(Republican Insider) – A brand new report just hit the Internet revealing that President Joe Biden and some of his Democratic Party pals received cash from a top-rated Russia lobbyist back in 2020 just before waiving sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline.
According to the Gateway Pundit, one of Biden’s first orders of business was to close down the Keystone Pipeline which resulted in the loss of 55,000 American jobs. And this was done while our economy was and is struggling to bounce back after the coronavirus pandemic and the tyrannical measures that were used to try and prevent the spread of the illness.
However, Biden just so happens to support a pipeline that runs from Russia to Germany, something that will help Russian President Vladimir Putin expand his political power and influence in that region of the world.
Back in 2019, the Trump administration slapped some economic sanctions on companies and executives who were involved in the building of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia to Germany. The Nord Stream 2 pipeline enables Russia to bypass Ukraine and Poland, delivering fuel straight to Germany.
“The Trump Administration didn’t want to give Vladimir Putin too much of a hold over Europe by controlling energy supplies, but Joe Biden sold out to the highest bidder (as usual),” the GP report says.
“President Biden and his allies raked in campaign cash from a top Russia lobbyist in 2020, just months before his administration’s decision to scrap sanctions on a controversial firm building a Russian oil pipeline to Germany,” The New York Post said in its report.
“Richard Burt, a managing partner at McLarty Associates and a former U.S. ambassador to Germany during the Reagan administration, ponied up $4,000 for Joe Biden in October 2020 and dropped another $10,000 in the lefty-aligned political action committee Unite The County in March 2020, FEC records show,” the report continued.
“In addition to violating Biden’s own campaign pledge not to take lobbyist cash, the money from Burt is particularly noteworthy as he is currently directly engaged in lobbying activities for Nord Stream 2 AG,” it added.
“When Richard Burt donated to Biden Victory Fund, he failed to acknowledge that he was a registered foreign agent and was therefore ineligible to contribute,” a Democratic National Committee spokesman went on to tell The Post. “Because Burt also listed a different employer than on his [Foreign Agents Registration Act] registration, he was not flagged during our vetting process.”
“The Switzerland-based Nord Stream 2 — controlled by an ex-East German Stasi officer and close ally of Vladimir Putin — is currently engaging in sanctionable activity, according to the State Department. Team Biden raised eyebrows, however, after declining to enforce sanctions, citing U.S. national interests, Axios reported,” the Post report said.
The DNC is claiming that it gave the cash back to the lobbyist after the New York Post made their inquiry.
