    Wasn’t it AIPAC that convinced him, now that there is a more credible threat on Israel?

    The aid package is tied to both Ukraine and Israel. Something must have happened that he is not sucking Putin/Trumps dick anymore.

      They passed separate aid packages for Ukraine and Israel. They could have done all the aid packages in one lump, but House Republicans voted it down on Trump’s orders.

      The speculation is that with Trump’s criminal trial in session in New York, he doesn’t have the capacity to micromanage Republicans on the Hill. So this was Magic Mike’s first opportunity to pass the bill unobstructed, even if it required Democrats to assist.
