CAMBRIDGE, Massachussetts (AP) — The Massachusetts city of Cambridge has passed a resolution calling for an impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump.

The Cambridge City Council passed the resolution Monday evening by a 7-1 vote. One council member abstained from voting.

The resolution calls on the US House of Representatives to review whether Trump’s many business interests violate the foreign emoluments clause or the domestic emoluments clause of the US Constitution. The clauses prohibit the president from profiting from foreign governments, the federal governor or state governments, other than his salary.

Cambridge voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.
