George Clooney called the White House to complain about Biden's criticism of wife Amal's work

Biden disagreed. “The ICC Prosecutor's application for arrest warrants against Israeli leaders is outrageous,” he said in his own statement. “And let me be clear: whatever this accuser may imply, there is no equality – none – between Israel and Hamas. We will always support Israel against threats to its security.”

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives approved a bill that would impose sanctions on the ICC. While Biden initially seemed open to the idea, his administration is now “strongly opposed” to the measure because it “could require sanctions against court personnel, judges, witnesses and U.S. allies and partners who provide even limited, targeted support to the court in a range of areas. aspects of his work.”

After the president's initial response last month, Clooney called Steve Richettiadviser to the president, to express concern about Biden's disapproval of the ICC's efforts, especially his use of the word “outrageous,” and the possibility of sanctions that could hit Amal, three anonymous sources familiar with the conversation The Washington Post.
