DEVELOPING STORY: An effort to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was sabotaged by eight renegade Republicans. It is a shameful day for the Republican party.
The Republicans who voted against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green’s resolution included Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA), Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), Rep. John Duarte (R-CA), Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) Rep. Cliff Bentz (R-OR) and Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH).
“Impeachment of Mayorkas is literally the lowest hanging fruit and we are f-ng it up. Some of these people want to have endless hearings and do nothing. I can’t see how [we] can’t deliver one damn win,” one House source told Fox News Channel’s Bill Melugin.
House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) endorsed Greene’s move Sunday, writing on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter: “A vote to impeach Mayorkas is a vote to get our border under control. I’ll be voting to impeach.” But last week, Rep. John Duarte (R-Calif.), who represents a district President Biden won in 2020, told reporters last week that he is “not interested in these peripheral impeachments.”
“If we impeach anybody, it’s going to be up to [Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.)] and the Judiciary Committee to decide that he’s ready to move the impeachment inquiry to a full impeachment on President Biden,” he added.
The Republican Party has just endorsed the Biden Administration’s open borders policy. What a shameful day, America. What a shameful day.
As I predicted weeks ago this is a Do-Nothing Republican Party.
