More than 30 Republican members of Congress have called on President Joe Biden to be impeached or resign following the U.S.’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Others have also called for resignations from Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, and some have said Vice President Kamala Harris should invoke the 25th Amendment.

U.S. Capitol Building At Night

On Tuesday morning, members of the House Freedom Caucus called on Biden to resign during a press conference. Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs, who previously filed articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, led the event.

On Tuesday, Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins introduced three resolutions for resignation, one each for Biden, Blinken and Milley. 

Last week, South Carolina Rep. Ralph Norman and Maryland Rep. Andy Harris co-sponsored a resolution to impeach Blinken, also calling on Biden to resign.

On Tuesday morning, Rep. Harris detailed the reasons to impeach Blinken, adding, “we have to be sure nothing like this will ever happen again.”

While both Biden and Blinken pledged last week that “no American who wants to leave will be left behind,” between 100 and 200 Americans may still be left, according to Blinken, who spoke to the press Monday night. 

Biden addressed the nation on Tuesday afternoon, declaring an end to the war and defending his administration’s decision to withdrawal.

“I refused to send another generation of America’s sons and daughters to fight a war that should have ended long ago,” Biden said.

During the Freedom Caucus press conference earlier Tuesday, Virginian Rep. Bob Good and Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry called on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to make a motion to vacate the chair and remove Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as House speaker for dereliction of duty. 

 Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert said the American people demand accountability.

“Thirteen service members killed, $85 billion worth of military equipment abandoned … should be enough for even the weakest members of Congress to step up,” she said. “I would hope that just one Democrat could to do more than the so-called commander in chief who could only look at his watch while moms received the remains of their babies in Dover.” 

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert likened Biden’s policies to those of former president Jimmy Carter who welcomed the Ayatollah Khomeini to Iran as a man of peace. He said Americans will die as a result of the policies of the Biden administration and it will take generations for America to regain credibility in the world.

Illinois Rep. Mary Miller thanked American military members and families Tuesday for their sacrifice and called out Speaker Pelosi for not calling a hearing to investigate the Afghanistan debacle. The last hearing the House had was on windmills, she said, which is “totally disrespectful.”

She asked why the American flags at the U.S. Capitol building were not flying at half-mast. 

“We should be weeping and mourning over the direction of our country,” she said. “Where is Pelosi? Where are the House Democrats?”

Members not at the press conference previously filed articles of impeachment or have called on Biden to resign or be impeached. 

North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn sent a letter to Vice President Kamala Harris requesting that Biden be removed from office under the 25th Amendment, while Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks and Texas Rep. Brian Babin are also calling to invoke the 25th Amendment.

In response to calls for Biden’s resignation, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said, “We would expect that any American, whether they’re elected or not, would stand with us.”

    This is postering by the GOP. It accomplishes nothing, if impeached and removed, extremely unlikely, Harris would become the president with her pick of VP. This is what politics has come down to, “impeach X, Y and Z”.

    I was in the military for over 30 years. No military operation would conduct anything, no matter the size of the mission, without an exit plan and at least two backup plans. Blinken needs to step down and be prosecuted for murdering people because of his incompetence. GEN Milley needs to removed immediately from his position and prosecuted for dereliction of duty. President Biden must be impeached. Nancy pelosi needs to be removed from the House permanently. To leave people, military equipment (to include military working animals), and classified information is enough to prosecute all these people. Biden blamed President Trump for the fiasco. That’s ridiculous. Biden had no problem in reversing many of the programs and direction on his first day. He and his staff had SEVEN MONTHS to plan. My guess is the plan was being drafted when Trump decided it was time to leave Afghanistan.

    As we are approaching the anniversary of 9/11, this withdrawal was absolutely a botched and horrific experience. Americans, military equipment and nobody has mentioned how many from supporting countries have been left behind plus Afghanistan loyals. Military troops out first??? We now have thousands of Afghanis, some without papers ISIS? coming into our country, we are already loosing track of immigrants/children from our Southern Border, no parades for our troops/veterans and it’s just unbelievable that these are the people running our country are leaving us in a constant state of Chaos: Spending Trillions, rising gasoline prices, importing oil, in the middle of a Pandemic, inflation, Critical Race theory debate in our schools when Children are behind in the basics, employment figures are low, Biden never answers the press just turns and walks away…in the past 8 months he’s spent all his time undoing accomplishments or blaming the previous president.
