Republican Afghanistan Veteran: Biden’s Actions Meet ‘Constitutional Definition Of Treason’

On Sunday, Republican Congressman Brian Mast, who fought in Afghanistan and now serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said that President Joe Biden’s actions involving that country amount to “treason” and he should be removed from office.

Mast made his comments during an interview on Fox News.

Mast: ‘Impeachment Is Absolutely Something That Should Be Considered’

Mast’s reasoning includes how quickly the Taliban retook Afghanistan, Biden being more worried about optics than national security, and also the controversial July phone call in which Biden reportedly encouraged Afghanistan’s president to change the perception of what was happening.

The president reportedly told the Afghan leader he didn’t care if the narrative he came up with was true or not.  

Reuters reported that Biden said, “I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban. And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”

Mast believes some and perhaps all of these are impeachable offenses.

“Impeachment is absolutely something that should be considered,” Mast told Fox News. “I would say no less than 10,000 counts of reckless endangerment, all of the American lives over there that’s the minimum, which is actually a real crime.”

Mast continued, “Beyond that, as I’ve said already, I think we absolutely need to look at what is the truth about this phone call with the former Afghan president.”

“We know for a fact that the Taliban is the sworn enemy of the United States of America,” Mast added. “We are still in the midst of the war on terror, and as I said, I would absolutely consider the manipulation of intelligence, giving aid and comfort to the enemy, all three of those things are part of what meets the constitutional definition of treason.”

Mast then focused specifically on Biden and what kind of leader Mast thinks he is.

“You look at President Biden, and I would say these two things about him,” Mast said. “He is hollow. His decisions are empty. They are void of wisdom in their entirety and across the board, we see a naïveté to the aggressors he’s dealing with.”

Mast: Biden’s Statements Are ‘Schizophrenic’

The Republican congressman continued, “Maybe there is an element of dementia there that we might hear about in years to come. But I would say at a minimum, this man appears to be schizophrenic with the statements that he’s making in front of one camera and the way that they’re directly changing in front of a camera on a different day or the day after that or what his members of his cabinet are saying.”

“There’s definitely got to be schizophrenia there,” Mast finished.
