Biden Begs Senate Dems to Stop Republican Sanctions on Putin
We have spent years delving into the various details of the Russiagate hoax, but the big picture is that the underlying claim behind the hoax, that Russia would somehow benefit from a Trump administration and that it would suffer from a Democrat administration had no connection to reality.
The Obama-Biden administration, with Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, was deeply undermined by Russian interests and had blatantly pandered to Putin and his allies, most notoriously during Obama's "Vladimir" hot mic moment in which he promised to have more freedom to appease Russia after the election.
The 2020 election was an even more blatant choice between the Trump administration, which had imposed the toughest sanctions on Russia, and Biden, who ran on a promise to give Putin a free pass on the scam arms accord that the Trump administration was holding out on.
Now the Biden administration has taken off what's left of the mask by begging Senate Dems to block a Republican push for sanctions.
The Biden administration, led by Secretary of State Antony Blinken, is pushing back on Congress passing tougher sanctions against a Russian energy project even as President Biden is coming under pressure to get tougher on Moscow...
U.S. intelligence has detected a buildup of Russian troops along the Ukrainian border in preparation for a possible military invasion, according to a report from Bloomberg.
Nevertheless, Senate aides say that Blinken is urging Democratic senators to block an amendment sponsored by Sens. James Risch (Idaho), the ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to impose sanctions on Nord Stream 2 AG, which is owned by Russian energy giant Gazprom.
Biden won't touch Gazprom. Maybe Hunter Biden can explain why.
