The question of whether to impeach has long been considered a political one, meaning it is at the discretion of the elected. The natural result of a political question, and its politcal answer, is that it largely depends on the mood of the electorate. However, there are some voters who may have a larger influence on the decisions of the elected; those who fund their campaigns.
This article from the New York Times reports that Tom Steyer, “one of the Democratic Party’s most prominent financial backers,” has written a letter to Democrats urging them to impeach President Trump. Pressure from a man such as Steyer could help to decide the political question for an uncertain party.
