Democrat Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (NY) joined Impeach President Donald Trump protesters Saturday in New York as she declared her support for launching impeachment proceedings in Congress.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) joined the New York protest group with a call for the start of impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump:

After carefully reviewing evidence laid out in the Mueller report, after attending numerous hearings, after listening to the concerns of my constituents, and after a good deal of soul-searching I have come to the conclusion that it is necessary to open a formal impeachment inquiry concerning the President of the United States and we must begin it now.

Maloney told the protesters that she knew her call could be a “painful ordeal” in what she called an “already divided nation.”

The Democrat congresswoman further acknowledged that launching an impeachment investigation would make it difficult for members of Congress to fulfill their legislative duties at the same time. 

“Impeachment will not automatically save a migrant child imprisoned on our border, or add a single unit of affordable housing, or reduce our student debt, or lower the cost of health care,” she admitted. “An impeachment inquiry won’t automatically repair the damage done to our economy by reckless trade wars, or bring an end to gun violence.” She called for taking on those issues and impeachment simultaneously. 

One of the speakers could be heard shouting that President Trump “does not care about American people” and broke the law. “We don’t need any more information. We need to begin this process,” the speaker said regarding impeachment proceedings. 

The speaker cheered on members of Congress who have joined in calling for impeachment and warned those who hadn’t that the protesters were not going away.

Several printed signs read, “Impeach Trump” which protesters waved in the air as they were led in chants.
