The Biden administration’s Ambassador to Germany, Amy Gutmann, has been in America for the past two weeks rather than in Germany.
Gutmann somehow made it back to the U.S. after Vice President Kamala Harris refused to let her fly back from Munich on Air Force Two following the Munich Security Conference, which Harris attended.
A spokesman for the German embassy defended Gutmann and said she had been working on legitimate business in the U.S.
“While in the United States, Ambassador Gutmann has conducted a full range of in-depth policy briefings throughout the State Department, National Security Council, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, the intelligence community, and other agencies, as well as with German government officials in Washington,” Giordono-Scholz said in an email. “This will ensure the Ambassador is fully aligned with our policy priorities across the U.S. government, and gives her the best possible preparation as she leads Mission Germany.”
Or maybe she’s just scared to be in Europe while the Russians are invading Ukraine.
