Romney Statement on Mayorkas Impeachment

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) today released the following statement regarding the impeachment proceedings of Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas:

“While I share the House’s outrage over the President’s disastrous border policies, and I ultimately do not believe his cabinet Secretary’s implementation of those policies meets the Constitution’s test of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ I voted against the Schumer points of order because it was important to engage in some level of debate. It was a mistake for Senate Democrats to set a new precedent of disposing of the Articles of Impeachment without any evaluation whatsoever.”
