If it has Trump’s name on it, it has to go… that it the edict of the Biden administration.
In yet another baffling move to erase all things Trump from the record books, Joe Biden has reversed sanctions put on officials of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The ICC’s primary role is to investigate war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity.
In September 2020, sanctions were imposed on former ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda.
Bensouda was reportedly investigating American troops for war crimes in Afghanistan.
Additionally, the same sanctions were imposed against Phakiso Mochochoko, the ICC’s Head of the Jurisdiction, who assisted with the Investigation.
Ironically, while removing the sanctions on these officials, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken stated that the United States rejects the accusations made by the ICC.
He stated, “These decisions reflect our assessment that the measures adopted were inappropriate and ineffective.
“We continue to disagree strongly with the ICC’s actions relating to the Afghanistan and Palestinian situations.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), of course, applauded the sanctions being lifted.
She stated, “If we are to live up to our values of respect for human rights and democratic norms, United States should be leading the pursuit of international justice, not blocking it.”
This sounds eerily similar to the Biden administration opening up the checkbook for the World Health Organization (WHO) again after Biden took over the White House.
Even though the WHO is openly corrupt, Biden agreed to fund them again simply for appearance’s sake, which seems to be the same here.
