Jeffries deflects question of personal plea to Al Green on Mayorkas impeachment vote

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries declined to specify whether he made a personal plea for Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) to leave his hospital bed to oppose the ultimately unsuccessful impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

“He made it clear to me that it was important for him to be present to cast a vote against the sham impeachment,” Jeffries said at his weekly press conference, in response to a question about a specific ask to Green.

Jeffries also said his party didn’t advise House Republicans about their attendance situation. “It’s not our responsibility to let House Republicans know which members will or will not be present on the House floor,” he said.

The impeachment effort against Mayorkas ultimately failed 214-216, with a handful of GOP nos joining all Democrats. Republicans have vowed to try again once Majority Leader Steve Scalise returns from cancer treatments.
