Senator Schmitt Statement on Impeachment Proceedings of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Eric Schmitt released a statement on the impeachment proceedings of Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas: 

“Today, Senator Schumer and Senate Democrats just bulldozed hundreds of years of precedent to shelter one of the worst cabinet members in history, Secretary Mayorkas. The Senate is obligated to hold a full impeachment trial, and I fought on the floor to get that full trial. Mayorkas is responsible for the worst crisis at the Southern Border in American history, full stop. Senator Schumer and Senate Democrats diminished the institution of the Senate today and set ablaze the Constitution and long-standing precedent. When Joe Biden and the Democrat Party talk about threats to democracy, they need to take a good long look in the mirror,” said Senator Eric Schmitt.
