Pro-Impeachment Ad with Mueller to Run During Democratic Debates

Former U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s congressional testimony will feature in a television ad advocating for impeaching President Donald Trump, set to run before and after the Democratic presidential debates this week.

Backed by the Need to Impeach group founded by billionaire Democratic candidate Tom Steyer, the “What Mueller Said” ad will run on CNN and MSNBC, days after Mueller told two congressional panels about his investigation of Trump and Russia.

Excerpts from the testimony will show Mueller confirming he did not exonerate Trump, contradicting Trump’s repeated claims to the contrary, and Mueller answering other key questions.

The 32-second ad will appear during the pre- and post-debate commentary on Tuesday and Wednesday. It will then continue to air into August, as part of a $500,000 overall ad buy, the group said.

Steyer, a hedge fund manager who announced his long-shot Democratic candidacy earlier this month, is not part of the debate line-up. He founded Need to Impeach and made a contribution before announcing his candidacy but has no formal role in the organization, the group said.

Recent polls have shown that a majority of American voters oppose impeachment.

A report by Mueller, released in April, did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump committed the crime of obstruction of justice with his actions aimed at undermining the inquiry, but did not exonerate him. The report also said Mueller found insufficient evidence to establish that Trump and his campaign had engaged in a criminal conspiracy with Russia to sway the 2016 election.

Democrats who lead the House of Representatives Judiciary

Committee are considering articles of impeachment against Trump and have gone to court to seek underlying evidence from Mueller’s probe to help determine whether to move forward.

The U.S. Constitution empowers the House of Representatives to impeach presidents. If the Democratic-led House approved articles of impeachment, formally accusing Trump of wrongdoing, the Republican-led Senate would then put him on trial and decide whether to remove him from office.

No president has ever been removed from office as a direct result of Senate conviction.

About 100 House Democrats now support impeachment. But their number is less than half of the chamber’s 235-member Democratic caucus and falls far short of the 218 votes that would be needed to approve an impeachment resolution.

  1. “I have no doubts I pay closer attention to what goes on in MY AMERICA” Confused James

    Not if you actually believe the confused nonsense that you post here. You have 10 clear examples of obstruction of justice laid out in the Mueller report. All you have to do is read them, but all you do here is blindly deny, deny, deny. That shows weakness and laziness, on your part.

  2. I think Tom Steyer is an extremely rich billionaire jerk. He and George Soros comprise a greater risk to our democracy than Russian interference ever will.

  3. >Usually Confused<

    I have no doubts I pay closer attention to what goes on in MY AMERICA under this GREAT POTUS than most of the Socialist/Commie wannabes who subscribe to this site. Thanks for asking, anyway.

    1. If you don’t know the ten examples of obstruction of justice outlined in the Mueller report, then you DEFINITELY have not been paying attention at all. Not one bit of attention OR you are willfully ignoring that information and are trying to sow more of your confusion.

      1. But, but, but, what about Hillary’s deliberate obstruction of justice, lying to the FBI, deleting subpoenaed emails, destroying evidence, possessing an ILLEGAL email server for highly classified material, plus, plus, and etc. Seems like IF we’re going to have LAWS, they should apply to EVERYONE including “Saul Alinsky’s daughter” and the foreign Kenyan Marxist.

  4. muleface exoneraated Trump by not finding grounds or eveidence to charge him with anything. period.
    What “soundbites?” “It wasn’t my purview,” 200 times?

  5. “WE Americans keep asking: Impeach Trump for WHAT?” Confused James

    I am confused.

    Have you ever paid attention to ANYTHING?

  6. I’m all for impeachment.
    After all, anyone who places illegal lawbreakers, over law abiding Americans, should not be qualified to run for President.
    And any elected official, who does the same, SHOULD BE IMPEACHED!
    However, if they do impeach the President?
    It’s a sure win for him, in 2020.
    If Trump began deporting Democrats?
    Mexico would start building a wall, to keep them out.

  7. They still do not provide a single valid reason to support their hysterical calls for impeachment. It’s utter nonsense.

  8. Just leave the television OFF during the debates. Go to your favorite park and enjoy the evening. Americans need to send a strong message to these bums that we aren’t interested in the Communist babble.

    1. I’m not planning on watching it- going to catch up on what I taped and check out the Yankee game.

    2. “Debates?”
      It is just dimokraps arguing over tweaks to mutually agreed upon bad ideas.

  9. WOW, can you say “DUMBA$$” There was no collusion but PRESIDENT Trump has not been exonerated.. OKAAAAAY, Now how about getting that investigation into Obamanation and Hillary “LIAR” Clinton, going!! You know, THEIR collusion and SPYING on the Trump campaign, and how they FRAUDULENTLY ousted Bernie Sanders, with whom I believe was the actual democratic primary winner, NOT that that clown would have beaten Trump….

  10. “Need to Impeach” needs to STOP contacting the decent people of America for contributions. Not only will I NOT send them one thin dime; I wouldn’t send them toilet paper to wipe their dumba$$es.

    Take that to the bank, Steyer along with your huge <1% rating to be President of "The United Socialist States of America".

  11. The demwities please keep this up. The real American people are sick of hearing it. You are going to make them vote for someone else like President Trump and for that I thank you.

  12. If anyone needed proof that the media is an arm of the Democrat party, this is it. Democrats engaging in dirty tricks again. It will be a splice and dice video of Mueller comments. I’ll bet it doesn’t include the “No” answer in response to the question of whether President Trump hindered or interfered with the investigation. That would be the impeachable offense. Sore loser, corrupt Democrats.

  13. As much as I wish for some way to get this scumbag out of office (plus his offsprings that may follow (does “United Kingston” measure with you?) these types of ads should not have any place during the debates, no matter what side initiates them.

    1. But, sore loser, notice which side it is that runs these types of commercials. Did you ever see anything like this during the Obama administration? NO! That’s because the Democrats are the sorriest losers on the planet. They were engaging in their dirty tricks and calling for impeachment before he was ever elected. More and more people are realizing that the Democrats should never be allowed in office again.

  14. Seeing how he doesn’t exonerate but just investigates that’s a false statement. When the appointed Attorney doesn’t know his duties you end up with an inaccurate waste of paper.

  15. There will be no impeachment although it has been talked about since before Mr. Trump even took the oath of office. What an excercise in futility. The desperation of the Dumbocrats is truly mind-boggling.

  16. Wow! They really ARE completely out of ideas.

    If you tell a big enough lie often enough……

  17. Thank for the heads up, for sure I won’t be watching it now (not that I planned on it). Who would tune in to watch hours of candidates talk about their only issue…impeachment and racis. The only two topics Democrats know.

  18. I would like to see the American People storm the DNC debate, CNN and MSNBC ,,,, putting a stop to this Communist BS !!!
