House Republicans Plan Investigation into Joe Biden's Deadly Afghanistan Withdrawal

House Republicans are reportedly laying the groundwork for an investigation into Joe Biden’s deadly withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan last year.

Ranking member on the House Oversight Committee, Rep. James Comer (R-KY), sent letters to a number of government agencies requesting documentation related to the troop withdrawal.

“It has been over a year since the Biden Administration’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal and the American people have not received any answers about this national security and humanitarian catastrophe. U.S. servicemen and women lost their lives, thousands of Americans were abandoned, billions of taxpayer dollars are still unaccounted for, military equipment fell into the hands of the Taliban, progress for Afghan women has stalled, and the entire region is under hostile Taliban control. Under a Republican majority, the Biden Administration’s obstruction of this investigation will be met with the power of the gavel,” Comer said in a statement.

The Kentucky Republican refers to emails sent by Special Investigator General for Afghanistan Reconstruction John Sopko in which he defers sending information to the Oversight Committee until the department could complete its own evaluation,

“The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) has notified this committee on multiple occasions of State’s obstruction to their congressionally requested investigations of the Afghanistan withdrawal and the continued risks to humanitarian and development assistance. This lack of cooperation raises serious questions,” Comer wrote. “What does State have to hide?”

Comer also included emails from the U.S. Agency for International Development and the Treasury Department, accusing officials of “deferring cooperation” due to “lack of jurisdiction.”

As the Washington Examiner reported:

As Republicans prepare to take control of the House next month, Comer has sent letters to the State Department, the National Security Council, the Department of Homeland Security, the Pentagon, and the USAID, requesting internal communications or any related information about the planning of the September 2021 troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The Oversight Committee is particularly interested in investigating the decision to conduct airlifts out of the Hamid Karzai International Airport and to permit the Taliban to be responsible for the airport’s security. Lawmakers will also investigate the lack of planning to help relocate refugees who were taken out of Afghanistan.

The investigation comes more than a year after the United States completed a full withdrawal of its troops from Afghanistan, airlifting more than 12,000 people out of the country as the Taliban quickly seized control of the government. The operation has been heavily scrutinized, particularly after a suicide attack outside the Hamid airport left 13 Americans and roughly 200 Afghans dead.

The investigation is one of many House Republicans plan to pursue once they take control in January next year.

Last month, Comer and Jim Jordan officially announced an investigation into Joe Biden, alleging he was directly involved in overseas business dealings alongside his son Hunter.

As The Daily Fetched reported, Comer said the Biden family “flourished and became millionaires by simply offering access to the family.”

“Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden’s business deals, and is he compromised? That’s our investigation,” Comer said.

Comer is the incoming chair of the House Oversight Committee, while Jordan is expected to chair the Judiciary Committee soon.

A real investigation? Or another Jeff Sessions/Bill Barr “investigation”?

Thank God! What Biden did was the actions of a despot, especially evident when, after the horrendous travestly, Biden said “It was a fantastic success!”.

Banana republics are not fixed, only seceded from or destroyed.
That is because courts, votes and laws are all rigged.
Until people realize that there will be no justice.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
