Joe Biden has been receiving a lot of backlash for waiving sanctions related to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

This will afford Russia significant control over EU energy thus increasing Russia’s political influence. At the same time, Biden has been harming our own energy industry by doing things like killing the Keystone XL Pipeline.

From Fox Business:

The country’s exports of oil to the U.S. are at an all-time high, reaching almost 750,000 b/d in March, according to International Energy Agency (IEA) data, making Russia the number-three oil exporter to the US. Here at home, U.S. oil production has fallen by 1.715 million barrels from a year ago, so a large part of that void is being filled by Russia.

Joe Biden is the best friend Russia has had in this regard.

Bash asked why they were “giving into Russia on this pipeline?” She quoted House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Michael McCaul (R-TX), “They are testing Biden. And, in my judgment, he failed the test.”

We waived sanctions only on two. And they were not Russian. It was a German individual and a Swiss company. And the notion there, Dana, is that, when President Biden took office, Nord Stream II was 90 percent complete. That happened under the Trump administration. So, the question to us was, will we go after directly, using our sanctions power, our European allies and friends?”

Now that’s incredibly deceitful on Sullivan’s part. Nord Stream 2 AG which is the company completing the pipeline is based in Switzerland but it’s owned by
