Presidential Impeachment Foes Protest in Binghamton
A small group of people demonstrated in downtown Binghamton to show support for President Trump as the congressional impeachment inquiry continues.
Members of the Tri-County Tea Party Patriots gathered Thursday on Court Street near the MetroCenter office of Rep. Anthony Brindisi.
Gary Haskell of the town of Chenango was one of those who showed up to encourage Brindisi to vote against impeachment.
Haskell said he believes the president has done a good job with respect to the nation's economy and in his dealings with China.
Group coordinator Gilda Ward of Mount Upton said "the charges against Trump are bogus."
Ward said Brindisi, a Democrat who represents New York's 22nd Congressional District, has been "on the fence" regarding impeachment. She said the protesters had received "mostly positive" reaction from passersby on Court Street.
Brindisi has said "everyone should slow down and not let the cable news or social media drive the conversation" when it comes to impeachment.
