Schumer is ideologically in favor of Nordstream

Report: Chuck Schumer Receives Campaign Donations from Russian Pipeline-Linked Affiliates

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who helped block sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 project, received campaign donations from corporate PACs affiliated with two of the European companies that helped fund the pipeline, according to a report from the Washington Free Beacon.

The corporate political action committees of ENGIE North America and BASF Corporation, two affiliates of European companies that are associated with the funding for Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline, gave $2,500 campaign contributions to Schumer’s campaign in September, according to records with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the report stated.

Reportedly, the parent company for ENGIE North America and a subsidiary for BASF are part of the group of five businesses that financed the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to transport natural gas from Russia to Germany.
