A Republican congressman faces a potential primary challenge after voting against impeaching Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

House Republicans failed to impeach Mayorkas, with some Republicans voting with Democrats.

Gallagher of Wisconsin defended his vote, stating that Mayorkas’ incompetence doesn’t meet the impeachment threshold.

“Mike Gallagher’s political career should be over. We will work with the patriots in Wisconsin’s 8th district to primary him. Just like Lankford, we have no room for these people who cover for traitors like Mayorkas,” Charlie Kirk said.

“Secretary Mayorkas has faithfully implemented President Biden’s open border policies and helped create the dangerous crisis at the southern border,” Gallagher said.

“But the proponents of impeachment failed to make the argument as to how his stunning incompetence meets the impeachment threshold Republicans outlined while defending former President Trump,” he said.

He argued that impeachment would not resolve the border crisis and would set a dangerous precedent.

“I disagree with my Republican colleagues who voted on Tuesday to impeach Mr. Mayorkas. Impeachment not only would fail to resolve Mr. Biden’s border crisis but would also set a dangerous new precedent that would be used against future Republican administrations,” Gallagher wrote.

“It was a rushed, hyperpartisan process that lowered the bar for what constitutes an impeachable offense. Republicans rightly railed against this effort and the dangers of a single-party impeachment, impeachment for unpopular decisions, impeachment for non-criminal acts, and impeachment for not complying with congressional subpoenas,” he wrote.

Gallagher urged Republicans to reject the rushed, hyperpartisan impeachment efforts and learn from past mistakes.

“Republicans should reject the Pelosi precedent. Creating a new, lower standard for impeachment, one without any clear limiting principle, wouldn’t secure the border or hold Mr. Biden accountable. It would only pry open the Pandora’s box of perpetual impeachment.”
