House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) says he is disappointed that Senate Democrats dismissed the articles of impeachment against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Wednesday.

In a party-line vote, the Senate decided not to send Mr. Mayorkas to trial after he was impeached by the House. Mr. Johnson called the dismissal “shameful,” stating that he believes American citizens deserved the opportunity to see the evidence and evaluate Mr. Mayorkas’s performance for themselves. “My evaluation is he’s probably the least effective and, I think, most dangerous in terms of his policy implementations, of any cabinet secretary in the history of the United States. And if there’s ever been a cabinet secretary that deserved to be impeached, he is that.”
