Sen. Ben Sasse: Only aggressor in Ukraine is ‘jackass’ Vladimir Putin

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska spoke his mind on the war in Ukraine on Thursday at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing.

“There are claims by (Russian President Vladimir) Putin that we did escalatory or aggressive things or are hypothesizing about aggressive things,” he said. “There’s only one aggressor here, and that’s the jackass who’s killing women and children.”

The Republican senator said the U.S. needs to do more to help Ukraine fight Russian forces.

And Sasse urged President Joe Biden to keep ratcheting up sanctions on the “mobster cronies who enable Putin’s madness.”
