Anti-Trump Billionaire Tom Steyer Launches Impeachment Ads in Iowa

Anti-Trump Billionaire Tom Steyer Launches Impeachment Ads in Iowa

. . . as he gears up for a 2020 Democrat primary run

Anti-Trump billionaire Tom Steyer has launched ads in Iowa in an attempt to bully newly-elected Democrat Rep. Abby Finkenauer and 3rd District Democrat Rep. Cindy Axne into joining his Impeach Trump movement.

The Gazette reports:

California billionaire Tom Steyer is targeting Iowa’s new congresswomen in television ads calling on them to join his effort to impeach President Donald Trump.

Stayer’s Need to Impeach campaign has purchased more than $435,000 in television time for ads in markets across Iowa, including Cedar Rapids, Waterloo-Cedar Falls, Dubuque, the Quad Cities, Sioux City and Des Moines. It’s part of a $2.5 million national ad buy targeting Iowa and the three other leadoff states in the 2020 presidential nominating process — New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

The ad targets newly elected members of Congress, including 1st District Democratic Rep. Abby Finkenauer and 3rd District Democratic Rep. Cindy Axne. Steyer calls on them — and other Democrats — to hold the president accountable by using their power to impeach him by a simple majority vote.

In the 30-second spot scheduled to run Saturday through Jan. 11, Steyer says the 2018 election results show “Americans rose up this November and rejected Donald Trump.” As a result, Trump, “more unhinged by that than ever,” has “declared war on the rule of law.”

However, voters gave Democrats the power to hold Trump in check, Steyer says.

“They just need the will,” he says, asking Iowans to join more than 6 million people supporting Need to Impeach.


Oh, and he is exploring a 2020 Democratic presidential run.

We need to implement an ’emergency trial’ of socialism and take all of Steyer’s money. And hurry before he seriously hurts us.

Impeachment ads? This is laughable!

I hope this idiot bankrupts himself chasing unicorns. But he probably has quite a stash to burn through. These ads are in very bad taste at a minimum and hopefully they’ll backfire.

I don’t pay much attention to the talk of impeachment, but I am curious about one thing. Has anyone mentioned the high crime or misdemeanor that Trump is supposed to have committed?

    Yes, orange man bad.

    The only thing showing the slightest ghost of promise is “obstruction of justice” for, ummm, whatever.

      It’s just the same bullshit that they’ve been spewing for years.

      It’s the same reason that Trump isn’t ‘allowed’ to revoke EXPLICITLY ILLEGAL executive orders. Because Trump is mean and said mean things.

      Their idea of a ‘high crime’ is Trump taking totally legal actions with ‘bad intentions’. Their theory is that firing Comey was obstruction of justice because they ‘know’ that he only did it to ‘obstruct’ Mueller.

    The definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors” is up to Congress. An impeachable offense is whatever Congress says it is; it doesn’t even have to be illegal.

      Yes, but…

      You can be absolutely certain that if the House Dems seriously try impeaching based on some nebulous fluff, the reaction from voters will be much the same as beating on a hornet’s nest with a stick and spraying it with water.

        Republicans paid a huge price for trying to impeach Clinton, somebody who unambiguously and provably committed an actual crime (perjury) that somebody fresh out of law school could have secured a conviction on in a courtroom, and which caused Clinton to be disbarred. Democrat’s defense was effectively that sure he did it and it wasn’t that big a deal.

        By contrast, Democrats have zero actual evidence that Trump has actually committed ANY crime, only ridiculous and convoluted legal theories that would get laughed out of any courtroom.

        And yet Democrats seem hell-bent on smacking the hornet nest.

        Impeachment is a political act. It’s dressed up in the trappings of a judicial procedure, but it isn’t one, and is entirely independent of any real court. The offense is whatever the prosecution (the House) claims it is, and if the jury (the Senate) pretends to agree, the victim is removed from office. There’s no review by a higher court which can throw out a bogus conviction based on bogus (i.e., non-criminal) charges. If Congress wants to claim that goofy hair is a high crime or misdemeanor (either, apparently, will do), it can remove Trump from office via an impeachment trial, no matter how ridiculous the proceeding may be.

