MIke Khader, Esq., is Yonkers City Council President.

YONKERS, NY — December 20, 2019 — Last night, for only the 3rd time in the 243 year-history of our great nation has a president been impeached. The House of Representatives formally filed Articles of Impeachment against Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America for abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

Public trust in our elected officials is paramount and must never be compromised. For any elected official to use their office for self-enrichment is against the fundamental principles of our democracy.

No President or Executive is above the law.

Whether or not you agree with the charges, it’s a solemn day for our nation when the leader of our country is accused of such troubling accusations.  Despite the situation at hand, we should all feel confident that our nation’s democratic system is working the way our founding fathers envisioned.

I have faith that the separation of powers and the system of checks and balances will work, and we will all get through this together. The United States of America will come out stronger and more resilient.

  1. So the reason people didnt vote against the mayor is because they are disgusted with him??? Hmmm okay, lmao. He recieved 81% of the vote. That is a fact and the fact that you can’t grasp this is disturbing.

  2. I wish everyone would stop with the nonsense on this site Mike Khader is a good man and comes from a good family and has the city best interest at heart. Mike Spano is also a good man! He does good for our city. Stop with the third term. They had a hearing and hardly anyone showed up, they had a primary and the mayor received 82% of the vote, we had a general and mayor received 81% of vote. It would seem the only people that are upset with the mayor and khader are the haters in this site.

    Happy holidays to all! Stop with the hate. Elections are term limits. Stop getting upset because you backed the wrong horse. It happens. Enjoy everyone

    1. Stop with the bullshit that the Mayor Spano received 81% of the vote because that is mathematically incorrect -less than 20% of the eligible registered voters showed up for the Mayoral election-so if you disagree with Spano and you voice your objections and disgust your a hater. The reason a lot people don’t show up because they are dissatisfied with the he is running the city-administrative corruption and patronage runs rampant in the COY and the POS who sit on the Yonkers City Council are all recipients of this corruption-bar none.

      1. Spano received 81% of the vote because He didn’t have an opponent. 2 to 1 democrat and Mike owns the hiring hall and political favors. You are right 81% of voters didn’t vote for him, because they were uninspired by Mario.

  3. An independent investigation committee probe should look into the city of yonkers for corruption from top to bottom and open the books and see how bad the cancer has grown.

  4. The way this impeachment has been done is a complete disgrace. Do you notice the ones that are always at the podium are from California or New York. These are states that are seeing the exodus of people. California population growth slowest since the 1900 more and more people leaving the state. The democrat party is no longer what it was. Keep going left and it will be soon off the cliff.

  5. You talk about “self enrichment”. I do seem to remember a little over a year ago you voted to extend term limits for the mayor which also includes to city council. Not that you will be there for 3 terms. But with that one vote you and your cronies just cost the city millions of dollars. You have done nothing for the city.

      1. Khader and Corazon actually voted against extending term limits. I was there for the vote. He said he wasn’t opposed to extending term limits, but he wanted it to be a referendum.
        Ron Matten

        1. Yeah Corazon voted against it. She got a nice political job from Latimer. Do they EVER try to survive in the private sector? None of them would last one day. It is one long job connection from one branch of government to another.

  6. WHY ARE WE SO UPSET WITH MIKE SPANO GETTING A THIRD TERM…MIKE BLOOMBERG DID THE SAME THING IN NEW YORK CITY AND NOW HE IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT….YOU SHOULD BE MORE CONCERNED THAT A CRIMINAL IS SITTING IN THE OVAL OFFICE…IN ADDITION TO HIS UKRAINIAN BRIBERY ATTEMPT..YOU ARE GOING TO LEARN OF THE FOLLOWING: MONEY’S LOANED FROM RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS THROUGH DEUTSCHE BANK TO THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION, CRIMES COMMITTED BY HIS INAUGURAL COMMITTEE, FRAUD COMMITTED BY HIS CHARITY (ALREADY ADMITTED) TAX CRIMES, WIRE FRAUD BY HM AND HIS BUSINESSES AND FAMILY, SELF DEALING IN RUSSIA AND TURKEY WITH PUTIN AND ERDOGAN,VIOLATIONS OF THE EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE. AND ON AND ON

    1. Lol, none what you posted is true. You post like Baghdad Bob! You must be suffering from Trump derangement syndrome! Donald Trump is our president and will be till January 2025. Trump is not going to jail and nothing you claim is true. Trump has saved our country and we all owe him a debt of gratitude. Keep America great again.

    2. Are you kidding me? Comparing what someone like Bloomberg did to the likes of Spano? That’s not even apples and oranges. Bloomberg was head and shoulder above and the term limits extension hurt even him. Give me a break.

  7. “Public trust in our elected officials is paramount and must never be compromised. For any elected official to use their office for self-enrichment is against the fundamental principles of our democracy.”

    Said City Council President Mike Khader under a Spano administration – bahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

    Boy, that’s rich.

