Scalise in ‘complete remission’ and will return to House for Mayorkas impeachment

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) is in remission after completing cancer treatment and is expected to return to the House this week as lawmakers prepare for their second attempt to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Scalise is in “complete remission” nearly six months after being diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer, in August. The majority leader has been absent from the House over the last month to continue receiving treatment but announced last week he would be returning to Capitol Hill.

“Leader Scalise has successfully completed his autologous stem cell treatment and has been medically cleared to resume travel,” Scalise’s office said in a statement on Thursday. “He is in complete remission and will be returning to Washington next week for votes. He is thankful for his positive prognosis, and for the support of his medical team, family, colleagues, and fellow Louisianans.”

His return comes as lawmakers are set to reconvene on Tuesday and once again consider an impeachment resolution to charge Mayorkas with high crimes and misdemeanors over his handling of the southern border. That resolution is up for a vote as early as Tuesday, according to a whip notice sent to lawmakers last week.
