It seem that some of the GOP and Trump support the Russian attack on Ukraine. I guess I wonder if the GOP takes control of the House and the Senate in 2022, will they take action to stop the USA from supporting Ukraine and perhaps the Balkan state,s that have joined NATO, against any Russian aggression?

Currently the Right is divided on Russia. Some of them want us to do more against Russia, others want us to do nothing at all, not even sanctions.

One thing's for sure, if the Repubs take either house of Congress, get ready for a huge clown show. 🤡

I'll make it simple, obvious & undeniable
😊👍Under Trump = no invasion!
😥Under Obama = Putin invaded!
😥Under Biden = Putin invaded!

Gee, it's almost as if all the leftist elites and democrats are trying to cover for Biden's catastrophic foreign policy blunders, by using the old "orange man bad" projection!

If memory serves, Romney was the only GOP Senator who felt holding up military aid to Ukraine as part of an extortion plot was problematic.
Pretty much this. The GOP only cares about backing Trump / avoiding shows of disloyalty to Trump. Little else matters. Therefore if he says support Ukraine, they’ll support Ukraine. If he says he prefers Russia, they’ll fall in line. If he avoids the subject then they’ll stick with his current messaging that Ukraine is corrupt and Russia is a great nation led by a brilliant leader.

Yes, we're aware right wingers like to oversimplify things.

The GOP will be too busy spending billions of taxpayer money on investigating every Democrat they can think of. They won’t have time for any actual policy.

The Ukrainians got their aid during the Trump admin, and it didn't even get there late! The only one who provably tried to hold up a billion dollars in aid to Ukraine in a blackmail scheme(and bragged about doing it on video), was Joe Biden!

Here it is again:

This may be true about America but it is not true about the GOP. The GOP stands not with America but with Trump, and Trump stands for whatever he saw on Fox two hours ago.

You seem to forget that Trump tried to use the aide to get them to get dirt on Biden. THe congress had to finally force himm to send the aide.

This is truth. Repubs investigate so much that they end up investigating their own investigations...like Muller's.

Well let's see. Based on results, Obama sent blankets and Trump sent Javelins.
So, I'm going to say no.

Biden will veto anything along those lines. They won't have a veto proof vote. Now in 2025, that could be a different discussion. We hope not.

I wonder what affect Russian sanctions will have on their political contributions.

Soooooo...what happened? Did Trump only send two Javelins? Looks like those Javelins weren't much of a deterrent, were they.

No. We see bi-partisan support for Ukraine right now. Nothing will change by next year, other than the conflict itself, of course.

This could be a defining moment. The divide in the GOP widens with this war.
