Report: GOP angry with Biden admin over Nord Stream 2

Republican staffers are angered by the Biden administration's response to the Russia-Germany gas pipeline project Nord Stream 2, asking State Department officials why they haven't moved on with more sanctions to stop the project, Axios reported on Saturday.

According to sources familiar with this week's meetings between congressional staffers and State Department officials, one Republican asked stated: "You have determined that sanctionable activity was occurring related to the pipeline. What is the sort of information that you would need to get to confirm for yourself that the company that runs the operation that you just sanctioned is engaged in sanctionable activity?"

The Biden administration has so far failed to take action against the project as it nears its completion. The Nord Stream 2 project constructed by Gazprom is referred to as "Putin's pipeline" by Republicans.
