Offering yet another reminder of just how badly mismanaged the war in Afghanistan actually was, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that “there isn’t going to be an impeachment” of President Joe Biden over the botched withdrawal of US troops and civilians from Afghanistan.
McConnell’s remarks came nearly a week after a suicide bombing attack outside the Kabul Airport killed more than a dozen Marines and wounded nearly 200 people (mostly Afghans). ISIS-K, the organization that claimed responsibility for the deadly explosion, is known as Islamic State Khorasan or ISIS-K. Here’s more according to CNN.
“I think the way these behaviors get adjusted in this country is at the ballot box,” said McConnell at an event in Pikeville, Kentucky. “The President is not going to be removed from office with a Democratic House and a narrowly Democratic Senate. That’s not going to happen.”
Some Republicans, including Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn, Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, have since said that the President should resign or face impeachment.
