Donald Trump
Prevent Him From
Ever Holding Office Again
Brooklyn, NY -- Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn praised the Senate for voting yesterday that it is constitutional to try Donald J. Trump for incitement of insurrection and violence against the United States government. Bichotte Hermelyn also urged the Senate to swiftly convict Trump and ensure that he never holds public office and is punished to the fullest extent for his actions.  

"How can you view the tape and see the anguish Trump caused and not understand what the former president is guilty of?" questioned Bichotte Hermelyn in response to the graphic video that was presented at the trial yesterday.
“Trump’s divisive, hateful speech directly led to the attempted coup of our government, extraordinary acts of domestic terrorism, and five deaths. The people have, thankfully, replaced Trump with the Biden Administration, but the former perpetrator-in-chief must be held accountable for his actions. This abhorrent attack on our democracy must be punished. We need to show the world that we’ll never tolerate this divisive hatred again.” 

Bichotte Hermelyn, who serves New York State’s 42nd AD and is the Chair of the Kings County Democratic County Committee, praised the 56-to-44 vote that paved the way for the House Democrats trying the case to formally open their arguments at noon on Wednesday. 

“I thank our Senate Majority Leader, Brooklyn's own, Sen. Chuck Schumer, as well as the impeachment managers for their leadership in holding the former President accountable for his actions, which have stained our standing in the world. We need to unite against hatred now more than ever. I urge all Senators from both sides of the aisle to serve fairly as the jury of America. The Senate’s decision must reflect that we’re in a new era that does not tolerate hate,” Assemblymember Bichotte Heremlyn concluded.
