House Republicans vow to investigate Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal if victorious in 2022
Several House Republicans are vowing to launch congressional investigations into the Biden administration’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal if they win back the majority in the 2022 midterm elections.
“This makes Benghazi look like a much smaller issue,” Rep. Mike Johnson of Louisiana said. “This may be one of the worst and most consequential foreign policy and national security disasters in our history. There will be a lot of answers to seek and questions to be answered, and I think it will be a top priority.”
Other GOP lawmakers echoed Johnson’s comparison to Hilary Clinton’s Benghazi email scandal.
“I think this is way worse than Benghazi. Without a doubt,” Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin said.
“More than a few are wondering about his competency. Republicans will be looking to investigate every aspect of how this withdrawal was botched and who is ultimately responsible,” Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana said.
