Senator Marco Rubio (U-DC) was installed as vice-chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) to assist covering up the SSCI involvement in the intelligence community targeting of Donald Trump. Rubio replaced Richard Burr, who was working closely with Mark Warner.
During his appearance with the State Department’s unofficial spokesperson, CNN’s Jake Tapper, Senator Rubio outlined the case against Vladimir Putin noting that Ukraine is a legacy move by the Russian president. In the background of Rubio stating the U.S. needs to stop buying oil from Russia, the Biden administration has entered discussions with Venezuela for replacement oil so they can create the better optic and stop purchasing from Vladimir Putin.
Think about the ridiculousness of the situation as it now presents. Only a few short years ago (January 2019), Marco Rubio was one of the main characters who led a ‘whole of government‘ effort to remove Venezuela leader Nicolas Maduro on behalf of his Latino constituents in Florida. Now that the focus has shifted to Russia, Rubio wants to remove Vladimir Putin, by purchasing oil from Nicolas Maduro. Yup, there’s U.S. foreign policy in a nutshell.
Another worthwhile note, in an earlier segment Jake Tapper called for U.S. sanctions against the Russian DUMA, essentially Russian congress. Tapper wants the U.S. government to start targeting Russian politicians, freezing assets and confiscating their wealth. He just says this as if it’s just an ordinary evolution of “the process.”
It would be interesting to see Jake Tapper’s position if China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, India, Brazil or South Africa started to confiscate the wealth, property and interests of U.S. politicians and/or citizen billionaires of the United States because the U.S. invaded Iraq under false pretenses.
