South Carolina Republican Congressman Rep. Jeff Duncan is cosponsoring articles of impeachment against Joe Biden after his disastrous handling of the Afghanistan situation.
Rep. Duncan is supporting articles that were recently introduced by Georgia Republican Congresswoman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene
“In response to the foreign policy failure in Afghanistan of President Joseph R. Biden, Congressman Jeff Duncan today co-sponsored an article of Impeachment against the President for dereliction of duty,” A press release from Rep. Duncan’s office stated on Thursday.
The Biden Administration has been proven reckless with its weak withdrawal from Afghanistan. They left billions worth of taxpayer-funded military equipment behind for the Taliban and left thousands of Americans behind. Then attempted to work with the Taliban, shared American names with the Taliban army.
Last week, two suicide bombings outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport and Baron Hotel in Kabul killed at least 90 people. This includes 13 U.S. service members and many Americans and Afghan allies.
Rep. Duncan said, “Our Commander-in-Chief showed reckless disregard for both American citizens and allies in neglecting to secure their safe evacuation from Afghanistan once he withdrew our troops. The President promised to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, but it is evident the President has failed to fulfill this charge.”
“Impeachment is a very serious matter, and one I do not take lightly. It saddens me that it has come to this, but the President’s actions have proved he is a threat to our national security and the Constitution,” He added.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene later tweeted and thanked Rep. Duncan for cosponsoring her articles of impeachment:
