Joe Biden Formally Endorses Speaker Mike Johnson’s Ukraine Funding Scheme

The Biden administration on Friday formally supported House Speaker Mike Johnson’s (R-Louisiana) plan to fund Ukraine’s border defense.

The endorsement is an effort to rally House Democrats to seize effective control of the Republican-controlled House.

Democrats have a reason to bail out Johnson: He’s not former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. “McCarthy was incompetent and dishonest.” Said Congressman Dan Kildee (D-Mich.) said, “Johnson is incompetent.”

Historic: House vote to remove Kevin McCarthy as Speaker

US House of Representatives

White House statement: “The Administration strongly supports House passage of the additional national security package.” read Friday. “This supplement provides more than $95 billion in funding for critical bipartisan national security priorities.”

Breitbart News’ Bradley Jay reported that Johnson made history late Thursday by relying on Democrats on the House Rules Committee to pass the proposed rules through the House over majority opposition. Ta.

The committee voted 9-3, with all four Democrats and five Republicans on the committee voting to move the proposed rules to the House floor. If the rule passes with Democratic support as expected, it would allow a vote on Johnson’s foreign aid package. It includes tens of billions of dollars to finance Ukraine.

Conservative Reps. Chip Roy (R-Texas), Thomas Massey (R-Kentucky), and Ralph Norman (R-South Carolina) voted against it.

On Friday, after the rules vote, Democrats publicly boasted The next step in the plan is to take control of the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. “The world is watching. It’s time for Congress to act. And we must act.” Said Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA), the top Democrat on the Rules Committee.

Anti-establishment Republicans are furious with Johnson for reversing aid to Ukraine, but so far no members are willing to pull the trigger to remove him from the chair.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) asked:

The question everyone should be asking is how Chairman Johnson worked with Hakeem Jeffries to get Democrats on the Rules Committee to vote in favor of Republican rules on a foreign war package that included more than $60 billion in additional funding for Ukraine. I wonder if they made such an arrangement.

“Democrats not voting for Republican rules and vice versa. This is unprecedented,” she added. “This vote also took place around midnight, when no one was paying attention.”

Breitbart says Johnson, who had previously opposed subsidies to Urcain, had his support for Ukraine reversed by his top policy adviser, a former lobbyist whose clients included several major companies, who had issued corporate statements expressing interest in the war.・News reported exclusively on Wednesday.

Mr. Johnson’s policy director, Dan Ziegler, was a lobbyist at Williams & Jensen before Mr. Johnson was elected speaker of the House last year and joined the House as his top policy aide. He had previously worked for Mr. Johnson in another capacity, but he left the company to become a lobbyist and amassed a client list that included some of the top companies. Some of the companies appeared to have a financial interest in Congress passing aid to Ukraine. The lobbying firm he worked for represented many top companies. Lobbying disclosures revealed that Mr. Ziegler represented many of these companies. This includes companies that have issued corporate statements about the war in Ukraine or issued press statements or other public guidance that could affect their business operations.

Ziegler is not the only member of Johnson’s inner circle with problems. Several other staff members working for Mr. Johnson also have a series of background issues, and it is unclear at this point whether Mr. Johnson himself is aware of all of them. Either way, this raises serious questions about his management of Congress and his handling of major legislative proposals like the foreign aid plan in Congress this week. And this undermines the explanation offered by some Johnson defenders that Johnson is simply having trouble managing. They have a one-seat majority, and that won’t change even if he resigns and Republicans choose a new speaker.

The Breitbart News investigation included an investigation into lobbying, interviews with numerous well-connected insiders (most of whom would not speak on the record for fear of retribution), and aggressive questioning of the Speaker’s office and its staff. This is the result of extensive interrogation (including cross-examination). Top aides. Here, for the first time, you’ll learn how globalists undermined the America First movement from within Chairman Johnson’s office, and how the chairman himself launched attacks on conservatives and supporters of former President Donald Trump. revealed the inside story of how they allowed globalists to be scorched. They are holding him accountable and trying to block four foreign aid plans he outlined Monday night and introduced Wednesday. The House will vote Saturday night on a plan that would abandon border security altogether and instead push tens of billions of dollars in U.S. tax dollars to go to foreign countries such as Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. It’s planned. This latest episode comes amid a series of recent betrayals by the Chairman – recent government funding plans and last week’s reauthorization of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which does not require a warrant for surveillance of Americans. This further irritates America First conservatives. . There have been calls for his resignation from top conservative Republicans, such as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), but if necessary, Despite saying he was prepared to move a resolution to remove Johnson by force, Johnson tripled his efforts. In addition to completely ignoring conservatives aligned with former President Donald Trump who have publicly criticized the effort, staffers like Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and allies to attack them to achieve their goals and move the issue forward. That this radical agenda be passed by Congress. As Breitbart News reported early Wednesday, Mr. McCaul launched a no-holds-barred attack on Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) over his support for Ukraine. Mr McCaul is one of Mr Johnson’s most powerful allies. approved immediately The foreign aid framework was introduced without even reading the plan, as it had not yet been introduced at the time Prime Minister Boris Johnson publicly supported it.A day later, he finally goes to the chairman’s office.
