In a recent review of the 2024 State Department budget, Senator Ted Cruz tore into Secretary Blinken on the Biden administration’s actions regarding the Ukraine war.
Cruz revealed that he is “deeply concerned” with the administration's real interest in the war in Ukraine, which is that it seeks to “re-enter a nuclear agreement with Iran.”
“In January, Mr. Secretary,” he continued, “you publicly assessed that Iran had become ‘Russia’s top military backer’ — that’s a quote. And indeed, Russia uses Iranian banks and tankers and planes to move weapons and to dodge sanctions.”
Cruz said, “The Biden administration is boosting and, in many cases, funding both sides of this war.”
He continued tearing into Blinken, saying, “In your recent transmissions, you wrote to Congress that previous waivers you had issued ‘would expand Iran’s nuclear programs and further deepen cooperation between Iran and Russia at a time that Iran is providing lethal aid to Russia.”
Mark Levin comments, “Ted Cruz is laying out better than anybody has the appeasement of this administration of the regime in Iran and how their appeasement is leading to the funding of the Russian war machine against Ukraine — while we’re providing the Ukrainians with weapons and resources to defend themselves.”
But Cruz wasn’t finished.
He went on, “Russia’s on the side of Iran, and Iran is on the side of Russia. They’re both against us. And it's staggering that the Biden administration would say Russia is still on our side trying to constrain Iran.”
“You could halt this cooperation; you could halt the civilian nuclear cooperation with Russia; you could halt the oil sales, but this administration is not willing to do so because of politics. And as a result, the billions of dollars the Ayatollah is getting because of your decisions and President Biden’s decisions are funding the war in Ukraine.”
Levin sees it too.
He says, “This administration is arming the Iranians. That’s what they’re doing with nukes. How? Because they’re bankrolling it. How? Because they won’t block those oil shipments. That’s how.”
