House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has reportedly said Tom Steyer's petition calling for the impeachment of President Trump is a distraction. Steyer responded in an interview that "the political establishment is dead wrong on this."

Why it matters: Although both Pelosi and Steyer are consistent critics of President Trump, their differing viewpoints highlights a growing tension in the Democratic party between activists like Steyer and establishment Democrats like Pelosi.
