Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Democrats were engaging in “acrobatic contortions” on the government shutdown and border security. He later talked about Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s privileged resolution disapproving of the Treasury Department lifting sanctions on three Russian companies. He noted Democrats said they were blocking legislation on military aid to Israel and sanctions on Syria because they only wanted the Senate to take up legislation to re-open the government.
