Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) got into a heated exchange on the Senate floor as Cotton bashed Democrats for being weak on dealing with Russia:
COTTON: The simplest way to deter an invasion of Ukraine, the simplest way to deter Russian aggression is to draw clear red lines and enforce them — something that Joe Biden will not do, something that apparently the Democratic senators will not force him to do.
SHAHEEN: I just have to take real umbrage at your suggestion, Senator Cotton. I’m the one who Vladimir Putin refused a visa to get into Russia. Because of my opposition to Russia and to what Putin was doing. He didn’t deny you a visa to get into the country! So don’t talk to me about how I’ve not been tough enough on Russia, because that dog won’t hunt.Save to Favorites
