot remain fixated on what is politically smart. We have to do what is morally right.”
And Steyer isn’t messing around. CNN reports that Steyer is dropping over $10 million on this initiative, which he considers to be mandatory for America’s survival. In an interview with CNN, Steyer stated that he believes that personally funding his mission will be “money well spent” because both Democrats and Republicans are aware that Trump is “a clear and present danger to their health and safety.” We could not agree more.
