Tom Steyer, one of the top Democratic donors has officially launched a campaign to impeach President Donald Trump.
Steyer sent letters to lawmakers and governors across the country asking them to take action against the “dangerous” president.
Steyer is a billionaire environmentalist who endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race. He also created Need to Impeach, a website that asks for signatures on a petition to lawmakers.
In his campaign video, Steyer said, “He’s brought us to the brink of nuclear war, obstructed justice at the FBI, and in direct violation of the Constitution, he’s taken money from foreign governments and threatened to shut down news organizations that report the truth.”
He went on to say, “If that isn’t the case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become?”
In the letter, Steyer urged all 50 governors and 2,000 city mayors nationwide to take a public stance against Trump. He went on to criticize Trump for his “systemic attacks” against the U.S. in healthcare, as well as pulling out of the Paris climate agreement.
In the video, Steyer said, “A Republican Congress once impeached a president for far less, yet today people in Congress and his own administration know that this president is a clear and present danger, who’s mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. And they do nothing.”

A majority vote in the House is required to impeach a president. That would lead to a trial in the Senate, where a two-thirds majority is necessary for impeachment.
