Hawley Objects to Biden Nominee Over Administration’s Continued Foreign Policy Debacles

Thursday, April 07, 2022

Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) objected to expediting the confirmation of a Biden Department of Defense nominee in a continued effort to demand more accountability amid the Biden administration’s foreign policy disasters.

As Sen. Hawley said on the floor, not a single Administration official has been fired or held accountable for their role in the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster, which resulted in the loss of 13 American service members and hundreds or more Americans left behind Taliban lines.

Sen. Hawley also called the Administration to account for its failures in Ukraine, demanding that the White House and Democratic colleagues provide Ukraine with more of the assistance President Volodymyr Zelensky has been urgently requesting, including MiG fighter jets and more intelligence support.
