See below for video of Sen. Tim Kaine, speaking late this afternoon on MSNBC, and saying:

  • “I don’t think Putin can be shamed, but I think it might be possible to shame the Russian citizenry and populace, having a war-crime-committing president, being a pariah nation because of these war crimes.”
  • The atrocities Russian troops committed at Bucha and the train station meet the “classic definition of war crimes,” while talking about how supposedly “Ukrainians aren’t a real people” – “that starts to get into the genocide territory.”
  • “I am confident that we will prepare strongly to defend our elections in November...Watch the French elections…you will likely see Russia try to interfere with those elections to try to defeat President Macron...Putin and the Russians would likely look at [Le Pen] as a far preferable choice to President Macron, who has tried to stand up against Russian aggression and be a bit of a peacemaker…expect they’ll try to do the same thing in the U.S. [in the November U.S. elections], likely opposing Democrats, frankly…anybody who is on Joe Biden’s team…We’ve got congressional Republicans – not all, but some – who are still carrying Vladimir Putin’s water for him…so we need to be very very diligent.”
  • On Ketanji Brown Jackson, Sen. Kaine said he feels “better about the Senate, even though the process was tough and even though she was put under ridiculous cross examination by people trying to make a name for themselves, in a way that was kind of gross; she stood strong, showed the entire American public her character and credentials.”
