Amy Gutmann, President Joe Biden’s U.S. Ambassador to Germany was denied access to Air Force Two and forced to fly home to the United States on a commercial flight. Gutmann suddenly came home after only a few days in Germany.
“Democrat President Joe Biden’s U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Amy Gutmann, has returned to the United States just days after first reporting for duty during the Munich Security Conference, taking a commercial flight back to the States after Vice President Kamala Harris refused to let her fly home on Air Force Two,” reported Breitbart News.
“Gutmann, who presented her credentials just days ago — Thursday of last week — to begin work as the U.S. Ambassador to Germany, attended meetings at the Munich Security Conference with world leaders and fellow top U.S. officials, including Harris and Secretary of State Antony Blinken,” reports Breitbart News.
“Instead of staying in Germany to work at this critical time in foreign policy in Europe, an embassy spokesman confirmed that Gutmann is now back stateside just days after first reporting for duty. Germany is one of the key geographic centerpieces of the unfolding Russia-Ukraine conflict, given Biden’s decision to allow Nordstream 2, the Russian natural gas pipeline into Germany, to proceed after his predecessor former President Donald Trump held up the pipeline during his administration. The Kremlin has been increasingly emboldened since Biden opened up the pipeline and now threats of a potential invasion in Ukraine perhaps represent the possibility of the biggest war in Europe since World War II,” according to Breitbart News.
“The White House lobbied the Senate to confirm Gutmann this month because they said she was urgently needed in Germany due to an impending war from Russia,” a former State Department official said.
“Gutmann’s nomination had been held up in the Senate for some time after she was nominated, but the Democrat-controlled chamber finally confirmed her earlier this month. That begs the question why there was such a rush to confirm her when she has already left Germany after being there for just a few days after she formally reported for duty,” reports Breitbart News.
Joseph Giordono-Scholz, the spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, issued an email making an effort to explain what is going on with Gutmann.
“Ambassador Gutmann has temporarily returned to the United States to undertake cross-government consultations on the situation and to complete necessary State Department in-processing, and will return to Berlin as soon as possible. Ambassador Gutmann is fully engaged in the critical diplomacy being undertaken at this crucial moment. Any suggestion otherwise is completely false,” Giordono-Scholz said in the email.
Harris’s team has declined to comment about why Gutmann was denied a seat on Air Force Two.
