Although many Republicans are calling for President Joe Biden to be impeached for his handling of the American withdrawal from Afghanistan, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is dismissing that possibility.
“President Joe Biden will not be impeached or removed from office for his handling of the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday,” according to the Daily Caller. [emphasis added]
“Numerous Republicans in both the House and Senate have called for Biden to either resign or face impeachment. Biden has faced harsh criticism for his handling of the withdrawal, which left more than 100 U.S. citizens stranded in Afghanistan under Taliban rule, along with tens of thousands of Afghan allies and refugees… [emphasis added]
“‘Well, look, the president is not going to be removed from office. There’s a Democratic House, a narrowly Democratic Senate. That’s not going to happen,’ McConnell said at an event in Kentucky. ‘There isn’t going to be an impeachment.‘ [emphasis added]
“‘The report card you get is every two years. I think the way these behaviors get adjusted in this country is at the ballot box,’ McConnell added. ‘I do think we’re likely to see a typical kind of midterm reaction to a new administration. … Typically there is some buyer’s remorse.’”
