'Mentally unstable, armed with nukes': United States billionaire looks to impeach Trump

'Mentally unstable, armed with nukes': United States billionaire looks to impeach Trump

Environmental activist and Democratic mega-donor Tom Steyer is spending $10 million on a national TV campaign calling for the impeachment of President Trump, CNN reports, and the group released its first ad on Thursday.

In a YouTube video posted on Friday, Steyer accused Trump of bringing the country to the "brink of nuclear war".

"We need to impeach and remove from office such a risky President", he said.

Steyer's latest letter, obtained by The Hill, comes a week after he penned letters to Democratic congressional offices and Democrats' House and Senate campaign committee, demanding that they support impeaching the president if the party regains control of Congress in 2018.

Amir Khan-Zaira Wasim starrer starts slow
People want to stay at home during festival time and also, it is a long weekend for many, so they might have gone for vacations. Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and Zaira Wasim starrer " Secret Superstar " minted Rs 4.80 crore on Diwali, the makers said.

Need To Impeach, the group behind the effort, has a letter on its website outlining the case for Trump's impeachment.

"Whether by the nature of Mr. Trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin and Russian Federation, his willingness to exploit the office of the Presidency for his personal gain and treat the government like a family enterprise, his conduct during Charlottesville, his decision to pull out of the Paris climate accords, or his seeming determination to take the nation to war, he has violated the Constitution, the office of the Presidency, and the trust of the public", Steyer said in an open letter on the website. "Congress has impeached past presidents for far less".

The ads were not paid through Steyer's political arm, NextGen Climate. Dianne Feinstein's comment that Trump "can be a good President". He urges viewers to call their members of Congress and tell them to bring articles of impeachment.

In an open letter, Steyer goes on to say that Trump is simply lacking "fitness for office", and notes that the question of impeachment thus "becomes a very real issue". Democrats may have a hard time rejecting that request, given that Steyer was the single biggest liberal donor in the last two federal election cycles, according to the New York Times.