        As for consequences for the D’rats . . . well, they’ve been trying to remove their opponents this way since 1804, but people still vote for the bastards anyway.

    Obstruction of justice for firing Comey

      Edward in reply to MarkS. | January 6, 2019 at 11:34 am

      The “logic” goes like this: Yes, the President has the legal power to remove the FBI Director, but his intention (thought crime) was to impede the investigation of his collusion with Russia (a non-crime) to win the 2016 Election.

      It is an interesting theory of the crime and the Republicans will be able to use it to bring Articles of Impeachment for all sorts of thoughts that future Democrats might have in someone’s fevered imagination.

Hey stupid, if Iowa doesn’t change it’s voting date California will be leading the socialist/communist pack on voting for the dimwit candidate for Prez.
And you’re too rich to win one for the losers.

I would comment about this but I have nothing against horses.

This guy is so warped.

A billionaire, with all the resources at hand to have a great life – yet he is a miserable, petty ignoramus.

Then again, consider Kathryn Taylor, the equally deluded clown he married. What a happy home that must be.

Is R-Rump (aka. Rags) licking his wounds? Kinda strange that he is not here bashing people.

    He’s in the isolation, until they can get the psychotropics to kick back in.

    Either that, or he’s run to Utah to meet mittens romney.

    Nah, it’s the same reason his last appearances have been petty profanity-laced insults.

    He seems to have realized that nobody even pretends to listen to him anymore, they just ignore him, downvote him and move on.

    If this forum had a block function he’d be blocked by 90% of the people here, and the other 10% would only look at him to laugh at him.

He’s running his stupid ads in Charlesto, South Carolina as well. Good luck with that.

What an idiot.

    Edward in reply to tiger66. | January 6, 2019 at 11:38 am

    He should devote several billion$ to the effort, primarily in Left coast states, but MD, DE, NJ, NY and the NE states would be ripe ground too. Maybe drop $500 million in each of these states? It would be a great jobs program.


Oh, well, hell, if Steyer’s got Dubuque covered, Trump might as well resign now.

This guy is looking like a sweating nut case.

Gosh, Tom… REALLY want Americans to don orange vests?

I’ll stick with my original predictions. The chances of Trump being impeached are pretty close to 100%. Democrats are being driven by their genocidal base, so every Democrat House member will vote in favor of it or face certain defeat at the hands of the Democrat Party voting fraud machine. There are some Vichy Republicans in the House who will gladly go along with this fiasco in exchange for a bored compliment from the WaPo or the NYT.

Since the Senate is (I think) unlikely to remove Trump, I think the next step after impeachment is to go shopping for a Federal judge who will claim that an impeached President MUST step down from office until the Senate votes. If that sounds too outlandish to be believable, then just recall the fact that the Federal judiciary is an open sewer with one wacko decision after another gurgling to the surface. The examples are endless: Roberts “Obamacare is a tax” fiasco, the unconstitutional efforts to block the ending of DACA, Jim Acosta’s constitutional right to a press pass that apparently exists for no one else, the ongoing efforts to let the invading Central American horde into the country while their dubious claims for asylum are considered.

In short: don’t underestimate this effort by Steyer, or the willingness of Vichy Republicans to go along, or the wlillingness of a Federal judge to toss the Constitution into the shredder.

    “…the wlillingness (sic) of a Federal judge to toss the Constitution into the shredder.”

    There have been multiple Federal District, Circuit and Supreme Court members who have demonstrated over and over that they see this as a valid means to their ends.

    We know you meant to type “willingness”, lack of an edit function is a shortcoming of the site.

This guy needs professional help.

He could just pay for the wall and be assured of being elected.

I still think that we should take 20% of the seventy billion being transferred to illegal’s relatives in Mexico.
