GOP lawmakers want Biden impeached over SPR oil sale to Chinese firm

It’s bad enough that under President Joe Biden, the U.S. is selling valuable oil from its Strategic Petroleum Reserve to other countries. It’s even worse when a communist Chinese energy company with ties to Hunter Biden is on the receiving end of that oil.

That’s exactly what happened in April, as it was reported recently that nearly 1 million barrels of SPR American oil were sold to “Unipec America, the American arm of what is China’s biggest energy company owned by China Petrochemical Corporation,” The Epoch Times reported, and some are already calling for the president’s impeachment as a result.

According to the bombshell report from The Washington Free Beacon, “The Biden administration sold roughly one million barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to a Chinese state-controlled gas giant that continues to purchase Russian oil, a move the Energy Department said would ‘support American consumers’ and combat ‘Putin’s price hike.'”

“Impeachable” was the word used to describe the situation by Republican Reps. Troy Nehls (TX) and Mike Loychik (OH).

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said: “The Biden Administration should not be sending our reserves, which we need for our country, to China. It is foolish and defies all common sense.”

It’s unclear if the Biden administration plans to sell additional barrels from the American stockpile.

Many pointed out that the decision to sell the oil to a communist-connected firm is just another highlight reel for Republican attack ads in November.
