Republican Rep. Brian Mast, a U.S. veteran who served his country in Afghanistan and who now serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, stated that President Joe Biden has betrayed his country and should be removed from office for “treason.”
Mast argued that Biden’s claim that no one saw the Taliban taking over the country as fast as they did was a lie, further accusing Biden of only being concerned with how the situation would make him and his administration look.
Mast also criticized the president over his July phone call with the president of Afghanistan where Biden reportedly encouraged Afghanistan’s president to change the perception of what was happening on the ground regarding the Taliban, whether it was true or not.
“Impeachment is absolutely something that should be considered. I would say no less than 10,000 counts of reckless endangerment, all of the American lives over there that’s the minimum, which is actually a real crime,” Mast said.
“Beyond that, as I’ve said already, I think we absolutely need to look at what is the truth about this phone call with the former Afghan president.”
“We know for a fact that the Taliban is the sworn enemy of the United States of America,” Mast continued. “We are still in the midst of the war on terror, and as I said, I would absolutely consider the manipulation of intelligence, giving aid and comfort to the enemy, all three of those things are part of what meets the constitutional definition of treason.”
“You look at President Biden, and I would say these two things about him. He is hollow. His decisions are empty. They are void of wisdom in their entirety and across the board, we see a naïveté to the aggressors he’s dealing with,” Mast later added.
“Maybe there is an element of dementia there that we might hear about in years to come. But I would say at a minimum: This man appears to be schizophrenic with the statements that he’s making in front of one camera and the way that they’re directly changing in front of a camera on a different day or the day after that or what his members of his cabinet are saying. There’s definitely got to be schizophrenia there.”
Biden’s botched handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal has seen him suffer tremendously in the polls. Recent surveys indicate that the majority of Americans disapprove of the job he has done as president.
His approval numbers among independents has perhaps been the most troubling thing for him and his fellow Democrats. The President saw a double digit drop since the last poll – falling to only 36 percent approval among independents.
The chaotic presidency may be setting the Democrats up for a disastrous scenario in 2022 and Republicans look to retake the Senate and take control of the House – using Joe Biden as proof the Democrats in charge do more harm than good.
