U.S. Rep. Lisa McClain (R-Bruce Twp.) has joined a handful of Republicans in co-sponsoring a concurrent resolution condemning and censuring President Joe Biden for what she calls his “horrific lack of leadership” and “catastrophic failures in Afghanistan.”
The resolution is sponsored by U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-N.J.). Other co-sponsors are: Reps. Jim Banks (R-IN), Bill Posey (R-Fla.), Carlos Gimenez (R-FL), Tom Rice (R-S.C.), Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), Marianette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa), David Rouzer (R-N.C.), Chris Smith (R-N.J.), Eric Crawford (R-Ark.), Tracey Mann (R-Kan.) and Barry Moore (R-Ala.).
Last week, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) announced she was filing articles of impeachment against Biden over the Afghanistan withdrawal.
“I believe in firing people when they’re corrupt and they do a bad job,” Greene said. “Joe Biden is failing America and he needs to be impeached.”
Former President Donald Trump, who negotiated the United States’ withdrawal from Afghanistan, was impeached twice. The first was in December 2019 over allegations he improperly pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rival in an effort to interfere with the 2020 U.S. presidential election. The second time was in January 2020 for instigating the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol insurrection.
The U.S. Senate voted twice to acquit Trump.
