U.S. Senate votes to adjourn impeachment trial of Mayorkas

Washington, Apr 18 (UNI) The U.S. Senate on Wednesday voted along party lines to adjourn the impeachment trial of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, ending the Republican-driven efforts to take down the Biden administration's top border security official.
By a vote of 51-49, the upper chamber adjourned the impeachment trial after the two articles against Mayorkas fell on constitutional points of order, as Democrats argued they did not rise to the level of "high crimes and misdemeanors."
Following the adjournment, Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who will step down in November, criticized the precedent set, saying it is not a proud day for the Senate.
