“Makes Me Want to Puke!”: GOP Congressman Accuses Biden Admin of Lying About Helping Four Americans Escape Afghanistan Who Were Rescued by Veteran Cory Mills

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) accused the Biden administration of lying about helping four Americans escape from Afghanistan on Monday, saying, the false claim “makes me want to PUKE! The State Dept didn’t do a damn thing for these people for 12 days except almost get them killed repeatedly. I know, because my office and the team on the ground led by Cory Mills & @RepMullin facilitated their escape every step of the way.”

Mills is a veteran and former Department of Defense advisor in the Trump administration currently running for Congress who has been in Afghanistan trying to help get Americans out of the country. Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) has been in the news for his on the ground efforts to help Americans stranded in Afghanistan.

The State Department put out a statement on Monday saying, “we have facilitated the departure of four American citizens from Afghanistan via an overland route. Our Embassy greeted the Americans as they crossed the border into the third country.”

The claim by the State Department was reported minutes after Jackson had posted about the four Americans leaving Afghanistan. Jackson’s statement did not credit the Biden administration.

“After 2 weeks & multiple life threatening attempts, I am overjoyed to share that 4 U.S. citizens from #TX13 were part of the first successful ground evacuation since the U.S. left Kabul. Thank you to Cory Mills & the other patriots on his team for saving these BRAVE Americans!”

Jackson spoke to Newsmax about the false claim, saying that during the Kabul evacuation the State Department would only tell the U.S. citizen and her family to show the Taliban their passports and say they are Americans. The Taliban would then beat them and threaten to kill them if they came back to the airport. Jackson said Mills and his team had “snuck across the border” into Afghanistan to rescue the Americans and brought them out safely.
