US President Biden is under international scrutiny after he withdrew troops from Afghanistan. The Democrat was abiding by a pact reached between his predecessor Donald Trump and the Taliban last year. However, the absence of US troops has allowed the Taliban to take control of Afghanistan without major resistance. Some critics have called for the President to be impeached.

Former New York mayor and Donald Trump’s ex-attorney, Rudy Giuliani tweeted Sunday evening: “It’s such a bad #BidenDisaster, it may lead to an #IMPEACHBIDENNOW. Then #IMPEACHBIDENHARRIS will lead #PelosiDisaster.”

Amy Tarkanian, former Nevada GOP chairwoman, stated that Mr Biden cannot stay Commander In Chief after what unfolded this week.

She tweeted: “The Cabinet should immediately invoke the 25th Amendment. If they won’t do that, Congress should move to impeach him.

“Him remaining as our Commander In Chief is a national security threat.”

This isn’t the first time calls to impeach Mr Biden have emerged.

When claims that Ukrainian prosecutor general Viktor Shokin was fired for investigating the Burisma scandal, involving President Biden’s son Hunter, Republican Senator Joni Ernst said an impeachment process could be in order.

She said in January: “Joe Biden should be very careful what he’s asking for because, you know, we can have a situation where if it should ever be President Biden, that immediately, people, right the day after he would be elected would be saying, ‘Well, we’re going to impeach him.”

President Biden can only face impeachment if he was to violate the US Constitution article two, section four.

It states: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanours.”

The House of Representatives can vote to impeach a president with a simple majority. The Senate will then hold a trial that ends on a vote of a verdict.

It takes two-thirds of the Senate to remove a President from office – political loyalties have meant a leader has never been ousted from office after being impeached.

President Richard Nixon left office via resignation after he was impeached in 1973 following the series of high-level resignations and firings widely called the “Saturday Night Massacre” during the course of the Watergate scandal.

President Trump was impeached twice – but acquitted both times thanks to his Republican allies.

An analyst and Democrat adviser warned on the Politics Weekly podcast recently that Mr Biden and his colleagues should be concerned about future elections.

David Shor explained why the Democrats face “scary” 2022 Midterms.

He said: “In 2016, there was a real education lines realignment where affluent, college-educated white people had trended towards the left, while working-class white and non-white people trended towards the right.

“In the context of the US, this is a really big problem because the US electoral institutions are just not designed for coalitions based on urban professionals to win.”

Mr Shor said that the electoral college system in the US has a “three-point bias” in favour of the Republicans.

He added that Mr Biden won in 2020 with 52.3 percent of the popular vote – but had he got just 52 percent, he would have lost despite having millions more votes.

Mr Shor has said he is “scared” for the Democrats in the 2022 Midterms, as certain demographics like black voters and Hispanic voters are shifting towards the Republicans.
