‘They Should Impeach Biden For Exact Same Thing’: Daily Wire Hosts Respond To Mayorkas Impeachment

On Tuesday, hosts for The Daily Wire reacted to the Republican-led House impeaching Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over his handling of the border crisis.

Daily Wire Co-CEO Jeremy Boreing took a moment during a “Backstage” conversation on Dailywire+ to share what had just happened on Capitol Hill.

“I led the show by saying I don’t want to talk about news, but something happened since we’ve been sitting here that merits discussion,” Boreing said.

After assuring everyone that President Joe Biden is still kicking, Boreing announced that Mayorkas became the first Cabinet member since the 1800s to get impeached by the House.

Daily Wire host Michael Knowles noted the last Cabinet member to be impeached was William Belknap, the secretary of war, in 1876.

Amid some banter with Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro and the other hosts present, Knowles predicted that there are going to be “a lot of Democrats who start arguing that there’s no basis to impeach him.”

Their point of view, according to Knowles, is that Republicans are “merely impeaching him on maladministration, which is not a sufficient cause for impeachment.”

The two articles of impeachment that the House passed on Tuesday accuse Mayorkas of “willfully and systemically” refusing to comply with federal immigration laws and that he “breached the public trust” with false statements and obstructing lawful oversight of the Department of Homeland Security.

They now head to the Democrat-controlled Senate, where leadership signaled a trial will begin later this month. A two-thirds vote is required for a conviction, which would lead to removal from office.

Knowles said Belknap was impeached for “failing to fulfill his duties” as secretary. “And in this case, I would argue that Mayorkas is being criminally negligent here. He’s actually violating the law,” he added.

Some laughs ensued as host Andrew Klavan quipped about “the spirit of Aloha” — a reference to a Hawaii court ruling last week in a gun rights case — and Knowles brought the conversation back to impeachment.

“Well, they should impeach Joe Biden for the exact same thing then, because he’s Mayorkas’ boss,” Boreing said.

Daily Wire hosts Candace Owens and Matt Walsh were also part of the “Backstage” discussion.
