Harris Faulkner visibly shocked by Mayorkas allegation: ‘This man is dangerous’

Comments reportedly made by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas about an impending impeachment were enough to visibly rattle Fox News host Harris Faulkner.

U.S. Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) was speaking to Faulkner on Monday when she described alleged eyebrow-raising remarks by Mayorkas during a closed-door meeting with members of Congress.

House Republicans are moving ahead to impeach the DHS secretary for his abject failure in handling the crisis at the southern border which House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La. ) called a “humanitarian catastrophe.”

“We’ve been asking Secretary Mayorkas since he took office, to enforce the law, to do his job, and he’s done exactly the opposite. He’s testified untruthfully before Congress, repeatedly,” Johnson said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday. “He’s stood in front of my committee on multiple occasions and insisted that the border is closed and secure when everyone in America knows it’s not true.”

Reacting to a clip of Johnson’s comments on “The Faulkner Focus,” Congresswoman Cammack sarcastically called Mayorkas “a real peach.”

“He has lied repeatedly to Congress [and] has been negligent in his duties,” she added, saying the nation’s national security “depends” on his being impeached.

Asked by Faulkner if she thought it was possible to remove Mayorkas, Cammack replied, “Absolutely. I have yet to meet one Republican- heck, I even know some Democrats that are anxious to get rid of him.”

The Florida Republican then revealed a disturbing comment Mayorkas reportedly said behind closed doors when members of Congress reminded him he was going to be impeached.

Cammack told Faulkner, “he said ‘you are not going to like who comes next.’ I asked him if that was a threat, and he smiled.”

This drew a visible shock from the Fox News host as Cammack continued, “This man is dangerous. He knows exactly what he is doing, and he is two-faced. We need to get rid of him. I hope now.”

“What did he mean ‘who comes next’?” Faulkner asked.

“Well, that was the big question,” Cammack replied, “I asked him, I said, ‘Is that a threat?’ and he just smiled. And I thought, ‘This man knows exactly what he is doing. This is 100% by design. They want an open border crisis.'”

Mayorkas, meanwhile, has taken to defending his record and refuting claims by Republicans that he has failed in securing the border and generally doing his job leading the Department of Homeland Security, insisting that the “majority of all migrants encountered at the southwest border throughout this administration have been removed, returned or expelled.”

He further claimed on Monday that “the issue of immigration is an “issue that is highly politicized,” according to The Hill.

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-Tenn.) said it is “Mayorkas’ decision-making and refusal to enforce the laws passed by Congress” that has led to the border crisis and that “his failure to fulfill his oath of office demands accountability.”

Greene is promoting a hearing Wednesday ahead of the impeachment process titled “Havoc in the Heartland: How Secretary Mayorkas’ Failed Leadership Has Impacted the States.”

“For almost three years, the American people have demanded an end to the unprecedented crisis at the Southwest border, and they have also rightly called for Congress to hold accountable those responsible,” the Republican lawmaker said in a statement.
