Outrage when Schumer says senators will get classified Ukraine briefing NEXT WEEK after recess

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the Democratic Majority Leader, announced that senators returning from recess on February 28 will be receiving a classified briefing on the Ukraine/Russia situation, and that didn’t sit well with some people.

Despite the current state of emergency in which the world in general, and Ukraine specifically, finds itself, it looks like the congressional recess will last until the end of the month. Upon their return, Schumer says senators will receive a full, classified run-down on the situation.

That said, the senators reportedly received an unclassified briefing on the situation Thursday. However, there were some concerns, likely security-related, about doing a classified briefing remotely.

Social media response largely wondered why elected officials were waiting until the end of their recess to come back:

This announcement, however, does indicate a shift in urgent priorities as Schumer and his allies were slated to discuss the “Women’s Health Protection Act” as their first order of business right after returning from their break.
