Romney Hints He May Vote With Democrats to Save Mayorkas

Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) reportedly expressed his willingness to dismiss articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, on the condition that a debate takes place.

In a story published on Tuesday by Stef W. Kight and Stephen Neukam, it was stated that Romney expressed his willingness to align his vote with his Democratic colleagues in the Senate in order to halt the significant impeachment process initiated by House Republicans.

Nevertheless, although he harbored doubts as to whether the claims reached the level of constitutional significance, Romney firmly advocated for a discussion, even if it were to be brief, to address the charges.

“I don’t believe there’s a constitutional standard met. But at the same time, I think the Senate should give a chance for debate, even if it’s limited to two hours.” Romney said subjectively.

“So if there’s a motion just to table without any discussion, that’s something I would oppose. If there’s a provision that allows debate, it’s something I’d be open to.” he continued.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has openly expressed his opposition to the impeachment proceedings driven by political motives, but has not yet articulated his intended course of action.

A two-thirds majority is required to convict an impeached individual, and given the current Democratic majority in the Senate, it is exceedingly improbable that such a vote will occur.

Given the potential for bipartisan opposition, the likelihood is further diminished.
