Today on WonkTV!

Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines and Defense Intelligence Agency chief Scott Berrier are testifying in the Senate Armed Services Committee this morning on worldwide threats. These are always interesting, and we imagine especially so with Russia's evil war in Ukraine ongoing.

It started a few minutes ago, but you can join it in progress right here:

Russian TV Loves It When Tucker Washes Blood Off Putin's Hands

Why wouldn't they?

Much of America's focus this week has understandably shifted to the stolen, illegitimate, and lying conservative majority on the Supreme Court and its brazen attack on abortion, bodily autonomy, and the privacy rights of anyone who isn't a white supremacist Christian man. But the rest of the world is still on fire, Russia's genocidal war against Ukraine continues, and Vladimir Putin's enthusiastic fluffers in American media are still clocked in for duty.

Julia Davis reports that a Tucker clip from earlier this week is just the star of Russian state-run media right now, as his clips so often are:


Wow.

The broadcast in question happened Monday night, just minutes before Samuel Alito's dirty dark forced birth masturbation fantasy leaked.

Let's see how much blood Tucker can lick off Putin's hands and spit back at America.

Which Country Will Putin's Republicans Vote To Give Him Next?

God it's just so appalling.

Lately it seems like if it is a day in the Congress, Democratic leadership is giving Republicans as many chances as possible to affirm that they're on the side of goodness and freedom and not Vladimir Putin.

And a lot of Republicans are going along with it! Congratulations, a lot of Republicans!

Right now, there is some weird shit happening in Transnistria, a region of Moldova. Moldova is a sovereign nation that shares borders with Ukraine, Romania, and Not Even A Little Bit Russia. And look, Transnistria is weird. It's a tiny breakaway region. According to that last link, Moldovans make fun of it for being totally backward. But there are worries Russia is looking to expand its murderous game of grabass with sovereign nations into Moldova. There have been explosions in Transnistria. Nobody's really sure what's up. Sounds like Russia might be trying to do some false-flagging, blaming Ukraine for attacking poor Transnistria.

So this week, the House held a pretty simple vote, "[e]xpressing support for Moldova's democracy, independence, and territorial integrity and strengthening United States and Moldova relations." Literally, you could put any free country in there, except for how Moldova is the one some are worried Putin is training his beady little eyes and his overfilled cheeks toward right now. Just hey, here's a resolution saying we like your democracy and we like you and let's be friends.

Seventeen Republicans voted against that.

LIVE: Biden With The Ukraine Update

Today on WonkTV!

Lots going on with Russia's stupid and vicious war against Ukraine. What will President Joe Biden say about it when he speaks this morning?

We don't know, but here are a few Russia/Ukraine links for you to gander at in the meantime:

  • Axios is reporting that the White House will sell assets of Russian oligarch garbage to fund aid for Ukraine.
  • Biden is demanding a whole bunch more Ukraine aid from Congress, but it's going to get weird when it gets to Capitol Hill because some lawmakers want to package it with COVID aid.
  • Oh yeah, you hear Russia cut off natural gas exports to Bulgaria and Poland because they refused to pay in rubles and those countries are pretty much like PFFFFFFFFT? "We will not succumb to such a racket," said the prime minister of Bulgaria. Rachel Maddow said last night she thinks that, with this development, the jig pretty much is up on Russian energy going into the future, and Europe will look elsewhere.

Biden might talk about all those things and more!
