SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California billionaire Tom Steyer announced Friday that he will dump at least $10 million into a national television advertising campaign calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment.

In the ad, Steyer argues Trump should be ousted from office because he has edged the country toward nuclear war, obstructed justice at the FBI and threatened to shut down news organizations he does not like. He urges viewers to call their members of Congress and tell them to bring articles of impeachment.

“People in Congress and his own administration know this president is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons,” Steyer says in the ad. “And they do nothing.”

Steyer plans to spend eight figures to air the television ads nationally, but he would not give an exact amount. His investment comes as he considers running against U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a fellow Democrat, and as Democrats in Washington argue over whether efforts to impeach Trump are smart or worthwhile.

The White House and the Republican National Committee did not immediately comment on Steyer’s new campaign. Steyer also said he will spend seven figures on an accompanying digital ad campaign.

An impeachment resolution brought last week by Democratic U.S. Rep. Al Green of Texas died before coming up for a vote. Green has vowed to try again.

But Democrats such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California think impeachment attempts are not worthwhile because they will fail in the Republican-led Congress and could energize GOP voters heading into the next election.

Steyer has poured his wealth into a variety of political efforts, mostly focused on stopping climate change.

    Of course they won’t challenge him because he’s white, the RepubliKKKans want trump impeached they’re the ones who are leaking all of the information to the press because they want trump out of the white house, they know he’s mentally ill, a damn fool. 45 is a complete failure, an embarrassment to the party, a monster they created. The RepubliKKKans are okay with another white man calling for his acquittal just as long as it’s not someone black like Rep. Al Green or Maxine Waters. Democrats and RebupliKKKans both will not allow a black person to call for or lead a movement to impeach a white president. Let’s see if any of them challenge Tom Steyer’s call for trumps impeachment.
