Biden Caves to Putin

Biden is making a move to waive sanctions on a Russian-backed pipeline into Germany.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Axios reported Tuesday that the administration is waiving sanctions against Nord Stream 2 AG and its CEO, Matthias Warnig. Nord Stream 2 is a German company controlled by Gazprom, the Russian state-controlled oil giant. Warnig is a former East German intelligence officer said to be close to Russian president Vladimir Putin.

In March, Secretary of State Antony Blinken called the pipeline “a Russian geopolitical project intended to divide Europe and weaken European energy security.” He said the pipeline was a “bad deal” for Europe and that the Biden administration was “committed to complying” with bipartisan legislation to impose sanctions.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), who introduced legislation imposing the sanctions, called the decision “stunning.”

“In defiance of U.S. law, Biden is actively helping Putin build his pipeline,” Cruz tweeted.

This goes against Joe Biden’s campaign promise to be tough on Russia.

There is assuredly more to this than meets the eye. Somebody has got the goods on somebody else, methinks. Petroleum blackmail?
