Democrats don't want Tom Steyer's impeachment guide

The Democratic Party's civil war between its far-left progressives and moderates is about to get more intense. Tom Steyer's Need To Impeach organization just mailed 5,171 candidates a guide to impeachment to reference while campaigning.

"Neither the establishment nor Democratic leadership is going to be providing this type of information to federal candidates," said Kevin Mack, lead strategist at Need To Impeach. But that's the issue: Democrats increasingly believe moderate platforms and candidates — not progressives calling to remove the president — will help them take back the House of Representatives in November.