  8. We have a strong mayor form of government in yonkers. This “statement” was about the federal government but its real meaning was to point out the abuse being done by the strong mayor of yonkers Mike Spano. Sit back and let Spano destroy himself Khader. Just try as much as you can to prevent Spano from destroying yonkers while he destroys himself.

  9. Let’s stop the pandering on things that hove nothing to do with your position.
    How about focusing on Yonkeers and quit the pandering, about something that does not concern you and focus on the corruption in Yonkers.

    Here’s a Santa wish list for you to do your actual job!!!!!!

    1. What are you doing about the illegal, against the will of the people, third term of SpaNO?
    2. What are you doing about the illegal, against the will of the people, third term those on the $hitty Council?
    3. What are you doing to control out of control spending in the budget?
    4. What are you doing to keep payroll under control
    5. What are you doing to reduce out of control taxes both property and payroll?
    6. What are you doing to increase City of Yonkers workers productivity ? It’s really low
    7. What are you doing to make the DPW actually empty the garbage pails and not leave them half collected?
    8. What are you doing to make the DPW fill every pothole when they come out to fill them, and not like last week when they filled one and ignored the other 2 holes to come back days later to fill the other 2, disgraceful?
    9. What are you doing to fix the roads they truly are third worldly?
    10. What are you doing to curb out of control spending at the BOE?

    1. Spano was elected to a third term, so it’s not against the will of the people.
      Breeno the clown is the only third term councilman and he won 100% of the vote.
      You want potholes filled? How about paying your fair share of taxes.
      BOE is not out of control. They don’t have enough money, because YOU don’t pay your fair share.

      1. The will of the people had nothing to do with it. The people voted for term limits twice. The city council overturned the will of the people, because they knew it would never be overturned in a public vote.

    2. Mr. Khader,
      Why have you not written to Geoffrey Berman, successor to Preet Bharara, about the seemingly quid-pro-quo votes for the extension of term limits, by councilmembers Sabatino and Rubbo? Sabatino, after he denied knowledge of an attempt to overturn term limits, VOTED to overturn term limits and then, after denying he would get a job from the Spano administration, GETS A JOB from the Spano administration. And Rubbo, whose brother got a non-competitive teamster job from the administration, around the time he voted to extend term limits. What say you, Khader? Stop writing bulls..t press releases about the impeachment and address the corruption in your own city – to quote the Music Man – ‘we got trouble – right here in river city’.

    1. ☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾
      POTUS WAS IMPEACHED ON WEDNESDAY BY CONGRESS, IT IS NOW UP TO THE SENATE
      TO CHARGE HIM AND REMOVE OR EXONERATE.

      LOOK AT IT THIS WAY
      POTUS WAS BASICALLY INDICTED AND NOW AWAITS TRIAL.

  10. Let’s stop the pandering on things that hove nothing to do with your position.
    How about focusing on Yonkeers and quit the pandering, about something that does not concern you and focus on the corruption in Yonkers.

    Here’s a Santa wish list for you to do your actual job!!!!!!

    1. What are you doing about the illegal, against the will of the people, third term of SpaNO?
    2. What are you doing about the illegal, against the will of the people, third term those on the $hitty Council?

    1. It should concern us all.
      Yonkers is part of United States.
      We have senators and congressman who represent Yonkers. IF the corruption, quid pro quo, bribery, back room deals, etc takes place in Albany and Washington. What makes you think abuse like this doesn’t happen on a local level.

      We should and need to pay attention to local and national politics.

      There was enough smoke to investigate trump, now it is up to the senate.

      May God Bless America and all of our leaders in doing the right thing all the time.

      1. He can read about or watch in on TV like Mr Dump (since he cannot read). His position is in Yonkers, he is no where near Washington and will never be. Update us on corruption in Yonkers. How many potholes do we need filled? How much more taxes SpaNO will suck out of us as the republican he is?
        Anyone stealing salt this year??? The usual yonkers $hit……
        You know Yonkers stuff, the stuff he was elected to take care of.
        The impeachment is such a scam by both parties to hide the Report on the cost of the “so called war on terror” in Afghanistan which has cost trillions and killed millions. And remember all Presidents named in the report have continued the “WAR” but played it down. They are Bush, Saint Obama and Dump.
        So do your own job and don’t worry about other “public servants”…..

        1. Too much obstruction 🤣🤣🤣🤣 in Yonkers for him or anyone to their job!

          All they have done in last two or three months is run around Yonkers at the same type of events with the same people pretending to be saints.

    1. Mr Khader you’re correct no one is the above the law as your side of the aisle likes to say -the only ones above the law are the illegal immigrants.

        1. Mr. Khader does not have the balls he was born with if he was born with any at all-all Khader does is put out sound bites that have no real meaning at all.

          1. maybe if the shitty council members questioned the Mayor and stood up to him things will be different but for now they are all bought and paid for by 2nd floor Puppet master
