GOP Senator demands Biden ‘resign for lying over Afghanistan withdrawal that left 13 Americans dead.

A US senator is calling on Joe Biden to resign for "lying" about the Afghanistan withdrawal and the bombing of the Kabul Airport that killed 13 servicemembers.

Senator Marsha Blackburn, of Tennessee, lambasted the Biden administration's handling of the pullout during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Tuesday.

Addressing Secretary Lloyd Austin III, General Mark Milley, and General Kenneth McKenzie Jr, she said: "As you’ve heard from all of us, the American people, Tennesseans are wanting some answers. They deserve to hear your testimony.

"I think it is unacceptable that this is the first time that I’m hearing from you in any forum, despite attempts at outreach, by both my staff and me, save a few short all-senator phone calls that we have had."

She continued: "Tennessee National Guard units have deployed to Afghanistan at a high operational tempo, as well as providing vital logistical services, such as refueling."

"So how did we get here? How did we get to what has been a complete letdown to most Tennesseans?"

After the hearing, Blackburn went on to once again ask for Biden's resignation in a tweet.

The senator then addressed the US sergeant from Tennessee who was killed in the bombing at Hamid Karzai Airport.

"Tennesseans are heartbroken over the loss of one of our own, Staff Sergeant Ryan Knauss, a patriotic American who represented the best of all of us.

"In the August 26th suicide bombing at Hamid Karzai International Airport, he made the ultimate sacrifice.

"So how did we get here? How did we get to what has been a complete letdown to most Tennesseans?"

After the hearing, Blackburn went on to once again ask for Biden's resignation in a tweet.
