    The Biden administration is on the brink of impeachment proceedings.

    On Friday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) confirmed it has hired a law firm to aid in responding to the potential GOP House-led impeachment of Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

    According to reports from The Hill, the contract, signed with New-York based firm Debevoise & Plimpton, comes a week after a second article of impeachment was filed by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.).

    “The Department of Homeland Security has retained outside counsel to help ensure the Department’s vital mission is not interrupted by the unprecedented, unjustified, and partisan impeachment efforts by some Members of Congress, who have already taken steps to initiate proceedings,” a DHS spokesperson said in a statement.

    “DHS will continue prioritizing its work to protect our country from terrorism, respond to natural disasters, and secure our borders while responding appropriately to the over 70 Congressional committees and subcommittees that have oversight of DHS.” 

    DHS doesn’t have any staff on hand with expertise in such a matter, an agency official told The Hill, and said the scale of legal assistance needed will depend on how the GOP decides to proceed with its probe. Still, the department declined to outline other financial details of the retainer.

    Republicans have yet to take any action on the resolutions, but House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other Republican leaders have pledged what could be lengthy investigations ahead of an eventual impeachment.

    The impeachment of Cabinet officials is rare and hasn’t occurred since 1876.

    1. JUST GOVERNMENT CROOKS USING PUBLIC MONEY TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AGAINST THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES. PUBLIC MONEY TO PROVE CRIMES AGAINST AMERICANS. PUBLIC MONEY TO DEFEND DHS AND ITS CROOKED EMPLOYEES. DHS HAS ATTORNEYS ON STAFF THE SUE THE STATES IF THEY DON’T COMPLY WITH THIER MANDATES BUT THEY WON’T USE THEM IN THEIR EMPLOYEE DEFENSE. WE NEED TO DEFUND THE DHS ENTIRELY TO STOP THIS CORRUPTION.

    2. Who gave DHS authorization to hire a law firm to aid an appointed government employee paid by taxpayers also’ The said person should be fired for dereliction of duty, and aiding and abetting criminal collusion. pension denied

    3. Are we f***d up or what. This bald crazy bastard is just running away with crazy policy that makes no since. What authority, might reign this in. I do not know. I have had a few animals turn on me in years past. I had a green broke philly go crazy on me and break my right knee. That is what this feels like to me now. These insane people are tearing the county apart. And I don’t know if there is really an agenda? It is so crazy, I think now it must be the works of the Anti-Christ. That is the only thing that makes since with the data we have accumulated. It Seems nothing we are told is true. Yet, the facts are right in front of us……. J6, I personanaly saw footage of people orderly being invited into the capitol by Capitol Police. It was on CSPAN!! I saw them removing barricades and waving people in. With all of the servalience technology we have, why has this type of evidence been ignored. And bow, don’t let us go down the Biden rabbit hole. It is all there, right in front of our faces. Yet, no one seems to care. I do not get it. But I have to believe that God is watching. This terrible mess may be cleaned up. I don’t know by whom. It may be by some champions that God appoints. Or, perhaps, by folks like you and me. I do not know….. However, what I do believe, is something has to break. I do not know who will win.

    4. This dam traitor, Mayorkas is a communist, he doesn’t care anything about the border.In fact,he has been smuggling thousands across the border with no one knowing.He has broken every immigration law on the books, by keeping our border patrol,ICE,and all others occupied, so more can cross the border.This administration is keeping them from doing their job and endangering all of us,We need to stop this now,we can’t absorb all these people, it’s just more people on poverty and stuggling to survive.These people from all over the world can’t just ajust to our way of life.Hidenbiden needs to get front of the world and tell them this border is closed,or they will keep coming,and more keep dying.I’m done with this,this border needs to be shut down,no what hidenbiden says,he mentally unfit,to be giving any kind of orders,or strategic orders, to get us nuked, for his incompetent, actions. Lord save us all,from this lying,senile,frail,old, fake,phony,puppet fool.

    5. I watched AOC get all upset in Congress about wasting the taxpayers time and money regarding investigating Hunter Biden. Does she not realized what the Dems did to us for 4 years investigating Trump with impeachments and kangaroo court hearings? Get use to it baby!

    6. Totally agree – no Dept. within the government should be allowed to hire an attorney to protect the head of their dept. from congress. All departments and their heads answer to Congress and or any committee investigating them set up by congress.
