The walls are closing in on President Joe Biden.
Failure of leadership in an unprecedented fashion has brought calls for his impeachment to the front and center of the national political debate.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, and a noted friend of Biden, called the past month a dereliction of duty and doubled down on a request to impeach the President.
“Did [Biden] get good advice and turn it down? Did he get bad advice and take it? What the hell happened? Whose decision was it to pull all the troops out? Was it good advice, ignored? I just don’t know,” said Graham. “I think he should be- be facing a lot of consequences here, because the one thing he wanted to do, and he’s a decent man, it’s not about him being a decent man, is he wanted to end the war in Afghanistan and make sure we didn’t have to deal with it in the future. He’s done the exact opposite.”
There may be spin coming from the White House and media, but Graham said the blame is on Biden.
“Biden’s fingerprints are all over this,” said Graham. “He’s created the conditions for ISIS to flourish in Afghanistan. They’ve doubled the number of troops available because of the jailbreak. A terrorist organization called the Taliban is now in charge of the country. The likelihood of an attack on our homeland is through the roof. It was medium a month ago. It’s got to be high as hell right now.”
Then, when Graham was asked if Biden should be impeached, his answers was clear:
Yeah. I think it’s dereliction of duty to leave hundreds of Americans behind enemy lines, turn them into hostages, to abandon thousands of Afghans who fought honorably along our side, to create conditions for another 9/11 that are now through the roof. Yeah, I think he’s been derelict in his duties as commander-in-chief. I don’t think he got bad advice and took it. I think he ignored sound advice. And this is Joe Biden being Joe Biden. He’s been this way for 40 years, but now he’s the Commander-in-Chief. He’s not a senator. He’s not the vice president. These are Commander-in-Chief decisions. I think the best you could describe him as dereliction of duty at the highest level says.
