Buttigieg Faces Major Consequences for Dereliction of Duty – Congress is Calling for the Transportation Secretary’s Resignation

What’s Happening:

Millions of Americans are asking one question, in the aftermath of the shocking train derailment in Ohio, “Where’s Pete Buttigieg?” Buttigieg is Biden’s chief of the Department of Transportation. So, yeah, a massive train derailment that has released harmful chemicals into the environment should have been this man’s top priority.

Instead, he was MIA for ten days. And after three weeks, he hasn’t appeared to do much about this catastrophe. Residents of East Palestine, OH cannot return to their homes. Videos have surfaced showing the water contaminated by chemicals. Yet, good old Pete seems to do nothing. He was even questioned by a reporter on the street, but refused to answer.

From Fox News:

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg raised eyebrows on Tuesday when he refused to answer a reporter’s questions about the crisis in East Palestine…

Buttigieg told Taer that he would not have a conversation with her “just walking down the street,” but the reporter did not stop attempting…

“Right now, I’m taking some personal time, and I’m walking down the street,” Buttigieg said.

He did stop and take a picture of the report, for some reason. The pressure might be getting to Pete, finally. Because he said he will visit the site of the disaster. But didn’t say when.

From The Post Millennial:

It’s been over 18 days since the train derailment that sent toxic chemicals into the environment of East Palestine and Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has finally announced that he will be making a trip to the area…

However, he gave no concrete date as to when he would be making the trip.

It seems like Buttigieg is annoyed that he has to do anything. He must have thought the job as head of the DOT was just a cakewalk. Transportation takes care of itself, right? We’ve seen how his negligence has led to numerous crises since 2021. Those include the supply chain breakdown, a possible rail workers’ strike, and not one, but three shutdowns at national airports.

Not to mention this ecological disaster in Ohio. His claims that he’d go see it are not good enough. And Congress is beginning to get impatient.

From Just the News:

More GOP lawmakers are calling for Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to resign, with a House Republican from Ohio suggesting the GOP-led chamber should proceed with impeachment if he doesn’t step down.

Sen. Marco Rubio blasted Buttigieg over his shocking record of negligence. When the rail strike was looming last year, Pete was on vacation in Portugal (pretending to be in office). Rubio also pointed out Buttigieg’s failures over air travel and the train derailment.

It looks like Congress is gearing up to take action on this do-nothing Biden goon. Had this been any other administration, Buttigieg would have been fired over a year ago. But old Joe is too senile or too corrupt to care. He’s jetting off to Europe, ignoring these crises at home.

Perhaps Buttigieg, and this entire administration, needs to be impeached?

Key Takeaways:

  • Pete Buttigieg has not visited the site of the train derailment, despite three weeks passing.
  • The head of the DOT refused to answer questions from a reporter on the street.
  • Republican lawmakers are calling for answers, urging Buttigieg to resign.
