Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) on Wednesday rejected calls from GOP lawmakers to impeach President Biden over his abysmal handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Asked during an event in Kentucky if Biden’s mishandling of the exit from Afghanistan is cause for impeachment and if he would support it, McConnell said that “the president is not going to be removed from office.” 

“There’s a Democratic House, a narrowly Democratic Senate. That’s not going to happen,” he said.

“There isn’t going to be an impeachment,” he added. 

However, McConnell instead said he believes the 2022 midterms will be a chance for voters to hold the administration accountable.

“The report card you get is every two years,” McConnell said. “I think the way these behaviors get adjusted in this country is at the ballot box.”

“I do think we’re likely to see a typical kind of midterm reaction to a new administration. … Typically there is some buyer’s remorse,” he said.
