Cruz blocks Biden nominees going into Senate recess

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz blocked the confirmation of numerous State Department nominees on Wednesday, leaving Biden’s picks unresolved as the Senate departs for its summer break.

The nominees were presented in a final round on Wednesday, with Cruz blocking each one, along with help from Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee.

“I know the hour is late, but we have nearly 30 highly qualified foreign affairs and development nominees who are languishing on the Senate floor. We have to confirm these nominees to fully equip the United States to pursue our foreign policy objectives,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Menendez said, according to The Hill.

Cruz tweeted, “Joe Biden’s decision to waive #NordStream2 sanctions will be a generational geopolitical mistake.

“I’ve made it clear to Biden’s State Dept that I will place holds on nominees unless AND until the Biden admin follows the law by imposing sanctions and stops this pipeline.”

Cruz connected the block on Biden’s nominees to the president’s waiving of sanctions to allow Russia to build a new oil pipeline. Just months earlier, Biden signed an executive order stopping construction of the American Keystone XL pipeline.

Cruz may be criticized for the action, but his move is strategic. He refuses to back down to Biden’s agenda, doing what he can when Republicans are in the minority to put a stop to the left’s radical agenda.
