State Department spox Ned Price
AP reporter Matt Lee grilled State Department spokesman Ned Price on Brandon’s sanctions against Russia.
Brandon on Thursday announced he sanctioned 4 Russian banks – after Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.
Putin already factored in sanctions when he decided to invade Ukraine so Brandon is once again struggling to keep up.
Brandon’s “devastating” sanctions on Russia include a huge list of exemptions.
For example, Brandon won’t sanction Russian oil – but he froze ALL new oil and gas drilling projects in the US just THREE DAYS AGO.
After pointing out the ‘huge’ list of exemptions in Brandon’s sanctions, AP reporter Matt Lee asked Ned Price, “Can you point to something specific that is now no longer able to be talked about with Russians?”
