Biden blames Russia for Nord Stream Pipeline Bombing despite briefing pointing to Ukraine

President Joe Biden is really good at blame-shifting, and he's doing it again.

Biden is blaming Russia for the attack of the Nord Stream natural gas pipeline that occurred last September. The blame game comes from Biden despite his administration receiving intelligence three months before the incident that Ukrainian forces were planning to conduct such an attack.

The Biden administration was briefed that "the Ukrainian military had planned a covert attack on the undersea network using a small team of divers who reported directly to the commander in chief of the Ukrainian armed forces."

According to documents allegedly leaked onto Discord, the Biden administration was briefed that there was an upcoming attack.

"Details about the plan, which have not been previously reported, were collected by a European intelligence service and shared with the CIA in June 2022. They provide some of the most specific evidence to date linking the government of Ukraine to the eventual attack in the Baltic Sea, which U.S. and Western officials have called a brazen and dangerous act of sabotage on Europe’s energy infrastructure," the Washington Post reported.

Even though he had been briefed on this in June 2022, Biden said on September 30, 2022:

Let me say this: It was a deliberate act of sabotage and now the Russians are pumping out disinformation and lies. We’ll work with our allies to get to the bottom of exactly what, precisely what happened. At my direction I’ve already begun to help our allies enhance the protection of this critical infrastructure.

Then Biden continued with his blame game, calling out Putin for being a liar and saying "we don't know that yet, exactly," regarding what happened to the pipeline. He added:

And at the appropriate moment when things calm down, we’re gonna send the divers down to find out exactly what happened. We don’t know that yet, exactly, but just don’t listen to what Putin’s saying, because what he’s saying we know is not true.

"Biden’s comments suggests that he either did not receive word of the briefing — alarming given he is president and his policy of supporting Ukraine for 'as long as it takes' — or that he knew of the intelligence and may have deliberately misled Americans," reported Breitbart.

The Biden administration now privately concedes there is no evidence linking Russia to the pipeline bombing and has deflected questions about who might be responsible, the Post reported.
