The Honorable Men Who Talk Impeachment

To paraphrase Mark Anthony in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Tom Steyer is “an honorable man.”

The hedge fund billionaire is spending $20 million of his own money to appear in TV commercials urging Democrats to impeach Donald Trump.

David Axelrod thinks Steyer’s ads are “more of a vanity project than a call to action.”

But Steyer is an honorable man.

Doyle McManus, the Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, thinks Steyer is ambitious.

But Steyer is an honorable man.

McManus says that Steyer’s campaign is less about Trump than about building “support for himself as a potential candidate in deeply Democratic California, where he’s mused openly about running for senator or governor next year.”

But Steyer is an honorable man.

I have written in my new book All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump: “In America, you are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to overthrow the democratically elected president of the United States and inflict irreparable damage on our country.”
That, however, is what Tom Steyer is trying to do.

But Steyer is an honorable man.

So are other honorable men—like Frank Rich of New York magazine.

“For many, if not for most, Americans,” Rich writes, “the only pleasure to be had from Donald Trump’s presidency is to imagine his premature eviction from the White House. Impeachment, the 25th Amendment, pick your poison.”

But we can’t speak ill of Steyer or Rich or Democrat Congressman Al Green of Texas, who promises to have an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives before Christmas.

For they are all honorable men.
