GOP Senators Warn Dems May ‘Dispense With’ Mayorkas Impeachment Articles | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Democrats who control the Senate may try to quickly discard the impeachment articles against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over his handling of the border crisis, a group of GOP senators said on Tuesday.

    Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and a dozen Republican colleagues sent a letter to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stressing that it is "imperative that the Senate Republican conference prepare to fully engage our Constitutional duty and hold a trial."

    Briefings by McConnell's staff indicate Senate Democrats "intend to dispense with the articles of impeachment by simply tabling both individually," the letter said. "This is an action rarely contemplated and never taken by the U.S. Senate in the history of our Republic."

    Last week, House lawmakers narrowly passed two articles of impeachment that accuse Mayorkas of "willfully and systemically" refusing to comply with federal immigration laws and the other alleged he "breached the public trust" with false statements and obstructing lawful oversight of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

    The office of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said the House impeachment managers "will present the articles of impeachment to the Senate following the state work period," which means a trial could start next week. Schumer's team added that senators "will be sworn in as jurors in the trial the next day" and Senate President Pro Tempore Patty Murray (D-WA) will preside.

    A two-thirds vote is required for a conviction in the Senate, which would lead to removal from office. But the articles may not make it far with a motion to table, which according to the Senate glossary is "a proposal to set aside any pending question. Used to dispose of a question the Chamber does not want to consider further. Agreement to the motion is equivalent to defeating the question tabled."

    Lee and his colleagues ended the letter by calling on McConnell to "join us in our efforts to jettison this approach by Democrats to shirk their Constitutional duty, ensure that the Senate conducts a proper trial, and that every Senator, Republican and Democrat, adjudicate this matter when the Senate returns."

Understanding that there are two firm positions concerning the Open Border Crises, but many realties regarding its current, and, or projected real impacts to the functioning, sustainability of this Constitutional Republic: What position below best represents what you know to be true regarding this impactful policy?
  The United States' must continue the Executive initiative of Open Borders until a Democratic Congress can codify full Demographic Inclusion by keeping the Biden /Harris Open Borders policy in place.
  Our United States' borders are sovereign just as are our self-governed citizens, where borders must be maintained, monitored and defended, which is the position of core Republicans.
  I am in favor of Open Borders to make my America more of a global community; however, the federal government must now fix problems that "Red State" governors have caused in our cities.
  I do NOT favor the Democratic Socialists' disruption of the cultural fabric of my Representative Republic, and there will be Treasonous Hell to Pay when the certain calamity begins in earnest.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.
