Lee Leads Call for Senate Trial on Mayorkas Impeachment

February 20, 2024


Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has led his colleagues calling for Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to demand a Senate trial for Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, noting the Senate's constitutional responsibility to conduct a thorough trial following the House's impeachment articles.


 “The Senate failed miserably to ensure our southern border was secured before sending Ukraine billions in American tax dollars,” said Sen. Mike Lee. “We cannot fail to uphold our constitutional duty and conduct an impeachment trial for Secretary Mayorkas, who has ignored his duty to protect our country. Chuck Schumer is trying to sweep this travesty under the rug by violating the constitution and foregoing a trial. Republican leadership cannot stand idly by and let him.”

The letter was signed by Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Eric Schmitt (R-MO), Rick Scott (R-FL), Ron Johnson (R-WI), J.D. Vance (R-OH), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Mike Braun (R-IN), Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), Ted Budd (R-NC), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).
