Joe Biden reportedly received a sizable donation from a lobbyist in Russia before signing off on the Russian pipeline.
Is the media still interested in Russia collusion or are we not doing that anymore?
Also, does this mean that the Keystone XL Pipeline could have stayed open if someone had just given Biden a big donation?
The Washington Examiner reports:
Biden received funds from Russia lobbyist before conceding on major pipeline: Report
President Joe Biden received a sizable campaign contribution from a Russia lobbyist just months before declining to enforce sanctions on a Russian firm building the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, according to a report.
“He was not flagged during our vetting process,” a spokesperson for the Democratic National Committee told the New York Post regarding McLarty Associates Managing Partner Richard Burt, confirming the donation.
Burt, a former Republican and U.S. ambassador to Germany in the 1980s, made a pair of donations to assist Biden’s presidential election: a $4,000 contribution to Biden’s Victory Fund just ahead of the 2020 presidential election and a $10,000 donation to Unite The Country, a liberal political action committee, in March 2020.
“When Richard Burt donated to Biden Victory Fund, he failed to acknowledge that he was a registered foreign agent and was therefore ineligible to contribute,” the spokesman said. “Because Burt also listed a different employer than on his [Foreign Agents Registration Act] registration, he was not flagged during our vetting process.”
Can you even imagine what Democrats and the media would say if this was Trump?
This doesn’t include the $3.5 million that Biden’s family got from the family of Moscow’s mayor. Nothing to see here, folks.

This is a genuine scandal. The GOP should hammer this story until the media starts talking about it.
