California Billionaire To Now Spend $20M On Trump Impeachment Ads

California Billionaire To Now Spend $20M On Trump Impeachment Ads

Texas Democrat Al Green said Wednesday he's giving his colleagues in the House a Christmas deadline to vote on impeaching President Trump.

Tom Steyer, the San Francisco billionaire who's been running ads calling for President Donald Trump's impeachment, announced Thursday that he's doubling the scope of his pro-impeachment campaign and spending $20 million on the effort.

"Before Christmas, there will be a vote on the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism, ethnocentrism", Green pledged, banging his fist on the podium.

But a few Democrats counter Trump has already "violated the sanctity of the public's trust to an extent great enough to merit removal from office", as Barzee Flores put it, calling for the other six Democrats seeking Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's swing 27th district seat to take the same position.

With the House remaining under Republican control, any floor vote to impeach Trump would be symbolic. And apparently, if he wants to, he can force a vote. At the time, Green said he wanted to give lawmakers extra time to read through the proposal.

The articles of impeachment Green introduced say that Trump has "undermined the integrity of his office" and "brought disrepute on the presidency" with "a demonstrable record of inciting white supremacy, sexism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, race-baiting, and racism" that is "fueling an alt-right hate machine and its worldwide covert sympathizers" and "causing immediate injury to American society". Almost 2 million people have already signed Steyer's impeachment petition, he told reporters on a conference call, according to Politico. U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman of California was the first to do so in July.
