Schumer Goes ‘Nuts’ During Classified Briefing On Ukraine

  • Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was reportedly incensed during a classified Senate intelligence briefing on Ukraine Tuesday after multiple Republican senators brought up security at the U.S. southern border.
  • The briefing included top Biden administration and military officials such as Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Charles Q. Brown Jr., The Hill reported. Sens. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) reportedly grilled the senior officials in the room, asking them pointed questions about the importance of securing the southern border.
  • “I asked Gen. Brown [for] his best military advice. Is supporting Ukraine and Israel important enough that Democrats could at least consider reluctantly supporting some southern border security? He wanted to talk about Ukraine,” Cramer said.
