In a letter, he wrote to Secretary of State Blinken saying, “The Committee is investigating reports of a ‘secret deal to boost oil production’ between the Biden Administration and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
He went on to say, “If his Administration is engaging in backdoor market manipulations with adversarial nations while jeopardizing our national security for the sake of securing more favorable election conditions for Democrats, the American people have a right to know.”
