What Mitch McConnell Said About A Biden Impeachment Says Everything About Him!

The GOP in the U.S. Congress continues to clamor for President Joe Biden to be impeached over his disastrous Afghanistan policies that had left the South Asian country in chaos, making thousands of Afghan allies afraid for their lives and now leaving at least hundreds ofAmericans stranded in a nation now ruled by the Taliban.

However, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) on Wednesday denied calls from his fellow Republicans to boot Biden from the White House, according to the National Review.

What is Happening?

Calls continue to ring out from Republicans in both the House and the Senate to impeach the president for the terrible way that he handled the withdrawal from Afghanistan and how it played out on televisions throughout the world during the last three weeks.

This means that American allies now feel betrayed.

This means that our Afghan friends have been abandoned.

This also means that U.S. citizens have been left behind.

.Terror groups continue to gain power, and all the while the Taliban continues to enjoy the military hardware spoils that resulted from this quick and hasty American evacuation.

In the minds of many Republicans that alone is enough to justify them removing Biden from office.

However, leave it to Mitch McConnell to be a wet blanket, because he is now saying that removing Biden from power is never going to happen while he has his own position.

Now, it could be a possibility that Mitch McConnell is just doing the math. It could be some sort of political calculation on his part. Whatever it might be, this GOP leader in the upper chamber has decided against heeding these calls to hold impeachment hearings against President Biden.

Mitch McConnell has faced some questions during an event last Wednesday regarding whether the president’s mishandling of the Afghanistan impeachment would justify impeachment and whether the Kentucky senator would even back the move at all.

In short, he answered by saying that the president was “not going to be removed from office.”

“There’s a Democratic House, a narrowly Democratic Senate. That’s not going to happen,” he said, adding, “There isn’t going to be an impeachment.”

So what does Mitch McConnell believe is the right answer for holding President Biden and his party accountable?

Elections.

“The report card you get is every two years,” McConnell said. “I think the way these behaviors get adjusted in this country is at the ballot box.”

Considering that Mitch McConnell would like to regain the title of Senate Majority Leader, he is optimistic: “I do think we’re likely to see a typical kind of midterm reaction to a new administration. … Typically there is some buyer’s remorse.”

McConnell is not the only member of the GOP congressional leadership who has elected not to back recent calls for impeachment, according to the National Review. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA) is not jumping on board either. Instead, he keeps saying that the best way to approach it is to launch investigations into the Afghanistan withdrawal if Republicans are able to take control of the House next year. McCarthy said that would be a “day of reckoning” and it definitely should be.
