According to the Washington Examiner, U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is calling for an audit into the billions of dollars that the United States, under the leadership of President Joe Biden, has sent to Ukraine during its war with Russia.
Greene, this week, reintroduced a piece of legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives that would force such an audit to be conducted. The legislation was reintroduced on Friday, which was the one-year anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Greene spoke about the legislation during an appearance that she made on the Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson Tonight.
There, Greene told host Tucker Carlson that the legislation is "going to force Congress to give the American people an audit."
Greene argued that this is necessary "because we have no idea where all this money is going."
“I’m introducing this resolution, and I’m looking forward to seeing my Republican colleagues support it," Greene said. "There’s not bipartisan support among the American people for fighting a war in Ukraine that does nothing for Americans except force them to pay for it.”
Greene went on to argue that “Ukraine is the new Iraq." She said, "our country is run by stupid warmongers that are so clueless and disconnected with what the American people want that they are literally leading us into World War 3."
"That’s why I’m introducing a resolution to find out exactly where our money is going,” Greene said.
The legislation was first introduced in November 2022 when it was narrowly defeated as the Democrats were still in the majority.
Greene is hoping that this time, considering that the Republicans now have the majority in the House, the legislation will be passed.
Meanwhile, the White House is pushing back on Greene's implication, insisting that there is nothing improper going on with regard to the funds sent to Ukraine.
National Security Council strategic communications coordinator John Kirby said as much to reporters on Friday during a White House briefing.
"We have seen no indication to date that any of the resources or weapons we've provided to Ukraine have been misused, misplaced, stolen, sold on the black market or captured by the Russians," Kirby said.
Kirby, in fact, even went on to claim that the White House welcomes congressional oversight and accountability measures. If that is the case, then there is no reason why Greene's bill ought not to be passed by the House. Let's see what is actually happening with those billions of dollars.
