Over 50 GOP Lawmakers Demand The Resignation Of Joe Biden

A long list of GOP politicians are calling for President Biden to either be impeached or resign from office after the deadly attacks near Harmid Karzai International Airport in Afghanistan.

Nearly two dozen House and Senate Republicans on Thursday called for President Joe Biden to resign or be removed over a terrorist attack in Kabul that killed at least a dozen U.S. service members, as tensions between Biden and Republicans in Congress have worsened amid the U.S. withdrawal of troops from the region.

Nikki Haley, former ambassador to the United Nations, called for Biden’s resignation — but expressed concern about leaving Vice President Kamala Harris in charge.

“Should Biden step down or be removed for his handling of Afghanistan? Yes,” she tweeted. “But that would leave us with Kamala Harris which would be ten times worse. God help us.”

Sens. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), both frequent Biden critics, issued statements on Thursday calling on Biden to resign, with Blackburn also calling for Vice President Kamala Harris and other Cabinet officials to step down as well.

At least 20 House Republicans called for Biden to resign or be impeached on Thursday, including Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.), who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump in January and now faces a dozen pro-Trump primary challengers.

Others calling for Biden’s resignation are Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), the No. 3 Republican in the House, and Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.), a swing district congresswoman.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), who has been pushing for impeachment since Biden took office and recently introduced three more impeachment resolutions, also blasting out a campaign fundraising email on Thursday from the “Joe Biden Impeachment Committee.”

Others stopped just short of calling for Biden to resign: Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) said Biden should “resign immediately” if he doesn’t “face the American people” and “address questions on how we will respond to this massacre,” which he did Thursday evening.

Prior to Thursday’s attack, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. had already said Biden said he favored impeaching Biden.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., called for Biden to resign along with Vice President Kamala Harris and several national security officials.

“Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Antony Blinken, Lloyd Austin and General Milley should all resign or face impeachment and removal from office,” she said.

In another tweet, he added: “There will be time for investigations and assigning blame later, but we do need a new Commander-in-Chief NOW! The leadership that got us into this does not have the competence and will to get us out. People are now officially dying!!”

Reps. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., and Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., similarly issued strongly worded statements calling for accountability. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., said Biden was unfit to be commander in chief. “Joe Biden has blood on his hands. The buck stops with the President of the United States,” she said.

“Joe Biden must resign or face impeachment,” said Tenney.

Donalds tweeted: “[Biden] has abdicated his responsibility and duties entrusted to him as POTUS, and he must RESIGN IMMEDIATELY.”

GOP lawmaker Rep. Jim Jordan also lent his voice to call for President Joe Biden to resign over the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

“What happened in Afghanistan was wrong. It was terrible. But frankly, it wasn’t surprising because what has this guy done right?” ordan said, speaking on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on Saturday. “Everything this guy touches, it goes bad. That’s why I said he should resign.”

“Thirteen service members killed, Americans left behind, allies left behind, billions of dollars of equipment and weapons left behind. And some of the Afghans who have come to America haven’t been properly vetted,” he added.
