Senator Johnny Ernst talks to ‘GannitesAbout how President Biden still bows to climate unrest without opening up U.S. energy production, and why energy independence is key to further sanctions against Russia.
SEN. JOHN ERNST: We have cut American energy production and become much more dependent on Russian energy, Russian oil. … All I know is that we lost 71,000 jobs in energy here in the United States. We have returned to American energy production and become much more dependent on Russian oil, and we have returned to the Iranian JCPOA, a nuclear agreement where we allow the Russians to exchange this deal, which will allow Iran to return to energy. market. It’s all funny. Sean, I don’t understand this president’s foreign policy.
[Oil sanctions on Russia] it’s not what we’re doing now, but it’s something we’ve been pursuing in a bipartisan way for quite some time. There are those who will disagree, but that’s the only thing that really oppressed President Putin, and that’s his energy income. … Energy security is national security, we must increase it here and put pressure on President Putin and Russia, but this administration refuses to do so.
