Lankford Issues Statement on Schumer’s Move to Stop Secretary Mayorkas Impeachment Trial

WASHINGTON, DC — Senator James Lankford (R-OK) today issued the following statement after Majority Leader Chuck Schumer raised points of order that the Articles of Impeachment for Secretary Mayorkas are unconstitutional:

“Leader Schumer set a terrible precedent today by alleging that the Articles of Impeachment against DHS Secretary Mayorkas are unconstitutional. What is actually inconsistent with the Constitution is Leader Schumer refusing to hold a trial. The House of Representatives impeached the Secretary—that means the Senate is required to hold a trial. There have been 22 impeachments in the history of our nation, and this is the first to ever have been determined to be unconstitutional. Senator Schumer and Democrats want to ignore the House and the actions they have taken because they refuse to acknowledge the chaos at our southern border.”
