Tea Party Patriots Action Urges Senate to Give Mayorkas Legitimate Trial


“Outrageous, Unprecedented Cover-Up” is About to Take Place

Atlanta, GA – Today, the Senate will likely vote to dismiss the impeachment charges against DHS Secretary Mayorkas without holding a trial. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:

“What the Senate Democrats will do today is an outrageous, unprecedented abdication of their constitutional responsibility. Only 21 times in history has the House passed articles of impeachment. The House’s decision to impeach Secretary Mayorkas was not done flippantly, it was done after an extensive investigation of the root causes of the border crisis and Mayorkas’ role in allowing that crisis to take place and escalate.

“Yet instead of putting Mayorkas on trial, as the Constitution mandates, Senate Democrats will engage in a coverup: They do not want the public to see the evidence against Mayorkas and the gravity of the process that impeachment normally demands; they want to paint the House’s impeachment of Mayorkas as a partisan stunt not worthy of the Senate’s time. Nothing could be further from the truth. The border crisis is the number one issue facing the country, according to most public opinion polls, and for good reason — it is unprecedented in its depth and breadth. Senate Democrats are making an inexcusable choice. No Senate Republican should join them.”
