Calls for Secretary of State Antony Blinken to resign come after supporting documents show he “helped trigger an intelligence community letter during the 2020 election that falsely portrayed Hunter Biden’s laptop contents as Russian disinformation” reports Just The News.
Republican Representatives Andy Biggs of Arizona and Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin say their probe into the Biden family scandal has unearthed reason for Blinken to step down or face impeachment. Just days ago testimony of former CIA chief Michael Morell was released, during which he stated that Blinken was behind the October 2020 letter which benefited the Biden presidential campaign.
Morell testified he did as Blinken asked admittedly because he wanted to influence the presidential election in Joe Biden’s favor. In an interview Friday on the John Solomon Reports podcast, Representative Biggs stated, “This, in my opinion, probably disqualifies him to serve as the Secretary of State.”
“And I know people keep saying, ‘Andy, you want to impeach everybody?’ Well, you know, Tony Blinken probably should be impeached, just like [Homeland Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas should be impeached” he added. “Officials who gave false testimony to Congress on Hunter laptop should be ‘criminally prosecuted.”
Senator Johnson has also called for resignation: “And if he doesn’t resign, he should be impeached,” he said during an interview Friday with the Star News Network. “Again, so many members of the Biden administration have this level of deceit, dishonesty and corruption. This is a lawless administration.” Johnson led a 2020 Senate probe that concluded Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings while his father was vice president harmed U.S. national security.
Biggs also noted the impact that the ordeal is having on the world view of the United States. “Let’s talk about our allies who now don’t trust us at all,” he said. “And why would they? They think we’re weak, untrustworthy. How in the world can he remain our spokesperson to the world? … I just don’t see how he can, and he should go. I think he’s irreparably harmed the United States.”
Asked on the podcast whether he was formally asking Blinken to resign, Biggs answered: “Yeah, in fact, I’ll break it on your show. Tony Blinken, you should resign.”
