McCarthy Responds to Calls for Biden’s Impeachment: “There Will be a Day of Reckoning”


Several GOP members of Congress are calling for Joe Biden’s resignation.

During a news conference on Friday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was asked directly whether or not he would back the growing GOP push to impeach Biden.

McCarthy did not directly answer the question, but his response spoke volumes.

MacCarthy told reporters: “I’m extremely frustrated with this president.”

He added:

“There will be a day of reckoning.”

McCarthy was responding to the many ongoing calls for Biden's impeachment.

Here's more on what he had to say via Fox News:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., left open the possibility that Republicans would seek to impeach President Biden over his handling of the troop withdrawal in Afghanistan that cost at least 13 American service members their lives.

Already several Republicans in Congress have publicly called for Biden's resignation or impeachment surrounding the deadly suicide bombing attack at the Kabul airport Thursday.

At a news conference Friday, McCarthy sidestepped a direct question on whether he backs those efforts, but signaled the president will be held accountable at some point.

"I'm extremely frustrated with this president," McCarthy told reporters at the Capitol.

"There will be a day of reckoning," he added.

The Hillwith more:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) declared Friday that "there will be a day of reckoning” for President Biden following a suicide bombing in Kabul, Afghanistan that killed 13 U.S. service members and dozens of Afghan civilians.

However, the minority leader did not join calls from many of his rank-and-file Republicans for the commander in chief to resign or be impeached.

“Look, I’m extremely frustrated with the president. As I said, if you want to be president of the free world, you have to have the trust, faith and confidence of the American public. President Biden lost that yesterday,” McCarthy told reporters in a news conference in the Capitol.

“There will be a day of reckoning,” he added.

But given Biden’s Aug. 31 deadline to pull all U.S. troops out of the country, McCarthy said the focus should now be squarely on bringing Americans safely home from Afghanistan.

“Right now in the next five days, everyone's responsibility should only be focused on getting the Americans,” McCarthy said. “When that day passes, you can take up anything to hold accountable for the actions that have been taken, the lies that have been given, the mis-decisions that have put Americans in harm's way, and a decision to leave Americans behind."

“That choice, that answer,” he said, should have "never been given [by] a president.”

McCarthy has been extremely critical of Joe Biden for Afghanistan.

McCarthy says that Biden has lost the trust and confidence of the American people:

"To be commander in chief, you need the faith, the trust, and the confidence of the American public. President Biden lost all three of those yesterday."

McCarthy is demanding that the Biden Administration answer for their actions.

McCarthy: "He's(Biden) brought us back to the 70s"

Enough is enough...

Joe Biden has failed, and he knows it.

His costly failures have cost American lives.

He must be impeached.
