For years, Democrats and the media breathlessly -- and falsely -- claimed President Trump and Republicans were weak on Russia – they even claimed the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
Today, we know the truth: this entire Democrat narrative was a shameful, brazen lie.
The Steele dossier, the basis of the FBI’s spying on the Trump campaign and the wider Russian collusion narrative, was nothing more than a disinformation scheme funded by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Special Counsel John Durham indicted a central source for the dossier on five counts of lying to the FBI. Durham’s investigation is ongoing.
Unlike Biden, the Trump Administration stood up to Russia. President Trump:
Successfully pushed NATO member nations to increase defense spending, to the tune of at least $50 billion;
Imposed sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which Biden later waived, empowering Russia to exert increased influence over the EU;
Sold lethal military weapons to Ukraine;
Achieved domestic U.S. energy independence;
Imposed sanctions on Russian entities and individuals previously indicted for their roles in Russian interference in our election.
Democrats, not Republicans, are weak on Russia. Biden pledged to stand up to Putin. Instead, he’s spent months appeasing him and emboldening Russian aggression.
On Biden’s watch, Russia is potentially planning a military invasion of Ukraine.
