House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) said Wednesday that he would consider impeaching President Joe Biden and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas if investigations find evidence of "impeachable malfeasance."

Republicans have already called for impeachment of Mayorkas over the border crisis.

“The best disinfectant for corruption is sunlight, transparency, and there has been none, and there’s a lot of corruption in this administration, and outside of it by the way, relating to it,” Emmer said.

Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) has already filed articles of impeachment against Biden and Mayorkas related to their handling of the border.

“It shouldn’t have been lost on anybody that Joe Biden doesn’t make one visit to the southern border until a new Republican majority is literally taking over in the House in Washington, DC," Emmer noted.

He also said Biden and Mayorkas are "directly responsible" for the more than 300 fentanyl deaths a day because the drug is getting in across the open border.
