House Republicans set sights on Ukraine and Israel aid following Iran missile attack

Iran’s Sat­ur­day mis­sile attack on Israel has reignit­ed urgency for House GOP lead­ers to con­sid­er for­eign aid to Ukraine and the Jew­ish State, with Repub­li­cans antic­i­pat­ing a vote on an aid pack­age this week.
House Intel­li­gence Com­mit­tee Chair­man Mike Turn­er (R‑OH) said in a Sun­day inter­view with NBC News’s Meet the Press that he believes a vote on Ukraine aid will come to the House floor this week, and he expects it to pass.
“Every­one has been very much on this side of under­stand­ing that we’re at a crit­i­cal point. Rus­sia is begin­ning to gain ground, Ukraine is begin­ning to lose the abil­i­ty to defend itself,” Turn­er said. “The Unit­ed States must step up and pro­vide Ukraine the weapons that they need, and I think we’re gonna see over­whelm­ing sup­port for that in the House this week.”
