BROOKLYN, NY – New York City Council Member Farah N. Louis issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to impeach the President of the United States for the third time in the nation’s history. President Donald J. Trump will face a Senate trial next year. “Today’s historic impeachment vote sends a resounding message that anyone who undermines our democracy or betrays the public’s trust by abusing their power will be held accountable – even the President of the United States. His reckless behavior and complete disregard for our Constitution, which he swore to uphold, has done irreparable harm to our nation. The American people need a true leader in the White House that will implement policies that are inclusive and benefits the majority, not just the one percent,” said Council Member Farah N. Louis

“Instead of utilizing his Administration to unify us, this Tweeter-in-Chief has consistently demoralized his opponents. It is my hope that the U.S. Senate will not place politics before people and take the necessary measures to restore what has been tarnished over the past two years.”
