    @ChadPergram 1) Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and 3 GOP senators just met Zelenskyy in Kyiv. Also there: John Barrasso (R-WY) Susan Collins (R-ME) John Cornyn (R-TX) 2) Note this comes as the Senate is trying to align with the House and approve $40 billion in Ukraine assistance. There is a procedural vote Monday night to break a filibuster. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) is singled-handedly holding this up. 3) If Paul sticks to his guns, it may take the Senate until the end of next week to approve the bill. Paul wants an inspector general to oversee the money...
  • Senator Rand Paul Blocks Fast-Track Senate Vote for $40 Billion Additional Ukraine Funding

    Senator Rand Paul has blocked a fast-track senate vote on the additional $40 billion funding package created by Joe Biden and House Democrats. Both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell approved a fast-track vote; however, senator Rand Paul (KY) stood defiant against their effort. Despite the high-profile pressure from the two Senate leaders, Rand Paul refused to move and that means the Senate will have to take procedural steps to overcome his objection, which could take several days. “My oath of office is the US constitution not to any foreign nation and no matter how...
  • Manchin says he will wait until TOMORROW to reveal if he will back Senate abortion bill with suggestion Democrats will struggle to get fifty votes

    West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin said he'll 'wait and see' what Democrats say in their weekly lunches Tuesday before deciding how he'll vote on the Senate abortion bill. Manchin - a moderate Democrat and key swing vote - made the comments Monday to NBC News, as a floor vote on the legislation is expected Wednesday. With Manchin on the fence, it's unclear if the Democrats will even get all 50 senators in their own caucus to vote for the Women's Health Protection Act - far short of the 60 needed from members of both parties to override a Republican filibuster...

    Former President Donald Trump chastised Pennsylvania Republican Senate contender David McCormick over his ties to China and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Friday. Standing in the rain at a rally in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, to bolster TV celebrity Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is locked in a tight race with McCormick, the former president panned McCormick for not being "MAGA" enough.

  • Mitch McConnell says federal abortion ban is 'possible' if Roe v Wade is overturned - sparking Democrats to urge Biden to push legislation protecting woman's right to choose

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says a federal abortion ban is 'possible' if the Supreme Court rules to overturn Roe v. Wade. 'If the leaked opinion became the final opinion, legislative bodies - not only at the state level but at the federal level - certainly could legislate in that area,' McConnell, of Kentucky, told USA Today on Thursday. 'And if this were the final decision, that was the point that it should be resolved one way or another in the legislative process. So yeah, it's possible.' However, McConnell remained cautious when addressing whether Republicans would pass abortion banning legislation...
  • Hutchinson: National abortion ban floated by McConnell is ‘inconsistent with what we’ve been fighting for’

    Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) on Sunday said a national abortion ban floated by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is “inconsistent with what we’ve been fighting for.” McConnell told USA Today in an interview published on Saturday that a national ban on abortions is “possible,” as the country reacts to a drafted majority opinion from the Supreme Court that shows the bench poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. Asked by anchor Martha Raddatz on ABC’s “This Week” if he would oppose a national ban on the medical procedure, Hutchinson said such a move may have “some constitutional issues.” “I...

    Celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz, who is running as a Republican for Senate in Pennsylvania, has sidestepped questions about Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in the past, saying he has done things that are “wonderful.” This revelation about Dr. Oz comes as former President Donald Trump, who backs the candidate, goes on the attack against McConnell, calling him a “crow” at his rally Friday night in Pennsylvania.

    At a time when President Biden is at 33 percent approval while Congress sits at 21 percent, there’s one politician who is seeing his numbers rise briskly: Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.). Overall, 57 percent of West Virginia voters approve of Manchin’s performance in the Mountain State. That’s a 17-point jump since Joe Biden took office in early 2021. No U.S. senator has seen a bigger increase in support than Manchin. More notably, the former governor has doubled his approval ratings among West Virginia Republicans, with a whopping 69 percent approving of his performance. For context, Biden’s approval in the state...

    Several prominent business executives hope Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) will defect to the Republican party and mount a presidential campaign against President Joe Biden, according to a report on Monday. Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) previously called on Manchin to switch over to the Republican Party, telling Fox News last year, “He would be a lot more comfortable on our side.”

    Last week, New York Times Reporter Jonathan Martin released his highly anticipated book, “This Will Not Pass’. The book tears open old wounds within both the Democrat and Republican parties. Last month, Martin released excerpts from the book that exposed discord within the Biden administration, including Kamala Harris accusing Biden’s ‘white inner circle’ of being racist.The book also reveals that RINOs within the Republican Party were hand-wringing after the unrest that occurred on January 6th at the Capitol. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said that he was happy that President Trump had “finally, totally discredited himself” after the ‘Stop the...

    When it comes to January 6, there are no coincidences. A dirty little secret about January 6—one of many—is that Democrats and establishment Republicans, not Trump supporters, wanted to shut down the official proceedings of that day. Just as the first wave of protesters breached the building shortly after 2 p.m., congressional Republicans were poised to present evidence of rampant voting fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Ten incumbent and four newly-elected Republican senators planned to work with their House colleagues to demand the formation of an audit commission to investigate election “irregularities” in the 2020 election. Absent an audit,...

    Josh Mandel, once the flamboyant conservative frontrunner for the nomination who now looks threatened by the Trump-endorsed J.D. Vance, dished to GOPers in Washington that at least part of his absurd, extreme campaign rhetoric … is an act.From the book:Mandel, acknowledged to Republicans in Washington that he was parroting absurd rhetoric in the primary campaign out of a desire to court Trump and his supporters — but that was simply what he believed it would take to win.”In fact even as he publicly mimicked Trump’s incendiary rhetoric, Mandel would privately reach out to McConnell’s top lieutenants to alert them each...

    The one question that all politicians running for US Senate should be asked is – whether they stand with President Trump or Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell has shown his true colors. They’re not pretty. ..... Snip...... In a new book McConnell’s actions on Jan 6 were uncovered. In the hours after supporters of Donald Trump laid siege to the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, House Republican Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly said he was “exhilarated” that the then-president had finally tarnished his reputation. “I feel exhilarated by the fact that this fellow finally, totally discredited himself,” McConnell told Jonathan Martin,...

    In a leaked recording of Kevin McCarthy on a call with Liz Cheney and other House Republicans, the Minority Leader told Cheney that he would counsel Trump to resign back on January 10, 2021. “I think [impeachment resolutions] will pass, and it would be my recommendation you should resign,” McCarthy said he would tell Trump before further adding, “what he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that and nobody should defend it.” Liz Cheney had pressed McCarthy about whether Trump could possibly choose to resign on his own: “Is there any chance? Are you hearing that he might resign? Is...

    Dirty Republican Senator Mitch McConnell is going to spend $7 million on Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, who has voted for every anti-American bill possible while in the Senate. Mitch McConnell does not stand with the Republican Party, the Trump-Republican base (the largest base in US history), or America. His choice to support Lisa Murkowski in Alaska is appalling. Why not give $7 million to the Democrats? The Daily Mail is reporting that McConnell is supporting Murkowski in Alaska with a $7 million dollar spend. Imagine how much misinformation you could create with that amount of money. Senate Minority Leader Mitch...
