Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) took to social media on Monday to warn that the $95 billion foreign aid bill that would go on to pass in the Senate early Tuesday “tries to make it ILLEGAL for Trump to do what he is promising on the campaign trail.”
“It is a plot against President Trump, plain and simple,” Vance tweeted. “Buried in the bill’s text is an impeachment time bomb for the next Trump presidency if he tries to stop funding the war in Ukraine.”
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) echoed concerns about “the next hyper-partisan Trump impeachment” in a tweet that caught the attention of Elon Musk, who would call out Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
The billionaire tech mogul tagged McConnell while asking, “What’s going on?”

To no surprise, McConnell was not persuaded by these concerns as he led a group of 22 Republicans who voted with Democrats to pass the foreign aid bill that steers $60 billion to Ukraine in furtherance of its war with Russia — even reliable war hawk Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) opposed the bill that punted on protecting the U.S. border with Mexico to play policeman to the world.
The GOP list is a who’s who among liberal Republicans in Congress:
BREAKING: The senate just pulled an all nighter and officially passed their $95B foreign aid bill for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan with nothing for the southern border
The final vote was 70-29 with 22 Republicans voting yes.
McConnell, Thune, Boozman, Capito, Cassidy, Collins,…

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) summoned up all his moral indignation to champion the bill as “the most important vote we will ever take as United States senators.”
Rob O’Neill, the former Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden, summed it all up well: “Historically, senators were chosen by their state legislators to represent that state. Now they vote to send your money to a non-NATO country so they can enrich themselves and their friends. Our southern border is still wide open. This should concern you but TikTok is so fun…”

The funding bill is expected to have a tougher time being passed in the GOP-controlled House of Representatives, but then anything is possible these days in DC.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on X:
Welcome, Cocaine Mitch has been bending over Americans for decades

What’s going on is the establishment is already setting up a framework to obstruct President Trump once he’s sworn in on January 20, 2025.
They know Democrats can’t win so they’re now resorting to cheating for after Trump wins.
It’s disgraceful and it’s treason.

What’s going on is that @LeaderMcConnell is a RINO sellout that is more concerned with protecting the borders of a nation that openly allows Nazis in it’s military than our own. @RandPaul and @JDVance1 are the only two from the #GOP in the Senate that have spoken out on this.…
