Chuck Schumer to dismiss Mayorkas impeachment, Senate aides say

by ian

Senate aides tell The Hill that Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is expected to dismiss impeachment charges against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas next week.

GOP House impeachment managers will present the charges on April 10. Soon after, Schumer will likely file a motion to dismiss or table the charges. Republicans accuse Mayorkas of lying to Congress and failing to protect America’s borders amid the worst migrant crisis in U.S. history.

Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.) says Americans should be outraged by Schumer’s plans.

A motion to dismiss or table the charges would only need a simple majority to pass and could see bipartisan support from moderate Republicans.
