Rep. Hice to Newsmax: Blinken’s Testimony Proves He Needs to Resign

It’s obvious, after his two days of congressional testimony, that Secretary of State Antony Blinken needs to resign because he “has no idea what he’s doing,” Rep. Jody Hice said on Newsmax Wednesday.

Blinken acknowledged during his testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the number of green card holders remaining behind the lines in Afghanistan is “in the thousands.” Hice said Wednesday that if it wasn’t for private groups trying to get Americans out, there would have been “thousands and thousands more” left behind.
