"senator jim risch" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing

"A senior writer for CNN politics. I'm in for David chalian. I write the what matters newsletter here at CNN. David is out until March, so please be prepared to hear from some new voices, like mine. On the podcast in the coming weeks. This is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Thursday, February 17th, 2022. Information warfare, far from a deescalation, the standoff between Russia and the United States over Ukraine feels more tense every day. The White House has accused Russia of conducting potemkin diplomacy. It's a reference to the 18th century Russian potemkin villages built only a facade without anything behind them. The idea here is that Russia is making stuff up. Russia claims to be trying to defuse the situation and pulling back, but the U.S. is seeing evidence to the contrary. The U.S. government continues to warn Russia could launch what it calls a false flag attack. Something essentially to justify an invasion of Ukraine. Possible false flag scenarios include claims by Russia of provocation in the Donbass region, a claim of NATO activity in land or air, where it claims of an incursion into Russian territory. It could also include false claims about mass graves, chemical or biological weapons activity, guerrilla activity, or genocide. Secretary of State Antony Blinken went to the United Nations Thursday and told the Security Council that Russia is laying the groundwork to justify starting a war and preparing to launch an attack on Ukraine in the coming days. Blinken made clear the U.S. is trying to prevent a war and not start one. We've been warning the Ukrainian government of all that is coming. And here today, we are laying it out in great detail with the hope that by sharing what we know with the world. We can influence Russia to abandon the path of war and choose a different path. While there's still time. Blinken is now en route to Munich for a global security conference on Friday and into the weekend, also there is vice president Kamala Harris. She's going to meet with Ukraine's president volodymyr zelensky. The international situation is very much in flux, but domestic politics of the Russia Ukraine situation are for now sounding relatively unified. Republicans have been supportive of President Biden and his effort to stand up to Putin without committing U.S. troops. Here's Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell talking about Biden's speech earlier this week. He was right to emphasize that the world will not shrug. Or stand idly by if Vladimir Putin tries to invade his neighbor or redraw the map of Europe through deadly force. I'm hopeful that President Biden will rise to the occasion. That wasn't all McConnell said the president would have overwhelming bipartisan support to use his existing executive authorities for tough sanctions against Russia in the event of a conflict. But there's a difference between bipartisan agreement and actual bipartisan action. There had been a bipartisan effort to pass a new slate of sanctions against Russia in advance of a potential invasion, but it's been delayed, and it likely won't pass before a possible invasion, the reason for that is because Congress, both the House and the Senate are scheduled to be out of session next week. Some of the sticking points over a sanctions Bill include differences over how to address the Nord stream two natural gas pipeline, which wants to install around Ukraine to pump natural gas into Germany, and there are differences over how to punish Russian bankers. Without that bipartisan sanctions Bill, senators were looking to pass a resolution of unity against Russia's aggression, but fell short of that, too. Instead they issued a statement which didn't require unanimous agreement. Democrats argue the differences between them and Republicans over sanctions Bill are largely technical. Here's senator Tim kaine of Virginia. We actually have agreed on the package. It's just that we had a different view on what should trigger the sanction should we do it before an invasion or should we wait for an invasion? But both sides are together, Democrat and Republican are what we will do. Republicans meanwhile showed a little bit of independence this week on Thursday they introduced their own sanctions Bill. Democrats slammed the move as political posturing since it includes a lot of the same things that were in the bipartisan proposal that didn't get passed. You'll like this, the Republican bill is called the never yielding Europe's territory act. NYT. Yet, get it? That's Russian for no. It would mandate sanctions on the Nord stream two project without a waiver if Russians should invade the bill would sanction Putin's quote cronies enablers and major banks. And it would provide $500 million in foreign military financing for Ukraine. Republicans like senator Jim risch save there is an invasion, a bipartisan sanctions bill will pass quickly. There are steps The White House is taking even without a sanctions package. Blinken announced a $1 billion in loan guarantees for Ukraine. He's also going to double U.S. funding for military exercises in Europe and create a new State Department foreign military financing program for Eastern Europe to help European allies strengthen their own defensive capabilities. There will be plenty of time for Republicans and Democrats to eventually come together on Russia and Ukraine and possible sanctions for Russia, and that's because as NATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg said today, the west will have to live on some level with this more aggressive Russia for a long time to come. But the God is whether Russia invades Ukraine or not. What we have seen so far, I'm afraid represents a new normal because what we have seen is that Russia has been willing to amass a large number of combat troops to try to intimidate and threaten Ukraine, but also try to threaten it to analyze. That's it for today's political briefing. I'm Zachary wolf, and thanks so much for listening. If you want more of me in my political analysis, subscribe to the what matters newsletter where we try to.

