U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) joined The Hugh Hewitt Show Wednesday morning. See below for highlights:

On President Biden’s Refusal to Heed Warnings from Military Leadership: 

“Well [President Biden] was getting sound military advice. I am absolutely confident because I was talking to the military leadership as well. First of all, the decision to withdraw was something they thought was a mistake and I believe they had said that to the previous president and the one before that. Second, they surely were blindsided by the rather rapid decision and the announcement of it, and this is a botched job all the way around. Rather than President Biden pointing the finger at everybody else, he should point the finger at himself. It was his decision, he owns it, and it’s an embarrassment of gargantuan proportions for our country…It’s just a disaster.”

On Holding the Biden Administration Accountable:

“There’s certainly going to be plenty of inquiries, as I just said three defense and foreign policy related committees in the Senate under Democratic Chairmen have already announced that they’re beginning a hearing process. We need to find out how this happened, and monitor and keep the pressure on. This job is not over, this withdrawal is not complete until all the Americans are safely out.”
