Apparently, running one of his “impeach Trump” ads during game five of the World Series didn’t provide billionaire Democratic donor Tom Steyer enough exposure.
As we’ve previously reported, the unhinged billionaire’s ad campaign demonstrates a shocking lack of self-awareness.

Last week, special counsel Robert Muller and his team subpoenaed the Trump campaign asking campaign officials to handover Russian-related documents. The subpoena was first reported by the WSJ on Thursday, which the source said, the campaign has already turned over 20,000 documents, and was not clear why the subpoena was issued. Mueller and his team of investigators are probing for any collusion between President Trump and ‘the Russians’ during the 2016 presidential election.
