He. Cannot. Criticize. Russia. He just cannot. Why? Not even on the poisoning of the Russian opposition leader. He just won’t do it. He changes the subject.

Dems seem to have outplayed GOP on the Covid delay. After the all-night reading, @ChrisVanHollen  simply got up, proposed shortening the debate from 20 hours to 3 and no Republican including @RonJohnsonWI  was around to contest. In the end, the dramatic Bill reading delayed nothing
