A new ad calling for President Trump’s impeachment will air on Fox & Friends Friday and Monday.
The group behind the ad, “Need To Impeach,” funded by Billionaire Tom Steyer, is reportedly spending $700,000 to air the 60-second spot during high-viewership segments on Fox & Friends, according to Politico.
Steyer’s group is airing the spot on the Fox News show knowing that Trump is a frequent view of the network’s lineup, and has frequently called into the morning show.
The ad features Steyer himself, who begins by saying “Right now, Donald Trump is committing crimes in the open.”
The ad shows footage of Trump talking about fighting subpoenas, to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, and foreign policy with Putin. Steyer brings up the Mueller report, saying that it identified multiple instances of obstruction of justice.
Steyer, a longtime critic of the president, has funded similar advertisements encouraging impeachment, including a spot in Jan. 2018 called “South Lawn: Impeachment.”
Before “Need To Impeach,” Steyer ran ads against the administration shortly after Trump’s inauguration using his another nonprofit group he funds called “NextGen Climate,” including an ad opposing the nomination of Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“America will move forward as soon as leaders stop acting on their own interest, start leveling with voters and do what’s right,” Steyer continues in the ad.
“Congress, and that means both parties, must put their own political interests aside and focus on what’s right for our country.”
