Rep. Jim Himes and Republican challenger Harry Arora on Monday night presented two different views on how the United States should treat friends and foes around the world.
WASHINGTON – Sen. Chris Murphy on Tuesday introduced a resolution that would prevent the United States from launching a pre-emptive strike against North Korea, saying he was prompted to do so by the Trump administration’s increasingly belligerent tone toward Pyongyang.
“Military action would have to be considered in response to an attack,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal said in Hartford Thursday. “I’m not going to predict what that action should be, but every step should be used to convince the North Koreans that they face devastation and destruction.”
WASHINGTON – In a tweetstorm Wednesday, Sen. Chris Murphy blamed President Donald Trump for a dangerous and undiplomatic response to threats from North Korea. “Trump knew NKorea would be a problem. Yet he intentionally keeps vacant EVERY diplomatic position that is relevant to solving this crisis,” tweeted Murphy, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
WASHINGTON — Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy on Wednesday joined all of their Senate colleagues on a bus to the White House for a classified briefing on North Korea, but they and other senators from both parties said they left without learning much new.
WASHINGTON – Sen. Chris Murphy, who says the nomination is in trouble, on Wednesday questioned Rex Tillerson, Donald Trump’s pick to head the State Department, about a dossier of unverified allegations that Russian operatives have been helping the president-elect for years and have compromising information about him. “The report is as earth-shattering as it is thinly sourced,” Murphy said. “We all pray it is untrue.”
