Tom Steyer targets key House Republicans on impeachment

Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer is setting his sights on two of President Donald Trump’s fiercest defenders in Congress: Republican Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Mark Meadows of North Carolina.

Steyer’s Need to Impeach PAC is launching a week-long TV ad campaign in districts currently held by the two GOP members of the House oversight committee — one week after Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, presented evidence to the committee of alleged criminal conduct committed by the president.

The ads are the first from Need to Impeach aimed at specific Republican members on the issue and will cost the group a modest $75,000 in the two districts. Steyer has thus far focused his impeachment pressure campaign primarily on key Democrats, holding town halls in the home districts of the chairmen of the House Ways and Means, Oversight and Judiciary committees, urging them to begin impeachment proceedings.

The new ads are the latest turn in Steyer’s effort to impeach Trump, which began in 2017. Need to Impeach decided to target Jordan and Meadows after their comments at the Cohen hearing.

“It’s not okay to cover up the president’s crimes,” said Kevin Mack, lead strategist for the PAC.

The 30-second spot's message: “When the history of the Trump presidency is written, members of Congress will be sorted into two categories: The ones who let politics scare them out of holding Trump accountable and those who had the courage to stand up and defend our Democracy,” a narrator says, as images of Trump ally Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Jordan flash across the screen next to Trump’s tweets.

2. I applaud him and his efforts!

Thank you Tom!!!!!!

I contributed to his Need To Impeach campaign when it first started. I wish my medical and health bills weren't so high or I would donate more money to him and the Dems. He even went after Nunes before...

3. Just saw a need to impeach ad here in Texas. I asked this

question before. If they won't impeach and they won't bring up 25th amendment, and they won't indict a sitting president. What will happen? If they issue sealed indictments *it would be Mueller's grand jury? - would it have to be a secret? In other words, can we say, don't vote for this MF, since he's being indicted? And if it's SDNY, will they indict? guess not, since they are just a branch, right?

4. We have two more years of trump if impeachment or 25th amendment doesn't happen.

Then, we'll have to hope to God he's voted out next year.

Re: sealed indictment - it is secret until such time the prosecution decides to charge the defendant and therefore unseal the indictment.

Yes, SDNY is federal, not state.
