Steyer said Friday in a statement that Fox News informed him on Oct. 31 that it was refusing to air the ad entitled “Join Us.”

Steyer said the decision “shows no respect for democracy.”

Steyer launched his $10 million “Need to Impeach” ad campaign in late October, drawing the ire of Trump, who called Steyer “wacky & totally unhinged.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday downplayed the idea that Democrats will seek to impeach Trump if they take back the House in next year's midterm elections.

She suggested Democrats will allow the various investigations of Trump to play out in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."

“I believe that whatever we do, we have responsibility first and foremost to unify the nation,” she said. “Second of all, you can’t go down any path without the facts and the law. If that’s there, perhaps it will come out in these investigations.”
