Democrat Senate Kills Mayorkas Impeachment Trial

Senate rejects Mayorkas impeachment charges at trial, ending GOP bid to oust him

The Senate’s 51-member Democratic majority voted to dismiss both charges as unconstitutional over the objections of Republican members. The entire proceeding lasted just three hours.

Mayorkas became just the second Cabinet secretary in U.S. history to be impeached when the House charged him in February with “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” and a “breach of public trust.” Democrats strongly opposed the impeachment effort, decrying it as a political stunt and saying the allegations constituted a policy disagreement that fell far short of the constitutional threshold for impeachment.

“We felt very strongly that we had to set a precedent that impeachment should never be used to settle policy disagreements,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Wednesday evening. “If we allowed that to happen, it would set a disastrous precedent for Congress — could throw our system of checks and balances into cycles of chaos.”

Under the Constitution, the Senate is responsible for holding a trial to determine if impeached officials are guilty and should be removed from office. The House transmitted the articles on Tuesday, and senators were sworn in as jurors Wednesday afternoon. Sen.
