DESPERATE? Billionaire Tom Steyner: Wolff’s Anti-Trump Book Make ‘Open And Shut Case’ For Impeachment
( KQED ) Billionaire investor and Democratic donor Tom Steyer says he bought 535 copies of the controversial new book about the Trump presidency, “Fire and Fury,” and plans to have them hand-delivered to each member of Congress. Last October, Steyer launched an internet and TV ad campaign to impeach Trump.
“We believed when we started this impeachment petition on Oct. 20, we felt every subsequent day would bring information that would bolster our argument that this was a dangerous, unfit president who needed to be removed from office,” Steyer told KQED Newsroom, “and from what I can tell, this book makes that case in very bold letters.”
…Steyer says he supports the Mueller investigation but believes that there is an “open and shut case that [Trump] has met the criteria for impeachment.”
“We’re not convincing anyone to do this,” Steyer added. “We’re enabling them to put together a collective national voice to speak up to national officials.”
Steyer has poured millions of his own dollars into the impeachment campaign, which includes an online petition and TV ads with Steyer making the case for impeachment.
Is Mike Pence another traitor?
Journalist Mike Cernovich revealed Friday on Periscope that Mike Pence is working to remove Trump in a Deep State coup.

Sources are also telling Cernovich and other independent journalists that the Republicans in Congress are counting votes for impeachment. The House is reportedly 3 votes away from an impeachment vote.
Is Robert Mueller’s impaneling of a new grand jury in Washington step one in the impeachment of President Donald Trump?
- No indictable crime is required to trigger impeachment proceedings
- Justice Department’s assignment of a prosecutor to investigate Trump without specifying a crime or the factual basis for a criminal investigation
- A grand jury may issue a report that recommends an official’s removal from office
( National Review by Andrew C. McCarthy ) The principal function of a federal grand jury is to investigate a suspected crime with an eye toward returning an indictment — a formal accusation of felony misconduct. In the alternative, a grand jury may file a “no true bill,” a formal finding that the prosecutor failed to show probable cause that the subject of the investigation committed a crime. Sometimes, however, to vote yea or nay on a proposed indictment is not the grand jury’s only option. In certain situations, federal law authorizes a grand jury to file a report detailing its findings, even if criminal charges are not forthcoming. One such situation involves investigations of public officials. Instead of returning an indictment, a grand jury may issue a report that recommends an official’s removal from office.
These columns have lamented the Justice Department’s assignment of a prosecutor to investigate the president without specifying a crime or the factual basis for a criminal investigation. We’ve also observed that no indictable crime is required to trigger impeachment proceedings. Neither, we now note, is a provable crime a prerequisite for the issuance of a grand-jury report.
Thus, the question arises: Is Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s impaneling of a new grand jury in Washington step one in the impeachment of President Donald Trump?
- Judge Beryl Howell, who could decide Trump’s fate, worked for Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee
- Howell signed off on Mueller’s request to assemble a grand jury
- If grand jury put together a report that would kick off impeachment proceedings, Howell is the person to approve making any of its findings public (or available to Congress)
From Daily Beast:
Beryl Howell is in a position to make pivotal decisions. And her importance could only grow. Federal court rules indicate that she signed off on Mueller’s request to assemble a grand jury, a highly secretive gathering of about two dozen people in Washington’s E. Barrett Prettyman courthouse that will grill witnesses and demand Trump associates’ documents.
And if (well, when) Team Trump’s lawyers hit back, Howell will be the umpire-in-chief: deciding whether or not Trump allies’ lawyers can quash subpoenas, and whether or not people like Jared Kushner can invoke what’s known as executive privilege to get out of testifying under oath before Mueller’s grand jury.
These decisions could be immensely consequential.
“Even though she worked for Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, she’s been very straight-arrow as a judge and she wouldn’t be impaneling a jury for the heck of it, or anything less than there being ample justification for it,” said a former federal lobbyist, referring to Howell’s previous work for Sen. Patrick Leahy. “She’s like Mueller: He wouldn’t ask for it unless he had more than enough evidence to justify it, and she wouldn’t have granted it unless he did.”
In the coming months, Howell’s role could become far more active. The grand jury could put together a report that would kick off impeachment proceedings, according to conservative former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy. The manual for U.S. attorneys says that before the grand jury could issue a report making any of its findings public (or available to Congress), a judge—meaning Howell—would have to approve it.
VIDEO! DEM. BLACKMAILING TRUMP WITH IMPEACHMENT TO STOP HIS TWEETING – DEM. BRAD SHERMAN ADMITS TO TUCKER CARLSON
Hilarious! Democrat is blackmailing Trump with impeachment in order to stop him using twitter.
Appearing at Tucker Carlson Wednesday night, Trump non-stop use of twitter is the real reason why Democrat Brad Sherman filed an article of impeachment against President Trump. Democrat Brad Sherman said he hope by this impeachment, it would stop Trump from tweeting. Oh really?
Sherman tells Carlson that with the articles of impeachment, Trump’s advisers will tell him he has to stop tweeting and that they ‘need to convince him his presidency is at risk.’
Trump twitter is the bomb the Democrat Party and the liberal media want to stop more than anything else. The unhinged left are so scared about his tweet, they don’t know when it’s going to explode, how it’s going to explode that the Democrat loonies have to resort to threat of impeachment in order to stop the rogue president from doing what we all love him doing.
On Wednesday, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) formally introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump claiming the president obstructed justice when he fired FBI director, James Comey. So far, he has one supporter.
Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) formally introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump Wednesday claiming Trump obstructed justice when he fired FBI director, James Comey. Sherman only has one supporter–Rep. Al Green (D-TX) who also previously called for President Trump’s impeachment on the House floor.
Expect more liberal meltdown to come!
The Hill reports:
“In all of this, Donald John Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as president and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States. Wherefore, Donald John Trump, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office,” the article of impeachment states.
Sherman’s article is unlikely to succeed in the GOP-controlled House.
GOP JUSTIN AMASH WANTS TRUMP IMPEACHED IF NYT OVER-THE-PHONE UNSEEN, UNVERIFIED JAMES COMEY MEMO IS TRUE
Republican Justin Amash wants impeachment of President Trump if so-called Comey memo is true. The over the phone memo leaked to NYT allege Trump told former FBI Director James Comey to end an investigation on former national security adviser Michael Flynn. New York Times used an over the phone UNSEEN, UNVERIFIED memo from a James Comey associate as their source…so much for journalism.
From The Hill :
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) on Wednesday said reports that President Trump pressed ousted FBI Director James Comey to end an investigation would merit impeachment if true, becoming the first Republican lawmaker to broach the idea.
The New York Times on Tuesday reported that Trump tried to pressure Comey to stop investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn, citing a memo written by Comey.
Asked by The Hill if the details in the memo would merit impeachment if they’re true, Amash replied: “Yes.”
“But everybody gets a fair trial in this country,” Amash added as he left a House GOP conference meeting.
Asked by another reporter whether he trusted Comey’s word or Trump’s, Amash said: “I think it’s pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey.”
