Speaker Johnson Vows Mayorkas Will Be Impeached Despite ‘Setback’

The failed vote to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was a “setback,” but House Republicans will try again and prevail, Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) declared on Wednesday.

Johnson spoke to reporters on Capitol Hill the morning after a series of votes in which lawmakers were unable to approve impeachment articles against Mayorkas over his handling of the border crisis as well as a $17.6 billion Israel aid package.

“Last night was a setback, but democracy is messy,” Johnson said in response to a question on impeachment, noting the House GOP has a “razor thin margin” over the Democrats.
