House Republicans call for Afghanistan accountability and demand Biden resign

The Freedom Caucus made the first formal call for President Biden to resign

Republicans also ripped House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for not being present for either the vote or for a moment of silence for the 13 fallen service members. 

“Where is Nancy Pelosi?” Banks asked. “Why isn’t she here? Each and every one of us changed our plans so that we could be here today.”

“We just had a moment of silence on the floor of the House of Representatives for the … American heroes that we lost in Afghanistan,” he continued. “Not a single Democrat joined us on the floor of the House and that moment of silence, and that is a shame, but perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised.
