Billionaire Dem Donor Steyer: Trump Should Be Impeached Because He’s Violated ‘Trust’

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” hedge-fund billionaire and Democratic financier Tom Steyer, who is running a Television ad campaign calling for impeaching President Donald Trump, said Trump had “violated the Constitution in the sense that he’s violated his trust with the American people.”

Partial transcript as follows:

BASH: Joining me now from his home state of California is Tom Steyer. mr. stir, thank you so much for joining me this morning. you have become perhaps the loudest voice calling for impeachment. the constitution sets the grounds for impeachment as treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors. which has the president violated?

STEYER: Good morning, Dana. I would say it’s clear that he has violated the Constitution in the sense that he’s violated his trust with the American people through obstructing justice by firing the head of the FBI Mr. Comey for what he said explicitly was over the Russia investigation. He has been taking in contradiction of the emoluments clause, taking money from foreign governments almost since the very first day that he took office. I don’t think there’s any question that he has, in fact, met that standard for impeachment but the important thing is not that he met the standard but it’s very important and urgent that we get him out of office.
