(SAN FRANCISCO, January 18, 2019)—Need to Impeach Founder Tom Steyer’s statement on the Buzzfeed report that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has evidence proving that Donald Trump directed his attorney Michael Cohen to lie to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees about the Moscow Tower project:

“On behalf of the nearly 7 million Americans who have joined the Need to Impeach movement, I call on Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler and every Member of Congress to begin impeachment hearings. It’s time for the legislative branch of government to do its constitutional duty.”

Steyer launched the Need to Impeach campaign on October 20, 2017, through national television and social media ads. Nearly 7 million people have so far signed on to support the campaign, creating a digital army that several political strategists call one of the most powerful political tools in the Democratic party.

Last week, Steyer committed an additional $40 million this year to a comprehensive public education initiative, town halls across the country, an impeachment summit in Washington, D.C., and mobilizing millions of new supporters to pressure their U.S. House Representatives and 2020 presidential candidates to support impeachment.
