IMPEACHED! House GOP Gets the Votes on Second Alejandro Mayorkas Impeachment Attempt

The House GOP has impeached Alejandro Mayorkas…

According to a breaking Politico report, failed DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has been impeached by GOP members of the House, making him the first Cabinet secretary since 1876 to be impeached.

From Politico:

A week after a first attempt that fell short and caused heartburn for GOP leadership, Mayorkas was impeached in a second 214-213 vote. The Senate is all but guaranteed to sidestep it, with lawmakers predicting they will either send it to committee or quickly dismiss the charges of betraying the public trust and refusing to comply with the law.

Three Republicans defected on the impeachment effort: Reps. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.), Ken Buck (R-Colo.) and Tom McClintock (R-Calif.), who all also voted “no” last week. But GOP leaders were able to revive the articles against Mayorkas with Majority Leader Steve Scalise’s (R-La.) return this week after treatment for blood cancer.

The vote comes on the same day that Republicans are trying to hold onto expelled Rep. George Santos’s seat. If Democrats flip the seat, that would likely have put impeaching Mayorkas just out of reach until special elections later this year.
