RINOs Jeff Flake, Cindy McCain Confirmed as Biden Admin. Ambassadors

'I will place holds on these nominees unless and until the Biden administration follows the law and stops this pipeline and imposes the sanctions...'

The Senate confirmed RINOs Jeff Flake, a former Arizona senator, and Cindy McCain, wife of the late John McCain, as ambassadors for President Joe Biden this week.

Flake will serve as Biden’s envoy to Turkey, and Cindy McCain will serve as the U.S. envoy to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture with the rank of ambassador.

Senate Republicans had blocked almost all of Biden’s ambassador appointments but let up this week “out of senatorial courtesy,” according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

However, only two other ambassadors besides Flake and McCain were confirmed. The other 40 appointments made by Biden will remain on hold until further notice because of Biden’s handling of a Russian pipeline, Cruz said.

“I’ve made clear to every State Department official, to every state department nominee, that I will place holds on these nominees unless and until the Biden administration follows the law and stops this pipeline and imposes the sanctions,” Cruz said back in August.

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., has also threatened to block Biden’s ambassador appointments over the president’s catastrophic handling of the Afghanistan military withdrawal.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, celebrated Flake and McCain’s confirmations this week, claiming the two Arizonans “care deeply about the success of our state and nation.”

Ducey, Flake, and McCain were all censored by the Arizona GOP last year — Flake and McCain for supporting Biden over former president Donald Trump, and Ducey for imposing “dictatorial” COVID-19 restrictions.
