Did Biden deliver on his Nord Stream 2 promise?
September 28, 2022 |
In what appears to be an act of sabotage, both gas pipelines connecting Russia and Europe, Nord Stream 1 and 2, in the Baltic Sea, are reportedly severely damaged. Back in February, Joe Biden made a promise to “bring an end” to Nord Stream 2 if the Russians invaded.
If Biden did make the decision to deliberately destroy the pipelines, which would in fact be an unforgivable crime against our friends in Europe, then this is a criminal act that calls for immediate impeachment. -JD
Pres. Biden: "If Russia invades…then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it."
Reporter: "But how will you do that, exactly, since…the project is in Germany's control?"

At a Senate hearing, top US diplomat Victoria Nuland celebrated the Nord Stream 2 pipeline bombing:
