Ad Demonstrates that Trump Has Done Nothing to Protect our Country from Further Russian Attacks

(SAN DIEGO, February 24, 2018)—Need to Impeach Founder Tom Steyer will unveil a new impeachment television ad this morning at the California Democrats State Convention, where he is scheduled to speak. The 60-second spot—which will air nationwide on Sunday—demonstrates that Donald Trump has done nothing to protect our country from future Russian attacks, furthering the case for impeachment. The television ad can be seen here.

The ad will be shown before Steyer addresses the convention floor where he will call on Democratic party leaders to support impeachment. Out of the 39 Democratic U.S. Representatives from California, only 15 voted for Rep. Al Green’s (TX-09) impeachment resolution which was brought to the House floor last month.

“If we intend to take back the House in November, Democratic leaders need to start listening to the people who voted them into their seats. It’s undemocratic for our leaders to sit on their hands as their constituents demand action and the stability and safety of our democracy is in jeopardy. We call on all members of Congress representing California to stand up and hold this president accountable.”

Steyer launched the Need to Impeach movement through television and social networking ads on October 20, 2017, calling on supporters to sign a petition. More than 4.9 million people have since signed the petition, creating a digital army of supporters that many political strategists call one of the most formidable and powerful political tools in the Democratic party.
