BREAKING: Sen. Mike Lee Brings Business to a Halt in US Senate Until Democrats Hold Impeachment Trial for DHS Secretary Mayorkas – For Deliberately Implementing Open Borders Disaster

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) on Monday promised to halt US Senate business until Democrats hold an impeachment trial for DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

For weeks now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has refused to hold the Senate trial for DHS Secretary Mayorkas.

Constitutional expert Hans Von Spakovsky recently informed Grant Stinchfield and the Real America Voice audience that holding an impeachment trial is not an option for Democrats – it’s their duty according to the US Constitution!

Hans Von Spakovsky: The Senate has a special rule that it put in place, a parliamentary rule, to handle impeachments. The rule was implemented back in the 1980s. That rule calls for a trial. There is no language in there whatsoever that simply allows a motion to dismiss and a vote on a motion to dismiss. Plus, look, the Constitution says the House votes on whether to impeach a federal official, and the Senate then is responsible for holding a trial and determining whether they are guilty or should be acquitted. There’s nothing in there about not holding a trial and simply throwing it out.

Tonight Senator Lee is holding Democrats accountable and is halting business until Democrats hold the DHS Secretary’s impeachment trial!
