State Department Faces SUBPOENA – Investigation Bombshell!
(LibertySociety.com) – A year after President Joe Biden withdrew the last of the troops from Afghanistan, the House Foreign Affairs Committee announced its intentions to subpoena the State Department for answers. Republicans within the group recently released a report on the seemingly abrupt departure, claiming the administration failed to plan the exit properly.
As they anticipate taking the House back in November, Republicans are getting ready to dive into the details that led to the death of 13 US troops and over 150 Afghans.

According to the report, the military was supposed to start planning the complex withdrawal in April 2021. Instead, they fleshed out possible scenarios merely weeks before the last of the troops left in August.
Adrienne Watson, a spokesperson for the National Security Council, told Axios there were severe problems with the committee’s report, including “false claims.”
Still, Republicans believe the Biden administration simply wants to forget about what happened in Afghanistan during the withdrawal, and that’s not acceptable. In addition to the subpoenas for the State Department, the group wants the declassification of pertinent records, testimony from several key individuals, and public hearings investigating top officials like Secretary of State Antony Blinken and others.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the GOP will release the official report soon, but the draft outlining the requests spans over 100 pages.
Are you curious about what they will find?
