Here Are the Four Republicans Who Voted Against Impeaching Mayorkas

The U.S. House vote to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas failed narrowly on Tuesday, with four Republicans voting with Democrats.

In a 214-216 vote, the House failed to take up the resolution to impeach Mayorkas. There were four Republican “No” votes: California Rep. Tom McClintock, Colorado Rep. Ken Buck, Wisconsin Rep. Mike Gallagher and Utah Rep. Blake Moore.

Moore voted “No” at the last second so House Republicans could bring up the vote again, since a 215-215 vote wouldn’t have allowed that.

“Secretary Mayorkas will be remembered as the worst Secretary of Homeland Security in history. While inexcusable, this incompetence is not constitutional grounds for an impeachment,” Buck tweeted Monday.

After the vote, Greene released a statement about Moore’s vote:

“Blake Moore changed his vote no when asked by leadership for procedural reasons to make a motion to reconsider so that we can vote on impeachment again next week. We look forward to Leader Steve Scalise returning to vote yes and officially impeaching Secretary Mayorkas,” Greene said on Twitter.

WATCH:

The resolution was originally introduced by Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

In November, the House voted 209-201 to refer articles of impeachment against Mayorkas to committee, with eight Republicans voting with Democrats to prevent a full House vote on the resolution.

Greene then reintroduced the resolution to impeach Mayorkas later in November.

    Hakeem Jeffries is on the news right now lying through is teeth about the border. Here is a good one for ya, he just said that Trump is telling the Republicans to not vote for this bill so it can be a topic for the election. So what about the last 3 years of the open border? Was that Trumps fault too? So the extreme “my way or the highway” approach by the republicans is hurting the country!
    They are throwing MTG under the bus too. The bill has been blocked as of right now. The Dems are losing their minds. If the Dems really wanted to fix the border, they would have never stopped construction on day one of Biden’s presidency. If they are so worried about it now, why don’they just do it?

    3 RINOS owned by their corporate donors to do their bidding for slave labor. Buck however is pure Communist. He is a traitor to America.

  • True Patriot says:

    another example of why the repulican party can not win anything, simply because they are not united as one. They can’t agree on anything, which demonstrates just how much of a cluster fuck it would be if they did gain control of both the senate and house let alone the presidency. Did you notice that not one democrat broke ranks and voted for it.
