Gosar thinks it’s time to rethink the flawed Biden administration Russia policy
Late last month, the Biden Administration announced it would waive sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, effectively ensuring its completion. The Nord Stream 2 pipeline is an extensive offshore natural gas pipeline being constructed to connect Europe to reserves in Russia. It is owned by a former communist intelligence officer and close friend of Mr. Putin.
Reversing a policy implemented by President Trump, Mr. Biden handed a gift to Russian President Putin and his desire to increase geopolitical influence in Europe. That’s because Mr. Biden’s actions will send more Russian natural gas to Europe, put U.S. resources at a distinct competitive disadvantage, costing American jobs and reducing America’s geopolitical influence.
In five short months, we’ve gone from 100% energy independence under President Trump to gas shortages, two pipelines being shut down and gasoline prices averaging well over $3 a gallon. The Biden America Last agenda is undoing all of the positive gains President Trump created.
In response, this week, my Republican colleagues and I wrote to Mr. Biden urging him to rethink his actions and fully implement the sanctions to prevent the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project.
