Senators Paul, Lee Introduce Resolution Condemning the Biden Administration's Unconstitutional Security Guarantees to Ukraine


WASHINGTON, D.C. Yesterday, Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT) introduced a resolution emphasizing the need for Senate oversight and consideration of the Biden administration's bilateral agreement to provide long-term security guarantees to Ukraine. This agreement, which effectively serves as a backdoor into NATO membership for Ukraine, bypasses Congress and the Constitution by not following the treaty process and restricts future administrations from adjusting the United States' strategic posture toward Ukraine.



"President Biden's bilateral security agreement with Ukraine commits America to yet another endless war. This deal risks entrapping future administrations to a prolonged military engagement without a clear exit strategy or sufficient burden-sharing from our European allies. We must prioritize American interests and avoid endless foreign entanglements," said Dr. Rand Paul.



"The Biden administration's decision to sidestep the Constitution and the Senate's role in treaty ratification is unacceptable," said Senator Lee. "This agreement not only circumvents the Constitution but also ties the hands of future administrations. Such significant commitments must be subject to thorough scrutiny by the Senate."



The Senators' resolution makes it clear that the Senate must have the opportunity to review the agreement as a treaty through the constitutionally mandated advice and consent process. This ensures that the Constitution is upheld and that the long-term strategic implications for the United States are carefully considered.
