The theme at the Capitol this week: Congress tries again.


IN THE HOUSE, Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) is hoping for a different outcome on an impeachment vote against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.


The resolution narrowly failed last week, but with Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) returning from cancer treatment and supporting the resolution, it could pass the chamber if all else stays the same.


THE SENATE, meanwhile, is chipping away at procedural votes on a foreign aid bill with funding for Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan and more after Senate Republicans last week blocked a package that included border policy reforms, which had been in the works since before the holidays.


Another procedural vote on the $93 billion package may come Monday night, with passage in the chamber possible this week.
