This happened just about a an hour ago in the House Committee meeting on the Afghanistan withdrawal.
Yesterday a few of the Republicans made a big stink about Biden being advised by military officials to keep 2500 troops in Afghanistan and alleged Biden lied about it to ABC News George Stephanopolous.
Today that ploy blew up in the Republicans face
Democratic House Committee Chairman : Since the transcript was submitted for the record we read through this kind of quick , but Mr. Stephanopolous says
GS : Your top military advisers warned against withdrawing on this timeline, they wanted you to keep about 2500 troops -
President Biden : No they didnt , it was split.
Thats what the President said, he didnt say "no nobody advised me", he said "it was split".
and then Stephanopolous says
GS: No one says "we should keep 2500 troops, its been a stable situation for the last several years, we can do that, we can continue to do that" ?
President Biden : No one said that to me.
