    Republicans Could Set Their Sights on Impeaching Someone Other Than Biden

    Published on

    There is considerable work to be done now that Republicans are in majority control of the U.S. House of Representatives and will shortly take over strong House committees with subpoena authority.

    Republicans are anticipated to begin a series of investigations that could ultimately result in impeachment proceedings, but not automatically against President Joe Biden, given the party gridlock that will probably impede any big legislative victories, according to USA Today.

    Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of homeland security, would probably be on the top of the list for possible future impeachment targets since Republicans are likely to place a significant amount of emphasis on the southern border crisis to ascertain how precisely it devolved into the catastrophe that it is today.

    And, at least temporarily, Republicans are significantly more likely to garner enough votes to convict Mayorkas than Biden.

    Setting the stage for a potential Mayorkas impeachment trial is being led by Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs. In August 2021, the representative from Arizona referred a resolution to the House Judiciary Committee that stated as such.

    The Washington Times reports that Biggs reiterated that statement in September as the number of unauthorized border crossings continued to soar to dreadful heights.

    Biggs’ 2021 goal has undoubtedly been neglected for the past 12 months, along with many others. But it’s almost certain that Republicans will start sweeping off the dust when they take over in January 2023.

    The Texas Tribune claims that a number of influential Senate Republicans, including Texas Senator Ted Cruz and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, will help House Republicans in their efforts to impeach Mayorkas.

    The two Republican senators wrote the DHS secretary a letter accusing him of “gross dereliction of duty” in October in reference to the appalling conditions at the southern border.

    In their letter, they stated that “These astronomically high numbers are due in no small part to the political decision to rescind a number of President Trump’s policies that were stemming the flow of illegal aliens and illicit drugs across the southern border.”

    “Withdrawing the Remain in Mexico policy, ending Title 42 expulsions, terminating border wall construction contracts, and countless other decisions, coupled with your own lax border policies, act as ‘pull’ factors that have encouraged millions of aliens to undertake the dangerous journey to the U.S.-Mexico border.”

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    The two also slammed Mayorkas for essentially allowing Mexican drug cartels free reign to move large quantities of ultra-deadly narcotics across the border, such as fentanyl, which continues to kill thousands of Americans.

    Even with a super team of Republicans from both chambers going after Mayorkas and others in the Biden administration, successful impeachment convictions are still a stretch, given that Democrats will likely protect their own at all costs.

    But as many have pointed out, the optics of an impeachment trial and the information gleaned in the process will at least serve as a method to inform the entire American public as to how bad things indeed are, as one could argue that anyone who doesn’t watch Fox News might not be fully aware of how absurd the crisis has become.
