    The precedent is set now. Next time a Republican office-holder is impeached by a Democrat House while the GOP controls the Senate, it will likely be promptly dismissed.

    Schumer Getting Rid of Mayorkas Impeachment Could Affect Democrats

    'The Senate map is looking particularly favorable to Republicans, especially in comparison to 2022. Among the "Toss Up" races are Ohio, where Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown is running for reelection against Republican Bernie Moreno. Just like his fellow Democrats, Brown fell in line.'

    'In response to Brown referring to the impeachment effort as a "distraction," Moreno reminded that "Since Joe Biden took office, nearly 10 million people have invaded our country due to the open border policies of Biden, Mayorkas and Sherrod Brown. It isn’t a 'distraction' to demand accountability for the drugs, crime, death and destruction brought into this country because of these policies." He also insisted that "Sherrod Brown should uphold his constitutional duty and hold a full trial in the Senate for Mayorkas, otherwise it's a complete dereliction of his duty as a Senator."'

    Ohio has a clear choice in November.

    I agree. Pelosi lowered the already not too high bar something fierce for impeachment. I hope her precedent dies a quick death for our constitutional republic's sake. I am a little but not highly optimistic.
