The Biden Administration has secretly sent “deeply worrying” appeasements to Russian President Vladimir Putin and is keeping the embarrassing details of the concessions from the American people, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says.

Late Friday afternoon, Cruz tweeted video of comments he made on the Senate floor, in which he says that the Biden Administration has sent a list of appeasements to Putin.

Cruz says he has seen the concessions, which make Ukraine more vulnerable to Russian invasion:

“They’re looking to pile appeasement on top of appeasement – and they’re doing it in secret.

“The Biden Administration has offered Putin sweeping concessions on NATO, when it comes to troops, when it comes to missiles, when it comes to military exercises.

“They transmitted this appeasement to Putin in secret – and refused to let Americans see the details. I’ve seen the details and I can tell you they’re deeply worrying.”

“The reason the public hasn’t seen them is the administration has placed them in a secure SKIFF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility),” Sen. Cruz explained, noting that the documents are not classified – just politically-embarrassing to the Biden Administration:

“They’re not classified, mind you, they’re merely, quote, ‘confidential’ – which is Washington-speak for politically-embarrassing and the administration doesn’t want to defend the substance of them.”
