We aren't getting the truth about the aborted meeting of US lawmakers. The first part was the Ukraine briefing - and it soon became apparent that they wouldn't allow hard and sensible questions, nor allow those questions to Zelensky - thus Schumer canning his appearance and blaming a fictious "technical glitch".

Reportedly many people were upset at the substance of the briefing and the non-answers they received. Frustration boiled over into anger at the next part of the briefing on US border security and several Republican stormed out - including moderates who have been outspoken supporters of aid to Kyiv. This includes Deb Fischer and Romney amongst others.

Certain quarters are trying to pretend it was all over border security but clearly the Ukraine part of the briefing set the stage and the cancelled appearance was to prevent embarrassment to Zelensky. Several moderate representatives unleashed their annoyance with the entire exercise to reporters.

$175 million is basically an insult to Zelensky, he's asking for $175 billion.

Zelensky abruptly cancelled a video conference with the US officials, offering no explanation.

The house of cards is crumbling.

Good, hold the line. It’s enough. No more.

I wouldn't celebrate a failure that will be attributed to your party for generations to come.

It was clearly the border security poison pills that are being loaded on. No need to write any other fan fiction about it.
