Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, blocked the confirmation of dozens of State Department nominees Wednesday morning in an effort to pressure the Biden administration over Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

  • “I have made clear to every State Department official, to every State Department nominee, that I will place holds on these nominees unless and until the Biden administration follows the law and stops this pipeline and imposes the sanctions,” Cruz said Wednesday morning.
  • A spokesperson for Cruz’s office previously told Fox News that the senator “will use all leverage and prerogatives he has as a U.S. senator to get the Biden administration to follow the law and implement congressional mandates to sanction and stop completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.” 
  • “That includes holding State Department nominations that the Biden administration and Senate Democrats have advanced to the confirmation stage.”
