House Republicans introduce articles of impeachment against Blinken

2 Republicans have introduced articles of impeachment against Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Rep Norman (R-SC) and Rep Andy Harris (R-MD) introduced the articles, citing Blinken’s failures in leadership over the crisis in Afghanistan.

“Secretary Blinken has failed to faithfully uphold his oath and has instead presided over a reckless abandonment of our nation’s interests, security, and values in his role in the withdrawal of American forces and diplomatic assets from Afghanistan,” the articles state.

Norman in a statement provided to Fox News “Under the Constitution of the United States of America, the Secretary of State is tasked with informing Congress and American citizens on the conduct of U.S. foreign relations.”

“In Afghanistan, he failed to do so, leaving American citizens exposed in a city under the control of the Taliban. Secretary Blinken is also responsible for the safety of American citizens abroad and, in the case of danger, the safe and efficient evacuation of those Americans – which he has not done thus far,” Norman added.
