Democratic gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon on Tuesday called for President Donald Trump to be impeached, after Gov. Andrew Cuomo said it was a matter for Congress to determine if the president committed treason.

“Trump should be impeached,” she wrote on Twitter. “Trust the American people, not Republican Senators to make it happen.”

Cuomo in a conference call with reporters earlier in the morning, initially pointed to Congress when asked if the president should be censured or face impeachment.

Cuomo has been deeply critical of Trump, knocking his administration’s response to the storm damage on Puerto Rico and the president’s comments at a news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“I’ll leave that to the Republican Senate and the Republican Congress,” he said. “I think he stepped over the line yesterday that at a minimum they should have stepped up and condemned what he said. The silence was deafening from the Republicans yesterday.”

Later in the call and after Nixon’s tweet, Cuomo returned to the question and answered it again.

“At one point you have to put the responsibility of the citizenry above political loyalty,” he said, adding, “I think they are going to have a real issue about whether the president’s actions were treasonous.”
