Did the Biden administration threaten to withhold weapons sales if Saudi Arabia cut oil production before elections?

$5 this gets floated to impeach Biden, just for the irony.

Definitely an impeachable offense by thr standards of the sham 2019 impeachment. Hope the senile idiot is ready to spend the next year defending this.

Murder, You may get your wish.

Im sure we will get all sorts of nee house investigations.

Talk of impeaching joe has been brought up.

He did bring a get out of impeachment card with him though as finding the one person worse than Hillary as his VP.

That would actually work well for the DNC. Harris becomes president, so can run with the incumbant advantage in a few years.

So careful. The GOP might get the votes to convict :D

Jergul, I would love Harris running, that may be the only candidate Trump could easily beat.

So when will the impeachment hearings start? Or will the GOP let it go?

It doesn't matter. They don't have a leg to stand on. They've been screaming for lower oil/gas prices.

Of course not having a leg to stand on has never stopped them before.

Agreed, a leg to stand on isn't required to impeach.

So we are all agreed that this is atleast equivelant to what Trump did?

Another Biden scandal swept under the rug because he is a Democrat.

Which Trump phone call? There are so many.

1. Trump was trying to benefit himself.

2. He was using taxpayer funds to do so.

3. He was trying to extort a foreign government to make false accusations to take out a political opponent.


Also I don't believe anything the fucking terrorist sewer rat Saudis say.

it would be in the ballpark if true (although i see nothing about threatening to withhold weapon sales in exchange), and i doubt Biden has a Giuliani on the ground in Saudi Arabia pressuring anyone

...man, that situation was so ridiculously fucked up

but R's ruled it was not an impeachable offense (w/ enough finding him guilty to impeach), so that's that

1. Biden was trying to benefit himself ahead of midterms.

2.He was using tax payer funds to do so.

3.He wad trying to extort a foreign government to pump more oil to boost his chances against his political opponents durong midterms.

4. Its a dumb tactic. The Saudis know they will do better dealing with Republicans than democrats.

Plus lets be honest, the Saudis are fully in bed with Trump/Trumpism.Theybpay for weapons and we don't bitch about them killing journalists or bombing Yemen etc.

They side with us when we need it and in exchange we have their back against Iran and such leaving SA ad the dominant regional force.

"(although i see nothing about threatening to withhold weapon sales in exchange), "

I'll look but that's the crux of it, Biden already withheld weapons before from the Saudis.

Regardless of the sales his words were they will face "consequences"

Now the media has made this out to be the Saudis siding with Russia.

That's absurd. The Saudis IMHO are doing two things.

1. They really don't like oil dropping below $100/barrel, for obvious reasons.

2. MBS hates Biden and admittedly is in bed with MAGA. IE Kushner.

the threat of halting sales has to be related to just a one-month delay, not the act in general otherwise just diplomacy
(to be similar to Trump's extortion)

we agree, Saudis, like Russia, massively prefer Trump who proved his loyalty to them & is easily manipulated... the guy chooses our allies based on who pampers, praises & pays him the most

The timing is highly suspect.


Honestly why wouldnt the Saudis prefer Trump?

Biden came in, publicly talked shit on MBS, refused to talk to him for over a year, drug his feet on weapons sales all so he could virtue signal "Oh I'm taking on the tough guys and calling them killers"

Look what it accomplished.

”There’s going to be some consequences for what they’ve done, with Russia,” Biden said. “I’m not going to get into what I’d consider and what I have in mind. But there will be — there will be consequences.””


Why would the Saudis want to help Biden when all he is doing is threatening countries, blowing up pipelines, and sanctioning countries?

What is Biden going to do with the Saudis? Instigate anti-regime protests in Saud’s Kingdom? Blow up Saudi pipes? Arm Iran?

Saudi prince sends threat to the West after Biden warns of consequences for kingdom

A Saudi prince related to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's seemingly took aim at President Biden and the U.S., warning leaders not to threaten Saudi Arabia.

"Anybody that challenges the existence of this country and this kingdom. All of us, we are products of jihad, and martyrdom," Saudi Prince Saud al-Shaalan, who is married to one of the grandaughter's of the late King Abdulaziz Al Saud, said in a video that was posted to Twitter Saturday. "That's my message to anybody that thinks that it can threaten us."

^ See, look what Biden has done. He is endangering American people. There will be JIHAD on USA if Biden tries anything.
