Bridenstine and Turner have discovered something that we have been doing for about 15 years. It’s not high level military technology and I suspect that these two muldoons will vote for the bill as have their Republican colleagues since the Bush Administration.
You should actually read the press release. Within it, there is a link to the letter they sent to the Sec of Energy, in which they ask for the ingelligence assessment on whether or not Russia could use the equipment for anything other than nuclear nonproliferation. They also note that we have been doing this. Everything you’ve said is pretty much confirmed therein.
