Ukraine President Zelensky Addresses Congress

Mar 18, 2022

Congressman Jim McGovern tells us what it was like to be in the room as Ukraine President Zelensky spoke to Congress. He also talks about the aid we are giving Ukraine. He says each step such as a No-Fly Zone or sending MiG’s to Ukraine needs to be looked at, and you have to think about what comes next. Enforcing a No Fly Zone means U.S. and NATO forces would directly engage with Russian fighters and the President would need to come to Congress for a vote due to the War Powers Resolution. McGovern said due to the bravery of the Ukrainian people, you see internal pressure within Russia that could lead to an unhinged Putin having to end this.

Congressman McGovern was first elected to the House in 1996.  He is the chair of the rules committee and was the last person to leave the house chamber on January 6th, 2021.  As he left the chamber he was within ten feet of the mob.  Close enough to make eye contact with those who wanted to harm him.
