Billionaire investor and Democratic donor Tom Steyer says he bought 535 copies of the controversial new book about the Trump presidency, "Fire and Fury," and plans to have them hand-delivered to each member of Congress. Last October, Steyer launched an internet and TV ad campaign to impeach Trump.
"We believed when we started this impeachment petition on Oct. 20, we felt every subsequent day would bring information that would bolster our argument that this was a dangerous, unfit president who needed to be removed from office," Steyer told KQED Newsroom, "and from what I can tell, this book makes that case in very bold letters."
"Fire and Fury," written by Michael Wolff, gained serious attention earlier this week when excerpts from the book included former Trump adviser Steve Bannon calling a meeting between top Trump campaign members and Russian operatives in June 2016 "treasonous" and "unpatriotic."
Trump responded to the excerpts by lashing out at Bannon on Twitter and threatening legal action against Bannon and the book.
