Countless politicians are calling for Joe Biden to be impeached, and that list grows every day.
Lindsey Graham just joined the ranks of those calling for Biden’s removal.
Graham says that Joe Biden may be the most dishonerable Commander in Chief in modern times, due to his failure to ensure US citizens’ safety in escaping Afghanistan.
He called the swift Taliban takeover in Afghanistan a result of Biden’s “dereliction of duty,” which should lead to his impeachment.
He also warned that Biden’s actions could create conditions for another 911.
Senator Graham told Newsmax that it is time to impeach Biden, saying:
"This is the most dishonorable thing a commander in chief has done, maybe, in modern times."
Graham also warned that Biden has created conditions for another 911, just weeks before the 20 year anniversary.
Here's that story from Newsmax:
The swift Taliban takeover in Afghanistan and President Joe Biden's unconditional withdrawal this month is a "dereliction of duty" and should lead to his impeachment, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Newsmax on Tuesday night.
"I think he should be impeached," Graham told "Rob Schmitt Tonight." "This is the most dishonorable thing a commander in chief has done, maybe, in modern times. Joe Biden, for political reasons, wanted to pull all of our troops out because of the polling numbers, and what has he done?
"He's created the conditions for another 9/11. He's abandoned thousands of people who honorably and bravely fought along with us, and how do you win this war over time if you have nobody to help you over there? How do you keep it from our shores if all of us are here."
Graham told host Rob Schmitt that Biden "capitulated" to the Taliban on the Aug. 31 withdrawal deadline.
"So here's what I think: I think this is dereliction of duty at the highest level," Graham continued. "Joe Biden deserves to be impeached because he's abandoned thousands of Afghans who fought with us. He's going to abandon some American citizens because he capitulated to the Taliban's 31 August deadline.
"If I was our president of the United States, I would have told the Taliban to, 'go to hell; we're going to stay here as long as it takes to get our people out.'
"And if I were president of the United States, I would have had soldiers in Afghanistan as long as it takes to keep America safe."
Biden has endangered America's national security with the withdrawal and the border crisis, Graham added.
"I didn't think anybody could screw up the world in seven months like this," he said.
"You've got a broken border that was secured until Biden came along. You've got inflation going through the roof, [Congress] spending money like drunken sailors. Now you've got the rise of al-Qaida in Afghanistan. He pulled all of our troops out against sound military advice."
Lindsey Graham stated last week that if Biden left Americans behind in Afghanistan, he should be impeached.
Our friends at the New York Post have more on Graham's call for impeachment:
“This is dereliction of duty by the commander-in-chief,” Graham (R-SC) told Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“This makes it harder to fight future wars. Who’s going to help us in the future after we abandoned our friends in Afghanistan who fought bravely?” Graham went on.
“And the likelihood of a 9/11 is through the roof now, because Al Qaeda and ISIS are coming after us. If you believe we’ve left Afghanistan and we’ve ended the war between the US and radical Islam, you’re a fool. They’re coming after us and Joe Biden has left us naked and blind in Afghanistan.”
The senator was responding to Biden’s insistence earlier Tuesday that US forces were currently on pace to complete their evacuation mission by the end of this month. The Taliban, which swiftly retook power in Afghanistan, has called Aug. 31 a “red line” date, beyond which no American troops can remain in the country.
“The sooner we can finish, the better. Each day of operations brings added risk to our troops,” Biden said in remarks from the Roosevelt Room of the White House. “But the completion by August 31st depends upon the Taliban continuing to cooperate and allow access to the airport.”
Graham translated the president’s remarks to mean that “he is going to leave [on the] 31st August because the Taliban told him he had to get out. There is no way in hell we’re going to get all the American citizens out. We’re going to leave thousands of Afghans who fought along outside behind, and we’re setting the table for the rise of Al Qaeda and ISIS to attack us down the road.
“President Biden has signed the death warrant for thousands of Afghans who helped us,” Graham added. “He’s washing his hands of Afghanistan at our peril as a nation.”
