You’ll NEVER Guess What MTG Accused Swalwell of During a Hearing

In a recent report, a government watchdog has accused President Biden of failing to keep America’s commitment to resettle tens of thousands of Afghan allies left behind during the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. The report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) highlights bureaucratic dysfunction and understaffing as the key reasons for this failure.

It also identified serious risks posed by the more than $8 billion the U.S. has sent to the Afghan people since its withdrawal in August 2021. Meanwhile, the Taliban has taken control of Afghanistan, leading to a “humanitarian catastrophe.”

Inspector General John Sopko and watchdogs for the Defense and State Departments, as well as the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), are testifying to Congress Wednesday in a hearing entitled, “The Biden Administration’s Disastrous Withdrawal from Afghanistan, Part I: Review by the Inspectors General.”

Republicans have long sought to hold Biden accountable for the crisis. House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said in a statement announcing Wednesday’s hearing that the Biden administration not only continues to provide excuses for the self-inflicted humanitarian and national security catastrophe, but senior officials are also actively obstructing meaningful congressional oversight.

The White House, on the other hand, has called GOP-led attacks on its handling of Afghanistan “politically motivated” and accused Congress of neglecting to advance legislation that would expand eligibility for special immigrant visas to resettle Afghan nationals.
