U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky says President Biden will not be impeached over his withdrawal from Afghanistan, despite calls from some Republican colleagues.
Speaking in his home state on Thursday, McConnell urged voters to hold the president accountable in next fall’s mid-term elections.
During a stop in Glasgow, the Senate minority leader called President Biden’s withdrawal and evacuations from Afghanistan "incompetent." McConnell noted Congress is run by Democrats and said voters angry with Biden should respond at the polls.
“I think the president needs to be held to account, and of course the way we have accountability in this country is called elections, and they’ll be an election next fall," stated McConnell. "Typically, the election two years into any administration, is a referendum on how they’re doing.”
