President Joe Biden is up to his regular shady shenanigans.
“Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez reacted to the Biden administration reportedly looking to increase oil imports from Venezuela by stating that there is no need to go to the Maduro regime in Venezuela that President Biden declared a national security threat five days ago for more oil when there are other nations the U.S. can get oil from and domestic production that is already licensed,” reports Breitbart News.
“Menendez doubled down on his statement referring to Maduro as a ‘cancer’ and arguing that ‘we should not breathe new life into his reign of torture and murder,'” reported Breitbart News.
Menendez didn’t stop there, noting that there are numerous places for the United States to get oil that would not be a national security threat.
“Look, I understand the economic consequences that the president is trying to avoid for the American people,” Menendez said. “I share that concern. But there [are] places like Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, as well as domestic production that has already been licensed, that should be able to [offset] the consequences of the loss of Russian oil.”
“You don’t have to go to a dictator that, ultimately, has created enormous consequences for his people, that kills people, that imprisons them, and for which President Biden extended the decree that declared Maduro and his regime a national security threat,” Menendez said.
