Kamala Harris Refuses To Answer If U.S. Will Sanction Russia’s Energy Sector

During an interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, Vice President Kamala Harris refused to answer if the Biden administration would issue sanctions on Russia’s energy sector.

Guthrie pointed out that the best way to hit Russia “where it hurts” was to target its oil and gas sector, adding, “Some senators agree, Republican and Democrat — Senator Joe Manchin mentioned for example that the U.S. is still currently buying approximately 600,000 barrels of crude and other petroleum products every single day. Is that on the table? Is that something that the administration would continue — would consider in terms of further sanctions, cutting off the oil and gas part of the economy for Russia?”

“Well, as you know, on this issue, for example, we applaud Germany in terms of what it has done as it relates to Nord Stream 2,” Harris replied. It should be noted that President Biden waived sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 oil pipeline shortly after he killed the U.S. Keystone XL pipeline.

“As it relates to what we need to do domestically as well as what we need to do in terms of this issue generally, we have as the president said reevaluated what we’re doing in terms of the strategic oil reserve here in the United States to make sure that it will not have an impact or we can mitigate the impact on the American consumer,” Harris continued. “But let’s take this one step at a time, understanding that right now on the issue of energy, our allies have stood firm and unified in a way that many of the pundits didn’t predict would happen, to ensure that we are unified in our approach to this issue.”

Harris’ comments come as U.S. oil prices have risen to the highest price in more than a decade.

“West Texas Intermediate crude futures, the U.S. oil benchmark, jumped more than 8% to trade at $112.51 per barrel, the highest level since May 2011. Global benchmark Brent crude rose more than 8% to $113.94 per barrel, the highest level since June 2014,” CNBC reported.

    They’re punishing Americans, but refuse to punish Russia. They want to buy oil from Venezuela, but refuse to increase domestic production. How do you spell TREASON?

    Harris did not answer the question, never does. Biden doesn’t want to truly solve the problem because of the “greens” and he is making deals with Iran and Venezuela. We need to open up our energy and supply the world and put the evil people out of business.

    I guess the Administration doesn’t get it …
    If you don’t drill more of your own oil, and you use up what you have in reserves, the price will go up and the highest bidder will get it – and the price will only go up from there!

    It’s not rocket science!

    This president has been a day late and a dollar short on every sanction & possible way to punish putin for his war crimes against Ukraine. His complete lack of leadership is an embarrassment to our country. SMH
