Sen. Marsha Blackburn expressed disappointment in Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s performance, citing issues such as the Afghanistan withdrawal and a lack of transparency regarding his prostate cancer diagnosis and hospitalization.

She anticipates repercussions and potential resignation or removal from his position.

The Pentagon faced backlash for not disclosing Austin’s health situation, as it was kept from the public, the White House, and Congress. (Trending: Clintons Scramble To Delete Embarrassing Photo, But Were Too Slow)

Sen. Marsha Blackburn said, “We have been so disappointed with the performance of Secretary Austin, and there were so many people that had served with him on boards and at different times who just really touted his resume and his experience, but he has been a disappointment.”

“Whether it was the withdrawal from Afghanistan; the way our troops were handled, with not having that focus on readiness, but putting it on some of these woke trainings that they were trying to do; not supporting our military; and of course now, what you see is this lack of transparency around the prostate surgery that he had, the admissions to the hospital, not knowing who was in charge, a breakdown in the chain of command,” continued the GOP senator.

“And I think the secretary, having served in the military, knows that that was a breakdown, and I have no doubt that there are going to be repercussions from this. I also would not be surprised if you saw him resign or be removed from his position,” concluded Blackburn.

Walter Reed Hospital wrote in a statement, “His infection has cleared.”

“He continues to make progress and we anticipate a full recovery although this can be a slow process,” the facility explained.

The hospital expressed optimism about Austin’s recovery, noting that his infection has cleared, but recovery may be a slow process.
