Bipartisan bill banning Russian oil sets up clash with White House

A growing bipartisan group of lawmakers released legislation on Thursday that would block imports of Russian oil despite President Joe Biden’s opposition to cutting off the shipments, setting up a potential standoff over how to ratchet up punishments against Moscow for its war on Ukraine.

Lead co-sponsors Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who chairs the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said they would take the blame for a jump in gasoline prices that would likely follow a move to restrict supply from Russia, one of the world’s top energy producers...

Despite the continued White House resistance to a U.S. oil embargo, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said this morning that she backs the growing push to ban Russian oil.

Manchin and Murkowski’s bipartisan effort is gaining momentum and stands apart from other partisan bills targeting different aspects of Russian energy. Their bill has a total of 18 co-sponsors, nine from each party, ranging from liberal Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) to GOP hawk Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)...

Reps. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) have introduced a matching House version of the bill.

The leadership vacuum in DC is so great that our highly partisan Congress has had to shake off it's dysfunction and begin to find ways to blaze a trail to fashion some sort of response to the threats to international stability...

...since "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" is incapable.

When even Nancy Pelosi won't carry the old fart's water you know things are bad.

Don't you dare blame me. I voted for Trump.
