After a week of congressional hearings with Secretary of State Antony Blinken, President Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan looks worse than ever. Sara Carter broke down the highlights from Blinken’s statements on the latest episode of the Sara Carter Show.

First, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) wanted to know how many Americans were left behind. “How many of them approximately, you say we don’t know the exact number. But how many legal permanent residents are we convinced are still in Afghanistan?” Romney asked.

“We don’t we don’t have an exact number,” Blinken replied.

“A round number,” the Utah senator pushed.

“But it’s in the 1000’s,” Blinken admitted. This in itself was a revelation because the White House previously denied anyone was stranded. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki flat out rejected the notion during a press conference.

“First of all, I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded,” Psaki said at the time. “They are not.”

As a result of Blinken’s statement on abandoned Americans, Carter blasted the Biden administration.

“I was thinking to myself, this administration doesn’t even care about American citizens. They’d probably be grateful if I went into Panjshir. They would probably be happy if I disappeared somewhere in Panjshir,” Carter said. “But I for sure know that this government, my government would do nothing for me. They abandoned Americans, they abandoned green card holders. They abandoned people with visas.”

Then on Monday, veteran Jean Marie Thrower verified Blinken’s estimate on America’s Newsroom. She personally stayed behind the U.S. military’s August 31st deadline as a volunteer. Therefore she saw first hand that there are about 1,000 Americans still in Afghanistan.

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
