Fox’s Maria Bartiromo wonders if Biden wants Ukraine ‘to be taken down’
Fox News host Maria Bartiromo just asked the question Sunday morning as she wondered if the White House wanted to see Ukraine “taken down” and was looking to “sell out” the country.
Bartiromo’s curious questions came less than an hour after she confirmed on air that “several people” had told her that the White House does not consider Russian President Vladimir Putin an enemy but a “partner.” ” during the Ukraine crisis.
In an interview with Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Fox News’ Sunday morning futures contractSouth Carolina lawmaker apparently revealed himself as one of the anchor that drives Trump Sources to her claim that President Joe Biden will serve Putin throughout the war for their mutual benefit.
“The Biden administration sees Putin as more of a climate change partner and a producer of the Iran Deal than as a war criminal,” Graham said. “Biden is more afraid of Putin losing than excited about Ukraine winning. Let you hear it from me. Victory for Ukraine! ”
Describing the US strategy towards Ukraine as a “slow step”, Bartiromo then asked the Republican senator if the US and its NATO allies could do more “without turn this into World War III or not.” For his part, Graham stressed that fears of a potential world war were overblown.
“It was all a hoax. Putin knows that. Nobody wins in a nuclear exchange,” he replied. “I am calling for the crushing of the Russian economy. Whether our war and war are not with the Russian people, but with Putin.”
Then Graham doubled the number his a call for the Russian leader to be assassinatedadded that “the only way this war is going to end is for Putin to go to jail or get kicked out by his own people.”
After the hawkish senator criticized the administration for stopping the delivery of Polish jets to Ukraine more concerned that it “could be mistaken for an escalation”, Bartiromo then brought up Israel’s attempt to broker peace talks between Russia and Ukraine. Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett spoke to the leaders of both countries and even reportedly urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky surrendered. (Both Ukraine and Israel deny those reports, and the Israeli foreign minister has since condemned the unprovoked Russian invasion.)
Graham, a pro-Israel, said that he understands Israel’s current position, pointing out that it relies on Russia to coordinate security in Syrian territory as Israel carries out anti-terrorist strikes against its allies. targets of Iran and Hezbollah. At the same time, the senator said he opposes any ceding of Ukrainian territory to Russia.
“It cannot end with the sell-off of Ukraine,” he said. “It cannot end when we give half of Ukraine to Putin. What he will do is consolidate his power and a year or two from now will take the rest. Because he doesn’t want a buffer zone from NATO. He wanted to rebuild the Soviet Union.”
Graham continued: “I think the Ukrainians can win, but what breaks my heart is that Biden seems to be more worried about Putin losing than Ukraine winning. And that is despicable and sad! ”
Following Graham’s remarks, Bartiromo then asked Trump’s henchmen an extremely payload question that showed the White House was actively working against an American ally over an enemy that led to an increasingly war. bloody against it.
“So you think this is a sell-off of Ukraine by both the Biden administration as well as the Israelis, likely wanting to see Ukraine taken down?” Bartiromo exclaimed.
However, Graham wants to make it clear that he doesn’t think that’s the case for Israel. As for the White House, well, not so much.
“I’m not saying that about Israel, I’m saying they’re discussing it with Putin – he’s a war criminal,” he claimed. “Ultimately he wants all of Ukraine, and he’ll take it if we don’t stop him here.”
Graham added: “I don’t think Israel is selling out Ukraine, I don’t think the Biden administration is doing anything about this war. The reason they are so slow in military aid to the Ukrainians is that they never expect Putin to lose and they cannot embrace the idea that he will lose! “
Notably, nowhere in this interview are Graham or Bartiromo mentioned Former President Donald Trump continued to reluctantly criticize Putin—Or note that Trump was impeached for threatens to cut off military aid to Ukraine to pressure the country to investigate Biden before the 2020 election.
Over the past few weeks, Bartiromo — along with many of her Fox News colleagues—Appeared all over the map with her commentary on the growing international crisis. In fact, just days before Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Bartiromo keeps recommending that the White House is making up the threat of war to distract Fox News non-stop misinformation in Special Counsel John Durham’s latest filings.
“Is this whole thing an attempt to draw people’s attention away from what Hillary Clinton did?” Bartiromo stated at one point, emphasizing that the administration was interfering with the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.
