Though the Senate is expected to vote against removing Trump from office, Need to Impeach said it will spend time and money prodding senators state by state to convict the president. The group, which is funded by Democratic billionaire and presidential candidate Tom Steyer, also plans to focus on Trump aides, including acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton, whom Senate Democrats recently asked to subpoena for the impeachment trial.
“There is a national cover-up going on as we speak. That includes Mick Mulvaney, Mike Pompeo, Bolton and Trump himself,” said Kevin Mack, lead strategist for Need to Impeach.
Meanwhile, Republicans led by Trump are putting pressure on Democrats hailing from swing districts in the hours leading up to Wednesday’s expected impeachment vote.
“There are 31 House Democrats in Trump won Congressional Districts,” Trump tweeted on Sunday. “Those Dems will have to answer to their constituents come 2020.”
