“Nadler has made it clear that any anti-Trump narrative, no matter how obscure, laughable, or deficient in terms of evidence, is potentially acceptable as a pretext for impeachment.” –Nicholas L. Waddy

Sad to say, but Tom Steyer, out-of-touch and unlikable billionaire though he may be, is probably the most representative face of the Democratic Party right now. Almost since the day President Trump won the 2016 election, Steyer has been bawling like a toddler and insisting that Trump’s prompt removal from office, via impeachment, is a moral and political imperative. He was ahead of his time.
Steyer and his “Need to Impeach” movement offer a laundry list of reasons why Trump should be impeached and removed from office, from alleged obstruction of justice to violations of the Emoluments Clause, Russian collusion, racism and bigotry, recklessness, “persecution” of political opponents and the free press, mistreatment of “immigrants,” and paying hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels.
Or, to put it another way, Steyer’s rationale for impeachment is so diffuse that it’s utterly incoherent. Steyer presumably is bargaining that, if he throws everything but the kitchen sink at Trump, one of these charges—it doesn’t much matter which one—will stick, and Trump will go down like a ton of bricks.
Tom Steyer, for all his malevolent fury, is just a private citizen, albeit one who has plowed millions of dollars of his own money into a campaign to subvert American democracy. What’s more worrying is that Steyer’s no-stone-left-unturned approach to impeaching President Trump now seems to be the official strategy of the House Judiciary Committee under Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.).
Nadler has made it clear that any anti-Trump narrative, no matter how obscure, laughable, or deficient in terms of evidence, is potentially acceptable as a pretext for impeachment. Again, he doesn’t much care why Trump is impeached, just so long as he is.
