Republicans just passed articles of impeachment, and now Joe Biden is in the hot seat

Feb 15, 2024

Democrats and the press said it couldn’t be done.

The House GOP just proved them wrong.

And Republicans just passed articles of impeachment, and now Joe Biden is in the hot seat.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas became the first cabinet secretary impeached in over 150 years.

The House of Representatives passed two articles of impeachment on a 214-213 vote.

Three Republicans – retiring Congressmen Mike Gallagher and Ken Buck, as well as California’s Tom McClintock – voted to support the architect of Joe Biden’s open borders agenda.

But despite the betrayal by Gallagher, McClintock, and Buck, Republicans were able to impose a measure of accountability on Mayorkas for refusing to enforce immigration law and lying to Congress repeatedly about the border being secure.

The border is not secure.

More illegal aliens crossed the border during Joe Biden’s time in office than live in all but the 12 biggest states.

Republicans in the House of Representatives finally had enough and brought articles of impeachment against Mayorkas to the floor.

Retiring Colorado Republican Ken Buck was one of three sellouts who voted to support the pro-open borders by opposing the articles of impeachment against Mayorkas.

Buck on CNN

Buck continued his audition to be the next CNN or MSNBC “Republican” commentator in an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett.

Burnett asked Buck if he considered flipping his opposition to the articles of impeachment in the wake of the massive backlash he received for opposing them every step of the way.

“Did you reconsider your vote at all before tonight?” Burnett wondered. “Because you were receiving a lot of backlash. I would tune into Fox News occasionally. I would hear your name always used in vain on this particular issue. Did you reconsider at all?”

Buck wanted executives at MSNBC and CNN to know that he would be the type of “Republican” who will tell leftist audiences exactly what they want to hear when he attacked the impeachment as putting “lipstick on a pig” and a “terrible impeachment.”

“No. The reality is, the facts didn’t change in my opinion of him. I prosecuted for 25 years. I know what a high crime and misdemeanor are and I know that this doesn’t qualify. This is a policy difference,” Buck began.

“You can try to put lipstick on this pig. It is still a pig. And this is a terrible impeachment. It sets a terrible precedent. The first impeachment of Donald Trump was a bad impeachment. And we’ve got to stop this in this body, or we are going to lose our credibility with the– further lose our credibility with you the American public,” Buck added.

Buck’s retiring from Congress and reportedly wants a job in TV.

But CNN and MSNBC will only hire commentators who fit the left’s idea of what a Republican should be.

And it looks like Buck is trying to show he can fill that role with his vote against the articles of impeachment introduced by Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.

MTG calls on Senate to remove

Greene is now urging the Senate to hold a trial and remove Mayorkas from office, as he’s a threat to American sovereignty and security.

“After months of hard work, the House has finally impeached Secretary Mayorkas for his dereliction of duty & inviting the invasion of America. To the Senate: the American people demand you uphold your oath & hold a trial and remove Mayorkas for breaking federal law,” Greene declared.

Even if the Senate acquits Mayorkas – which is the likely outcome – the Senate can conduct no other business until it stages this trial.

That means Republicans will get a free shot to put Joe Biden’s open borders agenda on public trial.

And any Senate Democrat who casts a vote to acquit Mayorkas – especially Democrats running for re-election in Montana, Ohio, Arizona, Nevada, Michigan, and Pennsylvania – will put themselves squarely against the public on an issue where Joe Biden registers his highest levels of disapproval.
