GOP plans to halt Senate business if Schumer blocks Mayorkas impeachment trial

by ian

Sources tell Fox News that about a dozen Republicans are planning to stop business in the Senate if Democrats block an impeachment trial against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The House is planning to send impeachment articles to the Senate next week after a brief delay. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is expected to dismiss the charges – a move that’s already being attacked by Republicans like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Schumer has yet to make his plans known other than saying he wants to address the issue as soon as possible.

Republicans accuse Mayorkas of lying to Congress and violating federal immigration law. The charges come as he admitted yesterday for the first time that the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border is a “crisis”.
