McConnell Shoots Down GOP Calls for Biden's Impeachment Over Afghanistan in Blunt Statement

This week, President Joe Biden ended America's longest war as the last of U.S. troops were withdrawn from Afghanistan, but the occasion was marred by chaos and tragedy as the Afghan government collapsed faster than anticipated, allowing the fundamentalist Taliban regime to retake the region.

Republicans have slammed the withdrawal as tantamount to treason, citing the number of American civilians remaining in Afghanistan as the White House continues to formulate evacuation plans for them.

Some Republican elected officials, like far-right Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, have called for impeachment.

Greene filed articles of impeachment late last month and has seen multiple Republican House members agree to cosponsor the legislation, which almost certainly won't be brought to the floor.

As Americans across the country know all too well from witnessing two impeachments in as many years, the Senate is responsible for deciding whether or not to convict an impeached President.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky dashed Republicans' hopes to see Biden impeached.

Watch below.

At an event in Kentucky on Wednesday, McConnell said:

"Well, look, the President is not going to be removed from office. There's a Democratic House, a narrowly Democratic Senate. That's not going to happen. ... There isn't going to be an impeachment."

Conservatives were livid at McConnell's comments.

But with Democrats holding a narrow majority in both houses, impeachment is a nonstarter.

People were surprised McConnell got backlash for pointing this out.

Nevertheless, the MAGA crowd remains disappointed.
