Tom Steyer Statement on Mueller Investigation Filings
(SAN FRANCISCO, December 8, 2018)—Need to Impeach Founder Tom Steyer’s statement following the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s filings on Donald Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn:
“Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s three memos released this week make it clear that Donald Trump conspired with corrupt associates to win the presidency and underscore the depth of lies they will tell to cover up the truth.
These glimpses into Mueller’s investigation highlight the deceitful operation that has surrounded Trump for decades and the cover-up that his associates orchestrated with the White House at the expense of our democratic institutions and the rule of law. We have well passed the threshold for Trump’s impeachment.
For members of Congress who are waiting on Mueller’s report before beginning impeachment proceedings, he has just given you three more chapters into his findings to begin removing this dangerous president from power.”
Steyer launched the Need to Impeach campaign on October 20, 2017 through national television and social media ads. More than 6.4 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. So far, 16 national commercials—including two in Spanish—have aired, reaching more than 2 billion television viewers and more than 454 million people through social media.
