The White House plan for the Mayorkas impeachment: Ignore the drama, outsource the fight [View all]

Alejandro Mayorkas may now hold the distinction as the first Cabinet secretary to be impeached since 1876. But in the days since that House vote, the Homeland Security secretary has acted as if nothing ever happened.

That’s by design.

The White House is hoping to demonstrate that it is business as usual at DHS, eager to show that the president’s team is unfazed by the impeachment and to portray Republicans as consumed by partisan vendettas at the cost of tending to the crisis at the southern border.

“I don’t let it distract me from the work — would I have preferred that correctness had prevailed? Of course,” Mayorkas said. “So, the fact that it did not, does not, slow me down in doing the work that I’m tasked to do by the president of the United States.”
