House Moves to Impeach Mayorkas


“The House will vote today to impeach DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the first time the chamber has moved to oust a Cabinet secretary in nearly 150 years,” Punchbowl News reports.

“If all 431 members are present and voting, House Republicans can only lose three votes. Democrats are expecting one absence, which gives Republicans a little more room to maneuver.”

“Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) has publicly said he’s a ‘hard no’ on impeachment. Reps. David Joyce (R-OH), Tom McClintock (R-CA) and Dan Newhouse (R-WA) are possible GOP no’s we’re tracking too.”

New York Times: “Republicans are pressing forward despite the assessment of legal experts, including some prominent conservatives, that Mr. Mayorkas has not committed high crimes and misdemeanors, the constitutional threshold for impeachment.”

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) already reportedly has a list of impeachment managers drawn up.
