John Kirby Denies U.S. Involvement In Nordstream Pipeline Damage

  • White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said the claim that the United States played a role in the explosions along the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines is a “completely false story.”
  • Seymour Hersh, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist and former New Yorker staff writer, released information in a Substack post on Feb. 8 claiming that the Nord Stream pipeline bursts were carried out by U.S. Navy divers disguised as a NATO military exercise.
  • “It is a completely false story; there is no truth to it, Shannon,” Kirby said to Fox News Sunday host Shannon Bream. “Not a shred of it; it is not true. The United States, and no proxies from the United States, had anything to do with that. Nothing.”
