GOP senators press McConnell to back Mayorkas impeachment trial, warning Schumer wants to table it

Cruz says that Chuck Schumer has tried to overturn 200 years of Senate precedents by bringing the case of Alejandro Mayorkas.

Senate Republicans are increasing pressure on Minority leader Mitch McConnell, warning that Chamber Majority Leader Chuck Schumer does not want to vote on the GOP House impeachment resolution.

Ted Cruz, R. Texas, a member the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote on his X page Wednesday that Chuck Schumer was trying to break 200 years of Senate precedents by presenting the impeachment case. This would prevent the American public from hearing the evidence regarding Biden’s open border policy.

Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), a senator from West Virginia, predicted before the GOP-led House passed two articles of impeachment against Mayorkas that Schumer would try to stop a Senate trial. However, it is unclear exactly how Schumer plans to accomplish this.

Passover is a celebration of freedom from our oppressors, yet Israel and its people are still seeking freedom & waiting for the Peace of Jerusalem. For this Passover, the Genesis 123 Foundation is working to ensure Israel has the resources to fend off any additional attacks from Iran and its terrorist proxies. Will you help Israel defeat the new Pharaoh today?

Manchin stated that he wants to “get it out as quickly as possible.”

Democrats hold a 51-49 Senate majority, which allows the majority leader of the chamber to schedule the majority or all “floor” votes.

The articles of impeachment are related to Mayorkas handling of the border crisis in the south of the United States, alleging “breach” of trust and “willful and systematic refusal to comply with law”.

McConnell must now commit to a trial, after the House passed the impeachment motion. Before the deadline for Wednesday’s press release, McConnell’s office had no comment to make. The Kentucky Republican has not made it clear whether he supports a Senate trial for impeachment.

A group of GOP Senators signed a request for formal support that was sent on Tuesday to him by a group of GOP Senators.

Just the News learned from a GOP source that there is speculation in the background, suggesting Schumer might try to refer the articles to the level of the committee and let the resolution die out, or even hold a vote on the resolution.

According to the GOP legislators who sent McConnell the letter, it is “to be seen” if Senate rules will allow Democratic leaders vote to table the two articles of impeachment. This has never happened before in U.S. History.

Mike Lee, R. Utah, who was one of the signatories to the letter, said on X that it is time to hold a Senate Trial for Mayorkas, in response to a report stating that 7.2 millions illegal immigrants entered the U.S. during Biden’s Presidency.

Lee said that the Senate had never not taken action on articles of impeachment from the House sent to the Senate.

He said that Mayorkas had facilitated the invasion of ten millions illegal immigrants. “This is not the time to ignore centuries of precedent and the Constitution.” It is never a good idea to ignore the Constitution and centuries of precedent. The Senate must hold an impeachment hearing.”

Rick Scott, R.-Fla. Sen. who was unsuccessfully running against McConnell in the GOP leadership race for 2022, stated that the Senate had a constitutional responsibility to “conduct a thorough trial after the House’s articles of impeachment against Sec. Scott, who was among the senators who signed the letter to McConnell, said that the Senate has a “constitutional responsibility to conduct a thorough trial following the House’s impeachment articles against Sec.

Scott wrote in his X account: “We must hold Mayorkas responsible for his TOTAL negligence of securing the southern border.”