"DNC. Okay. Good luck with that, because he seems to be the greatest patriot that was on duty during the previous administration. Rosa, let me go to you on this is another excerpt. This is General Milley again, I have to say, is emerging as a pretty important in heroic American figure in this era. His heroic He's the greatest American patriot. This is the stuff of Hollywood movies about military takeovers of the United States, America and again when I read General Milley Saying he can't do it without us, The military, the FBI and the CIA were the ones with the guns. That is the reason for the Second Amendment in the bill of Rights, the geniuses that created this great experiment in freedom and liberty, although Joe Biden said, it's not about freedom and your liberty and I'm Schwarzenegger says, Screw your freedom. Rubio Freedoms I'm from Austria. My father of us did not see and screw your freedoms and now and this guy is calling 75 Million Patriotic Americans. You know normal people who build businesses joined the military. Their sons and daughters joined the military become police officers and the chairman of the joint Chiefs is threatening us. We're the ones with the guns in country after country where you see them taking away the guns. Uh And, uh, this is why the Second Amendment is the number two things in the bill of rights right after freedom of speech and press and religion and petitioning the government and all that good stuff. Well and honestly, he's the hero. He's the heroic figure. He's the greatest Patriots are corrupt, Left wing, not very bright, radical news media in the back pocket of the Democrat Party. Then speaking of the back pocket of the Democrat Party number another, uh, Democrat Party, uh, Democrat family, fake journalists with brain the size of a chestnut. Chris Cuomo has his own TV show on CNN. And he loves hearing about what Millie did General Mark Milley. You've got to know him a little bit more recently in politics, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Policy Angle handedly action. Twice single hand once right before the election, and then after January, 6th to block Trump from going rogue to limit him from potentially ordering a dangerous military strike or even launching nuclear weapons. Yeah, he usurped and seized authority that does not belong to him in what would be termed a coup a pooch. Uh, And at CNN with McGill, a gorilla up here, Fredo Cuomo the maybe I don't know A lot of competition. The dumbest man in news It's possible there is a lieutenant Colonel Alexander of Inman. You remember him? He was a treacherous treasonous usurper. During the Trump administration and a hero of these one that step, he spoke to the Ukrainian president, and he committed treason. Everybody accused everybody of trees in these days. Normally, there's nothing to it This time around, it might actually fit the definition. Um And I remember he was the hero, Uh, Alexander of Inman in his dress, Blue uniform, his Army uniform, Lieutenant Colonel, and he thought he was the commander in chief or something, and he undermined the president and that you read the transcript of that phone call. There's nothing wrong with that phone call. He was impeached over that phone call President Trump was The second time based on nothing. I want everybody impeached over these phone calls, and I want transcripts. Remember the transcript of that phone call emerged. I want transcripts of all these phone calls. Um former now, Lieutenant. Colonel Alexander s. Penman has a Twitter account he tweeted yesterday. If this is true, General Milley must resign. He usurped civilian authority broke chain of command and violated the sacrosanct principle of civilian control over the military. It's an extremely dangerous precedent. You can't simply walk away from that pound sign. Do the right thing. The right way. Uh, And he was Retweeting. The Washington Post linked to their story. Uh, top general was so fearful that Trump might spark war with China. What? He was the most, uh, peacenik president we've had in generations. The least warlike president we've had in generations Sparkle. Where? With China China. What is that? Why? Because he pronounces it funny China. What is a Is that the because I'd like to see some evidence that you guys need to present that justifies your concern that he was going to launch nuclear weapons. Or attack China of all countries. Completely insane. Alexander Woman went on with McGill a gorilla last night, and apparently it was real nervous once he got there because he knows he's in a hotbed of Democrat Party activists. You know, Cuomo's disgraced, groping, sexually assaulting brother was just forced out of his job as governor and his father was the governor to here's Alexander of Inman with McGill a gorilla if the reporting is accurate, If if it's true, the senior most military officer in the United States Army or in the United States, military acted without any oversight. Without any accountability. I find that deeply troubling. It's doing the the what to me seems like the wrong thing for seemingly the right reason. There's not not a way to get away with that. There's not a way to walk away from that unscathed. See, this is the first time Vin man walked into a media interview where he wasn't being fluffed by the pretend journalists there because he was always attacking Trump in previous interviews. This time he's crossed the Democratic Party. The DNC will not let him get away with this. So he was rattled. He was feathers have been ruffled Winderman. What we can't have is we can't have the senior military officer acting without any oversight exceeding as authorities without civilian control. This is again a sacrosanct principle. What happens if in a different situation, the chairman of Joint Chiefs Act what he believes in his own best interest, and we find ourselves in Right in the slippery slope of where many other countries tonight themselves. Cuomo's squinting and looking at him funny like, why are you betraying the Democrat Party? Veneman. Oh, I'm sorry. I thought there were three. Uh oh, yeah, OK, Here's back to McGill, a gorilla like, Hey, you know what's what's a coup plotter to do? What was Millie's supposed to do if he does nothing, because, well, that's the president then. He is allowing things that he has a problem and he does nothing about them. If he does what he does here, you're afraid of encroaching, if afraid, were to resign and go public. Now he has no power to correct the problem. No, he could then bring it to the public and say, is concerned that the president is about to launch nuclear weapons on China. Instead of calling the Chinese General General Lee Ironically, once again, boy Oh, boy! Oh, boy. Oh, boy, boy, And this is our media. This is what we have. You know, we go to work with the media. We have not the media would like them Paraphrase the great Donald Rumsfeld. Justin Pawlak. Just appalling. You know what I'd like to get in here Is this uh, this the big lie? Because we have the audio yesterday. We didn't quite get to, um, Dana, I'm out of my depth. Milbank. Small hands. Smells of cabbage comes from Carney stock. In the Washington Post today. This is how a Republican lie is born. This is what happens when an entire political party takes leave of reality he types on Tuesday morning, one of the most senior and important Republican senators. Used one of the most important settings in official Washington to level one of the most serious allegations possible against the commander in chief, and his charge was based on an utter fabrication. Now this is something that happened in hearing yesterday and there is a Republican Senator Jim Risch of Idaho ranking Republican Senate Foreign Relations Committee. And they had the secretary of state up there yesterday, and Senator Risch asked the secretary of state that that that silly little man we have over there in the State Department. He said.
