(East Farmingdale, NY)- The call to remove President Donald Trump from office in his final days is growing on Long Island. New York Democrats including, Long Island Representative Kathleen Rice, Representative Tom Suozi, and New York Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer, joined the list of elected officials across the nation that are calling for the presidents removal.
Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, issued the following statement on Thursday, “The President is directly responsible for inciting the insurrection that transpired in our nation’s capital. He is just as culpable as the mob that attacked the rule of law, our democratic principles, and law enforcement…. I urge our members of Congress to support Senator Schumer’s call to invoke the 25th Amendment or begin impeachment proceedings immediately.”
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran, issued the following statement on Wednesday, “For hundreds of years, the peaceful transition of power has been a foundation of our Country. It doesn’t matter who you voted for – violence like what we are seeing in Washington today should never be accepted in a free society. This is not about politics, this is about safety, freedom and decency. I am lending my voice in support of law enforcement who are keeping everyone safe”
