Republican Senatory Lindsey Graham says Joe Biden “deserves to be impeached” if the United States leaves any Americans or Afghan allies behind when evacuating Afghanistan.
As President Donald Trump pointed out, Biden’s botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan as “the greatest embarrassment in the history of our country.”
“What Joe Biden has done with Afghanistan is legendary,” Trump said. “It will go down as one of the greatest defeats in American history!”
“It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan,” Trump added, “along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy.”
American citizens are not the only people dealing with the devastating consequences of Biden’s incompetent and disastrous decision-making. Currently, between 10,000 and 15,000 American citizens are trapped within the borders of a country now controlled by terrorists — the Taliban.
The Taliban has reportedly set up checkpoints and they are beating people who are attempting to reach the airport in order to evacuate.
Other reports say the Taliban is going door-to-door with a “hit list” of Christians to kill. The Taliban is allegedly looking through cell phones and threatening to kill anyone who has the Bible app downloaded.
The U.K. also “faces a desperate race to evacuate 6,000 Britons and eligible Afghans amid scenes of stampeding crowds and Islamist fanatics,” the Daily Mail reports.
The British Houses of Parliament decided to hold Biden’s handling of the situation in contempt.
Senator Graham told Fox News, “If we leave any Americans behind—if we leave thousands of those Afghans who fought along our side behind bravely—Joe Biden deserves to be impeached for a higher crime and misdemeanor of dereliction of duty.”
“If we leave one American behind. If we don’t get all those Afghans who stepped up to the plate to help us out then Joe Biden, in my view, has committed a high crime and misdemeanor under the Constitution and should be impeached.”
Sec. of Defense Lloyd Austin reportedly told members of the House of Representatives that Americans are in fact being beaten by the Taliban in Kabul.
