Staatsdepartement se inligtingsessies word hewig terwyl verslaggewer vra of Biden-admin krediet kry vir Trump-prestasies
An Associated Press reporter took State Department spokesman Ned Price to task Monday for suggesting that President Joe Biden was responsible for a policy that had started under the Trump administration.
Prys, beklemtoon 'n verslag wat aan die Kongres gestuur is, het sommige gesê 18 entiteite betrokke geraak het “goeie trou pogings” om hul betrokkenheid by Nord Stream af te skaal 2, 'n omstrede $ 11 billion pipeline project designed to transmit Russian natural gas to Germany.
Kritici van die Kremlin het gesê die projek sal die hoeveelheid natuurlike gas wat uit Rusland ingevoer word, verdubbel. As dit voltooi is, it would leave Europe more dependent on Russian energy than ever before. The poisoning of Russian dissident Alexei Navalny has revitalized calls for the project to be abandoned.
Op Maandag se perskonferensie, Price seemed to suggest that the Biden administration’s efforts had led to the development on Nord Stream 2. The aforementioned entities have wound down their activities in the pipeline project, Price gesê, and demonstrated that Biden and Congress’s strategy have been “working to good effect.”
Associated Press, verslaggewer Matt Lee, stuur 'n draai, Price vertel dat al hierdie werk onder die Trump-administrasie begin het.
“Julle is nog net 'n maand op kantoor, reg? Vertel u my dat hierdie in die afgelope vier weke? 18 maatskappye het skielik besluit om te sê, ‘O my God! Ons moet beter niks met Nord Stream 2 doen nie,” Lee gesê. “Julle neem eer vir dinge wat die vorige regering gedoen het. Ja of nee?”
Prys, merkbaar geskok, het gesê dat hy net namens die staatsdepartement gepraat het - beset deur dieselfde mense voordat Biden sy amp ingeneem het.
Die hewige woordewisseling het plaasgevind nadat die regering in Biden Vrydag 'n laag sanksies by 'n Russiese vaartuig en die redder gevoeg het vir hul werk aan die pyplynprojek. KLIK HIER VIR MEER OOR ONS TOPVERHAAL.

Here are 3 questions AG nominee Merrick Garland dodged from Senate Republicans
Judge Merrick Garland, President Biden’s attorney general nominee, repeatedly avoided providing direct answers to questions from Republican senators during Monday’s hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Garland dodged questions about the Durham investigation into the Trump-Russia probe origins, transgender athletes in high school sports and whether crossing the border illegally should be a criminal offense.
Sy. Josh Hawley, R-MO, asked Garland whether he belives that illegally crossing the border should remain a crime.
“I haven’t thought about that question, I just haven’t thought about that question” Garland said. “The president has made clear that we are a nation with borders, with national security, I don’t know of a proposal to decriminalize but still make it unlawful to answer, I just haven’t thought about it.”
Garland similarly declined to make a firm commital to leaving Special Counsel John Durham in place to continue his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. Garland said he has “no reason” to think that leaving Durham in place to continue his investigation was the wrong decision, but declined to commit to a course of action. KLIK HIER VIR MEER.

Boeing grounded again after United engine fire
The National Transportation Safety Board on Monday said a maintenance records group will be formed to investigate the Boeing 777 engine’s history after it failed on United Airlines flight #328 and erupted into flames shortly after takeoff on Saturday.
“Our mission is to understand not only what happened but why it happened so we can keep it from happening again,” NTSB chairman Robert Sumwalt said at a Monday evening press conference.
Sumwalt emphasized that the investigation is still in its preliminary stages. Asked whether the particular engine had been inspected after another engine failure on a Southwest Airlines flight in 2018, Sumwalt said that was a question that will be answered pending a maintenance group investigation.
Boeing has recommended that airlines ground all 777s with the type of engine that blew apart after takeoff from Denver this past weekend, and most carriers that fly those planes said they would temporarily pull them from service. KLIK HIER VIR MEER.

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Sean Hannity Monday night to discuss President Biden’s Cabinet nominee confirmation hearings.
“Garland has a good reputation as a judge,” Cruz gesê. “He has a reputation as a being relatively non-partisan as a judge. I would say his hearing was frustrating as it went on today because he basically dodged every question. He refused to answer – he answered like a judicial nominee, and not like a nominee to be attorney general.”
