'Let the American people see the facts' on impeachment: Tom Steyer
Billionaire liberal activist Tom Steyer, who announced earlier this week that he is joining the more than 20 Democratic candidates running for president, joined ABC's "This Week" to discuss the early stages of a campaign that he has pledged to spend over $100 million of his own money on to capture his party's nomination.
Steyer defended his recent push for impeachment of President Donald Trump, telling ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl that "actual democracy," and more public visibility will boost support for Trump's removal.
"Let the American people see the facts and let them judge. That hasn't happened. It is a failure of government," Steyer said.
Steyer, who has spent years pouring millions of dollars into causes like combatting climate change through outside groups, such as NextGen America, entered the race months after it appeared he was forgoing a presidential bid, having said at a January press conference that he would not run "at this time."
