During Friday’s Press Briefing, White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, spoked about Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s shift in political affiliation and human rights abuses in Iran.

In Jean-Pierre’s opening remarks, she emphasized the Biden administration’s new 275 million dollar security package to assist Ukraine in its defense against Russian aggression.

The security package will provide Ukrainians with new capabilities to boost air defenses and counter the threats posed by Iranian weapons currently being used by President Vladimir Putin to kill Ukrainian civilians and destroy the nation’s infrastructure.

“The package involves critical equipment that Ukraine is using to effectively defend themselves,” noted Jean-Pierre.

The press secretary answered a wave of questions regarding Kyrsten Sinema’s decision to register as an independent in Arizona.

According to Jean-Pierre, Sinema played a crucial role in a list of historic legislations made by the Biden administration, such as the Inflation Reduction Act.

“We understand her decision to register as an independent in Arizona. We believe that does not change the new democratic majority, since we still have control of the Senate,” added Jean-Pierre.
Following Warnock’s win in Georgia earlier this week, the Democrats gained control of the Senate.

Jean-Pierre maintains that Biden’s administration has every reason to expect that they will continue to work with Sinema in the future, considering that she has “voted with the president 93% of the times.”
On December 9th, the US and Canada released a joint statement on the human rights situation in Iran.
During the Press Briefing, Jean-Pierre reiterated US’ commitment to supporting the Iranian people. Together with its allies, the US will continue to impose sanctions on those responsible for the brutal crackdown in Iran.

“We will stand with Iranian civilians as they fight for their basic human rights,” added Jean-Pierre.
According to the joint statement, the US and Canada “have taken coordinated sanctions “against Iranian officials connected to human rights abuses, including those committed as part of the ongoing “brutal crackdown” aimed at denying the Iranian people their human rights and fundamental freedoms.

“The world is watching,” noted Jean-Pierre when addressing the attacks by Iranian officials on peaceful protesters.
