The Queens Daily Eagle reports:
Former Jamaica Estates resident Donald Trump was impeached Wednesday by the U.S. House of Representatives. He is the third president to be impeached in United States history — and the first from Queens.
The entire Queens House delegation voted in favor of impeachment.
“Today, I voted to impeach President Donald Trump … I did so with a heavy heart for our country, but a clear conscience. I did so, because, above all, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States,” U.S. Rep. Grace Meng wrote in a statement on Twitter.
This may be the best example of finding the local angle that I've ever seen:https://t.co/ZCgFxZWsh3
