(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) President Joe Biden‘s sale of the United States’s emergency oil reserves to China is an impeachable—and perhaps even indictable—offense, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson said Wednesday in the opening monologe of his popular primetime show.
“It turns out, the oil being released isn’t for us,” Carlson said. “It’s going to India and China! As gas prices hit record highs in the United States and many American citizens can’t afford to fuel their own cars, the Biden administration is selling off our emergency oil reserves to China.”
Biden reportedly sold oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to foreign nations—including America’s top geopolitical adversary—while claiming he was tapping into the supply to help drive down domestic fuel costs.
Even using the reserves for such a trivial and self-inflicted crisis drew criticism from some, including former President Donald Trump, who released a statement in November touting his own efforts to replenish the dwindling supply.
“Those reserves are meant to be used for serious emergencies, like war, and nothing else,” Trump said. “Now I understand that Joe Biden will be announcing an ‘attack’ on the newly brimming Strategic Oil Reserves so that he could get the close to record-setting high oil prices artificially lowered.”
Biden’s release of the supplies made nary a dent in domestic gas costs, which have since gone on to shatter the national-average record established by former President George W. Bush during the war in Iraq.
Biden has deflected from his own role in the current crisis, blaming everything from Russia, to Trump, to corporate greed, to the coronavirus instead of accepting responsibility.
According to Carlson, though, Biden’s plan is “so crazy, and so dangerous, that only someone who was trying to intentionally harm the United States would even consider it.”
It has also harmed the nation’s ability to be self-sufficient, especially in respect to energy.
“We can produce the energy here—and, in fact, were producing the energy here until Joe Biden took office,” Carlson noted, adding that opening the reserves should have reduced fuel prices, but did not.
“They haven’t dropped,” he said. “They’ve kept going up.”
According to Carlson, Biden ought to suffer some public consequence for his failures as the leader of the nation.
“That’s not an indictable offense?” he said. “Certainly it’s an impeachable one—and they should impeach him for that.”
Of course, this should come as no surprise. Biden has surrounded himself with China supporters for decades, and has long benefited from his family connections there.
A recent tweet from RealClear Investigations’s Paul Sperry indicated that the president’s son Hunter might even be under FBI surveillance due to his ongoing Chinese business ties, which pose a national-security threat.

According to former Director of National Intelligence and Congressman John Ratcliffe, the Biden administration, like the Biden family, is compromised by foreign interests, even allowing the world’s top private investment-fund manager, the multi-trillion-dollar BlackRock, to dictate policy at the Cabinet level.
“Joe Biden’s top economic advisor is Brian Dietz who was a BlackRock executive,” he told Fox’s Laura Ingraham, as reported by American Greatness. “Last week he named Tom Donilon his top foreign advisory on China, also a BlackRock executive.”
