The House GOP is now reportedly set on taking the unprecedented set of introducing articles of impeachment against current US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken after a terrorist attack on the Kabul airport resulted in the deaths of 13 US service members on Thursday.
As Fox News reports:
FIRST ON FOX: Two House Republicans are introducing articles of impeachment on Friday, arguing that Secretary of State Antony Blinken failed to properly advise the president and abandoned American interests in Afghanistan.
“Secretary Blinken has failed to faithfully uphold his oath and has instead presided over a reckless abandonment of our nation’s interests, security, and values in his role in the withdrawal of American forces and diplomatic assets from Afghanistan,” reads the articles.
They add that “[i]n direct conflict with the intelligence and advice provided by his own diplomats and the intelligence community, Secretary Blinken failed to advise and counsel the President accordingly and did not inform the Congress nor American citizens at home and abroad of the dangers.”
The move by Rep Ralph Norman, R-S.C., and Rep Andy Harris, R-Md., comes as many Republicans have called for some level of accountability for the attacks that left 13 U.S. service members dead Thursday.
In a tearful speech on Thursday afternoon Biden attempted to take full responsibility for the debacle, but will there be any actual accountability? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
