Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson vows a GOP investigation of President Biden’s failed Afghanistan withdrawal from nearly a year ago; Jackson says “Something like this cannot happen and nobody be held accountable for it.”
Jackson spoke exclusively to Fox & Friends, saying the Biden Administration doesn’t want the truth out.
“It led to a colossal failure. We’ve destroyed our reputation abroad. We lost 13 service members in the process. And I think that we have a lot of whistleblowers that have come out that have contributed to this report. I think it’s very accurate. I think it’s very telling. I think it’s only the beginning of what we’re going to find out once we get the house back in January, and we really start oversight into this.”
“We will get to the bottom of this, and we will find out what happened to the billions of dollars of weapons that we left behind, all these special immigrant visa applications that were out there. We left these people behind, a lot of them that fled into Iran to keep from being killed by the Taliban,” he told Brian Kilmeade, Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt.
Jackson also shared a similar message via his Twitter account.
“It’s been one year since the tragic fall of Kabul, and this White House still REFUSES to accept blame for their failures. This was all avoidable. The White House is trying to cover-up the TRUTH on what happened. When Republicans take back the House, there will be INVESTIGATIONS!!”
