House Speaker Mike Johnson was questioned about the GOP’s failure to impeach DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for his failures at the southern border; “Democracy is messy,” Johnson says.

“What happened yesterday with the vote on Secretary Mayorkas? Why bring that to the floor if you didn’t have the votes and will you hold another vote on impeachment?” one reporter asked Johnson on the Hill Wednesday afternoon.

“Last night was a setback but democracy is messy. We live in a time of divided government. We have a razor-thin margin here and every vote counts,” Johnson says. “But we have a duty and a responsibility to take care of this issue. We have to hold the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security accountable. Mayorkas needs to be held accountable. The Biden Administration needs to be held accountable.”

“We will pass those articles of impeachment. We’ll do it on the next time round.”
