Billionaire hires impeachment 'army' to 'remove Trump from power'

WND February 8, 2018

Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, a friend and donor to Obama and Clinton, is hiring an army of more than 50 political operatives in a major campaign to help Democrats get control of the U.S. House this year and “remove Trump from power.”

“Need to Impeach” Founder Steyer, 60, announced Thursday that he is hiring a team of 50 political and communications strategists to coordinate his campaign. While Steyer launched his $20 million campaign to impeach Trump last year, he has now promised to double that amount and also spend $30 million on 2018 House races through his super PAC, NextGen America.

“The team, including 50 staff members, is adding thousands of new supporters to the impeachment movement each day, creating a digital army of activists who are mobilizing to take back the House of Representatives in the 2018 election and remove Trump from power,” read a Thursday statement from “Need to Impeach.”

Separately, House Democrats announced Thursday that they plan to target as many as 101 Republican-held congressional seats this year, the most in a decade.

Steyer, who was once considered for secretary of energy during the Obama ad..., spent $10 million opposing Trump’s successful tax-reform package. He contributed about $90 million to Democratic Party candidates and causes in 2016.

Steyer was an Obama fundraiser during the 2008 presidential election, collecting $50,000 to put the future president into office. He also lobbied Obama to block the Keystone XL pipeline.

Obama and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., attended a big-money fundraiser at Steyer’s home overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in 2015. More than 50 wealthy Democratic donors attended the event.

What do YOU think? Will Democrats impeach Trump if they win the House in 2018? Sound off in today’s WND poll

The climate-activist billionaire hosted fundraisers for former Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and paid millions toward ads, canvassing and voter turnout efforts to help her.

In fact, John Podesta, former chief of staff to Bill Clinton, has had a close friendship with Steyer for many years. Podesta served as Steyer’s adviser.

Rumors are now flying about Steyer’s possible 2020 White House ambitions.

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘The Real Second Amendment Isn’t Absolute

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted Saturday there is a “real” Second Amendment and an “imaginary” one and he believes the real one is “not absolute.”

Murphy, “I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment. And the real 2nd Amendment isn’t absolute.”

The statement was a precursor to his call for banning “assault rifles” in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting, even though “assault rifles” were not used in the attack.

Murphy said the “real 2nd Amendment…allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said the Santa Fe High School attackers used a .38 revolver and a shotgun to carry out his heinous acts. Therefore, a ban on “assault rifles” would have done nothing to prevent the attack from occurring or the tragic loss of life from taking place.

It should be noted that Saturday was not the first time Sen. Murphy called the essence of the Second Amendment into question. On August 6, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Murphy told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

Murphy did not grapple with the words, “Shall not be infringed.”
