Senator Tom Cotton Urges House to Impeach Biden Over Israel Arms Threat

Republican Senator Tom Cotton has called for the House to impeach President Biden after he threatened to withhold arms shipments to Israel. Mr. Cotton argued that this situation is similar to when former President Donald Trump faced impeachment for threatening to withhold aid to Ukraine in 2019. During that time, Democrats moved quickly to impeach President Trump, arguing that he was using his power for personal and political gain. Critics of President Biden’s threats to block weapons from going to Israel say that he is doing so to help his chances for re-election.

President Biden’s statement that he will not supply weapons to Israel if they continue their push into Rafah has caused concern among lawmakers, especially after a $26 billion aid package to Israel was recently passed. Republican Representative Mike Lawler of New York accused President Biden of prioritizing his electoral prospects in Michigan and Minnesota over national security. He stated that withholding ammunition and military equipment from Israel as they defend themselves and make decisions in their best interest is wrong.

Following the backlash, the Biden administration has attempted to clarify the president’s comments, assuring that all the aid designated in the legislation will be sent to Israel. Senator Cotton maintains that based on the precedent set with President Trump and Ukraine, the House has no choice but to impeach President Biden for withholding foreign aid to help with reelection.
