A U.S. Representative from Oklahoma who made two trips to Afghanistan to help with the evacuation effort is speaking out this week to claim that he has proof that President Joe Biden lied about Americans and visa holder’s access to Kabul Airport.
Daily Mail reported that U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin alleged that he has secret recordings of Americans failing to get to the airport in time for the final evacuation. He also claimed that he has recordings of one woman and her four kids who were denied access to the airport after trying to get in for 12 hours.
“Five times she approached this guard with the Taliban, the last time they stuck a pistol to her head with her kids there,” Mullin said, going on to add that the woman went back home the final time and became physically ill, never trying again to reach the airport.
Biden found himself in hot water last month over his remarks claiming Americans were making it through the Taliban-protected airport perimeter without trouble.
“We have no indication that they haven’t been able to get — in Kabul — through the airport,” Biden said at the time. “We’ve made an agreement with the, with the Taliban. Thus far, they’ve allowed them to go through. It’s in their interest for them to go through. So, we know of no circumstance where American citizens are — carrying an American passport — are trying to get through to the airport.”
Mullin fired back by saying that Biden has “blood on his hands” because the Republican believes a U.S. woman and her 2-year-old son who he was trying to help are now dead after an explosion at the airport’s Abbey Gate.
“We haven’t had any contact with them since. I believe it’s because they were caught up in that,” Mullin said.
Not stopping there, Mullin blamed the U.S. State Department for not allowing him to get to get to them on time.
“I have a list of 50 that want out that [say] they haven’t got out,” he said. “I have a list of 50 that we have ran out of Kabul and put in safe houses around Afghanistan that I promise you they wanted out.”
While Mullin’s trips to Afghanistan were unauthorized, he feels that they were necessary because of Biden’s “failure.”
‘It’s his fault,” he said. “I wouldn’t have been over there – I wouldn’t have even thought about going if it wasn’t for his failure. I wouldn’t have put my life in danger. I wouldn’t have put my kids and my wife through that I wouldn’t have put anybody through it.”
