After backlash, House progressives withdraw Ukraine letter
Thirty members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus publicized an open letter to the Biden administration on Monday, urging direct talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin to end the war in Ukraine. On Tuesday, the signatories retracted the letter. The Eurasia Group Institute for Global Affairs’ Mark Hannah talks with The World’s Marco Werman about why the letter caused such an uproar.
