Billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer says he purchased a copy of author Michael Wolff’s explosive new book on the Trump presidency for all 535 members of Congress.
The Democratic mega-donor plans to hand-deliver a copy of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” to each member of the House and Senate, he told California’s KQED radio station.

The book characterizes Trump as unfit for office and having the mentality of a child.
One excerpt from the book details a Trump campaign aide’s attempt to explain the Constitution to Trump.
“I got as far as the Fourth Amendment before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head,” Sam Nunberg is quoted as saying.
The Trump White House blasted the controversial book as full of lies on Friday and tried to prevent its publication with a last-minute cease-and-desist letter. Wolff Wolff indicated that he has audio recordings and notes to back up his assertions
Steyer recently used $20 million of his own money to fund the “Need to Impeach” campaign against Trump calling on members of Congress to support impeachment.
