“The Resistance” to President Trump has been unlike anything America has ever seen.
George Soros has bankrolled massive Antifa protests that have turned violent against Trump supporters and caused massive property damage.
But a new leftist billionaire just unveiled his plans to top Soros and take out Trump.
The Democrat Party base wants to impeach President Trump.
While party leadership hems and haws about it in public, if they take control of Congress in November, impeachment proceedings will likely soon follow.
And it’s all being bankrolled by billionaire Tom Steyer.
Steyer told Politico he intends to dump $110 million into his 2018 midterm election efforts.
Between his two organizations, NextGen America and Need to Impeach, Steyer claims he’ll have nearly 1,000 staffers and more than 2,000 volunteers.
Steyer is building out an operation that’s bigger than anyone’s other than the Koch brothers’ — and the billionaire and his aides believe the reservoir of nontraditional voters he’s already activated could become the overriding factor in House and other races across the country.
Yet Steyer’s oversize role also stands to position him squarely against Democratic Party leadership, which has shown little appetite for pursuing one of his signature causes: impeachment.
Need to Impeach is rolling out an extensive electoral plan, from having its most committed volunteers write postcards to other voters (which they are tracking through smart codes) to going in hard on field organizing, emails and phone calls. Steyer will continue to air ads through November pressing the issue in an organization where the expectation is that each buy is at least $1 million.
Steyer plans to active low-frequency voters through a rallying cry centered around impeachment.
If his preferred candidates win and Democrats take control of Congress, Republicans should definitely be concerned that Democrats will pursue impeachment along with other efforts to derail Trump’s efforts to Make America Great Again.
Steyer may also have his eye set on a higher prize than Democrats taking Congress in 2018 — Politico notes that there’s talk he’s interested in a 2020 presidential run.
Should Republicans be concerned about an anti-Trump blue wave in November?
