WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources (ENR), issued the following statement regarding the Biden administration’s decision to ease sanctions on Venezuela.
“Our experience buying Russian energy should have taught President Biden that buying energy from tyrants is a dangerous proposition,” said Barrasso. “Yet President Biden continues to reward our enemies by waiving sanctions while his administration does its best to kill American energy production. Funding despots isn’t in the national interest. Supporting American energy is.”
