White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday said House Republicans are trying to raise energy prices on American families.
This is next-level gaslighting.
Biden’s incompetent Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm joined Karine Jean-Pierre in Monday’s briefing to discuss the bill Republicans are expected to vote on soon.
Biden’s White House argues the Republicans’ oil bill that would prevent the Department of Energy from releasing barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve will result in oil shortages and raise prices.
“The House Republicans’ latest attempt to raise prices for American families will result in oil supply shortages and help Putin’s war aims by interfering with our ability to release oil,” Karine Jean-Pierre said as she introduced Granholm.
She said this with a straight face.

Joe Biden and the Democrats destroy everything they touch.
The Biden Regime is looking to pay $80 per barrel to fill the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
Biden waged a war on domestic oil production as soon as he was sworn into office.
On his first day in office, Joe Biden killed off 42,100 jobs by ending construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and the end of construction of the Trump border wall.
After waging a war on domestic production, Joe Biden (possibly illegally) released millions of barrels of oil from US Strategic Oil Reserves.
Now Joe Biden wants to fill the Strategic Reserves with $80 per barrel oil.
Just two years ago the Democrats blocked President Trump from filling the Strategic Oil Reserves at $24 per barrel.
The Democrats cost the US BILLIONS in potential profits, Bloomberg News reported in September.
