Impeach Trump? Top Democratic Governors Dismiss Steyer's Attempt
BONN, Germany — Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Sunday he does not support impeaching President Donald Trump, after Democratic billionaire Tom Steyer pressed the case for impeachment at the United Nations climate conference here.
“Let [special counsel Robert] Mueller, and let the people who are doing the process, go through and do what they’re doing,” McAuliffe said after a breakfast speech by Steyer, a supporter of the Virginia Democrat. “You don’t prejudge investigations.”
Steyer, who is spending millions of dollars running television ads in the United States calling for Trump’s impeachment, told a small crowd Sunday that “lack of action is a choice.”
But Steyer’s message did not appear to resonate with top Democratic politicians in Germany for the climate talks. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, who also attended the breakfast, said she has no position on impeachment, which she said is “something that Congress is going to deal with.” California Gov. Jerry Brown was also dismissive.
