“Sixty-eight Republican members of the House of Representatives are sending a letter to the Biden administration ahead of the president’s visit with Russian President Vladimir Putin this month, slamming President Biden for waiving sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline. … ‘given your open hostility to domestic pipelines like the Keystone XL pipeline, which also was a top priority for our Canadian allies, it is baffling that you are willing to green-light Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline,’ the letter reads. ‘The Keystone XL pipeline would enhance our energy security and create job opportunities for Americans,’ they continued. ‘Lifting these sanctions, however, prioritizes Russian energy over American energy and Russian jobs over American jobs.'” [editor’s note: In what universe does a Russia-to-Germany pipeline require a “green light” from the US govenrment? – TLK] (06/07/21)
