Democratic mega-donor Tom Steyer thinks you can impeach a United States president because you don’t like him. Earth to Steyer: You have to commit a crime to be impeached.
The billionaire environmentalist poured an additional $10 million into his campaign to impeach President Trump. That’s on top of the $10 million he committed last month.
During a conference call with reporters Thursday, Steyer said he plans to run two new television ads urging Americans to impeach Trump, Politico reported. One of the ads will announce that his “Need to Impeach” petition has garnered 1.9 million signatures.
Tom Steyer’s rants echo similar calls from Democrats Maxine Waters and Ted Lieu, who don’t seem to understand that you can’t impeach a United States president just because you dislike him.
All three claim Trump “obstructed justice” when he fired Obama-appointed FBI director James Comey in May 2017, and that’s why Trump should be impeached. In reality, the president can fire the FBI director anytime, for any reason. Especially one appointed by a former president.
It’s ironic that Maxine Waters has repeatedly trashed Trump as corrupt when she was voted one of the most corrupt members of Congress by the George Soros-funded liberal watchdog CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington).

Even Alan Dershowitz — a liberal Harvard Law School professor who voted for Hillary Clinton — said there’s no evidence Trump obstructed justice when he fired Comey.
Dershowitz has also repeatedly said there is no evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. The famed criminal attorney even said Trump should end Robert Mueller‘s Russia investigation due to lack of evidence.
“What is the crime?” Dershowitz asked (see video). “I just don’t see a crime here.”
