Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) along with 25 GOP colleagues introduced three resolutions calling for the resignation of the President of the United States, Secretary of Defense, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff over their failed Afghanistan withdrawal and abandonment of American citizens. 
 
Congressman Higgins issued the following statement:
 
“America faces a great division coming into this era of unspeakable grief as we look upon the failure of our executive branch to execute a well-planned withdrawal of American forces, citizens, allies, and weaponry in Afghanistan. This administration has abandoned its oath to the American people, and it is the right thing to do for President Biden, Secretary Austin, and Chairman Milley to step down. If a sitting President resigns, the constitutional process of succession will immediately move forward as our Founding Fathers intended. I call upon the President to embrace this moment and resign.”
