“Right now, Donald Trump is committing crimes in the open,” Steyer says in the ad, citing Trump’s vow to fight congressional subpoenas and declaration that he would listen to opposition research supplied by a foreign power in 2020. “The Mueller report identified multiple instances of obstruction of justice.”

“Congress, and that means both parties, must put their own political interests aside and focus on what’s right for our country,” Steyer says. “America will move forward as soon as leaders stop acting on their own interest, start leveling with voters and do what's right.”

Steyer has long been advocating for impeachment proceedings to begin against Trump, though the push may have renewed weight as more than 60 House Democrats are now backing the move, according to a tally kept by The Hill.
