After Donald Trump assumed the presidency in 2017, billionaire Tom Steyer became known across the country for the 30-city town hall-style meetings he put on called “Need to Impeach,” in which the former financier made his case why Trump deserved to be impeached.

He kept the pressure on, even as newly ascendant House Speaker Nancy Pelosi consistently resisted impeachment


In all, Steyer spent $70 million of his own money. And, then, in July Steyer switched gears by stepping away from Need to Impeach, in order to run for the Democratic nomination for president.

However, now Steyer is getting his original wish: the House is on the verge of impeaching Trump on two articles of impeachment and near-certain Republican opposition.

It’s now that House Democrats could use some help from Steyer’s group, Need to Impeach. It still exists, under different leadership.

But where is Steyer and his group now, when instead of playing the role of pressuring Democrats, now they could have the Democrats’ backs.

Steyer and Need to Impeach should be carpet bombing the airwaves right now, putting the political screws to Republicans, making it politically impossible for them to continue their through-the-looking-glass, conspiracy-based defense of Trump.

Steyer and Need to Impeach should be making it impossible for Senate Republicans to do anything but vote to remove him from office.

In working to be a socially responsible billionaire and active Democrat, Steyer has said many things that sound pleasant to our ears.


But now that Democrats have followed through on one of Steyer’s top objectives–namely impeachment–it’s past time for him to put his money where his mouth is.
