Report: Biden took donation from Russia lobbyist months before waiving Nord Stream 2 sanctions

A bombshell new report from the New York Post reveals that President Joe Biden pulled in campaign money from a Russia lobbyist just months before his administration moved to cancel sanctions on the Russian company currently constructing the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

Citing records from the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the Post reported that Biden’s 2020 campaign raked in at $4,000 in donations directly from Richard Burt ahead of November’s presidential election.

The development marks another promise broken for Biden, who had previously said he wouldn’t accept money from lobbyists.

Excuses, excuses

Earlier in the campaign season, Burt reportedly gave $10,000 to a Democrat-aligned political action committee called Unite the Country.

The lobbyist previously served as U.S. ambassador to Germany under then-President Ronald Reagan, the Post reported.

Pressed for comment by the Post, a spokesperson for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) confirmed the FEC records were accurate.

“When Richard Burt donated to Biden Victory Fund, he failed to acknowledge that he was a registered foreign agent and was therefore ineligible to contribute,” the spokesperson told the Post. “Because Burt also listed a different employer than on his [Foreign Agents Registration Act] registration, he was not flagged during our vetting process.”

The spokesperson also said the money was returned to Burt after they learned of the matter from the Post‘s reporters.

Oh, the hypocrisy

For conservatives who watched former President Donald Trump face incessant allegations that he was too friendly with Russia, the Post‘s report that Biden took money from a lobbyist for the Kremlin just months before relaxing sanctions on a Russia-backed pipeline raises serious questions. And for good reason.

According to the Washington Examiner, Biden tried to explain his decision to cancel the sanctions — which even his energy secretary has denounced — as inevitable, since the pipeline is nearly complete.

“To go ahead and impose sanctions now, I think, would be counterproductive now in terms of our European relations,” the president told reporters earlier this month, according to the Examiner. “And they know how strongly I feel. And I hope we can work on how they handle it from this point on.”

Biden has nonetheless claimed that he is opposed to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. But his actions speak louder than his words — and at this point, it’s hard to believe many Americans are buying what he’s trying to sell.

  14. TIME TO WAKE UP AND DEMAND CONGRESS IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!
