“This is the phone call, instead of the one between Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, that should lead to impeachment.”
According to an explosive report from Reuters, Biden asked then-Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to lie about how things looked in the country before the withdrawal of American troops.
People are starting to call for Biden’s impeachment over this, noting that Democrats impeached Trump for less.
Miranda Devine writes at the New York Post:
Joe Biden’s call to Afghan prez is impeachable: Devine
Psst, Nancy Pelosi! Still looking for a phone call worth impeaching a president?
Do I have news for you.
Reuters has a bombshell report about a July phone call between Joe Biden and then-Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani, in which the US president promises military aid in return for lies.
The “perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things aren’t going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” says Biden in the July 23 call. “And there’s a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”
Whether it is true or not.
No, things weren’t going well, three weeks after the US abandoned Bagram Airfield in the dead of night…
“Was the president in any way pushing a false narrative in that call?” a reporter asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki Wednesday after the Reuters story broke.
“I am not going to go into the details of a private conversation,” she replied.
Hah! That sure wasn’t the Democrats’ standard when they impeached Donald Trump last year over a leaked phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Jen Psaki’s about face on this would give you whiplash. Here she is this week:

This is her on Trump in 2019:
It is not just the call transcript. The whistleblower complaint would likely have more details. We need both. And not just the call.

Why shouldn’t Biden be impeached for this?
Joe Biden asked the President of Afghanistan to LIE!
In the transcript, Biden told Ghani to say that the fight against the Taliban was going well "whether it is true or not."
The Afghan President responded, "Mr. President, we are facing a full-scale invasion…"

I mean they literally impeached the last guy because of the details of a private conversation https://t.co/I85WfpvM1h

Wow, the President of the United States had a call with a foreign leader where POTUS asked the leader to lie on his behalf, and promised military assistance if he did as he was told. Do I have that right?

On a call with Afghan President Ghani in July, Biden told him to LIE “to project a different picture” of the war.
At the same time, Biden was repeatedly LYING to the American public.
The result of Biden’s LIES was 13 brave Americans losing their lives.
HE NEEDS TO RESIGN!

Nick Arama writes at Red State:
Couple this with the story I did earlier on Biden waiving briefing Congress on the actual facts of the terrorist problem and the weakness of the Afghan army. So he’s telling the Afghans to put out a false story while stiff-arming Congress as to the real facts.
That combined to make the perfect storm for the debacle.
The White House is now refusing comment, and it’s no wonder because they deserve to get ripped apart over it. This is the phone call, instead of the one between Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, that should lead to impeachment.
Joe Biden is unfit to be Commander-in-Chief.

Last word goes to Jesse Kelly:
The GOP has always been the unilateral disarmament party. Democrats will spend four years doing everything to kneecap a GOP president and the GOP will respond by doing absolutely nothing.
There’s a reason the communists won the war for America. They were the only ones fighting. https://t.co/QhBs3mup9C
