Biden asks congressional leaders to White House

President Joe Biden has invited congressional leaders to the White House for a meeting on Wednesday to discuss ongoing negotiations over a national security spending bill to aid Ukraine and other priorities, according to three people familiar with the request.

Senate negotiators have spent months discussing a potential bipartisan agreement to add new border and immigration policy restrictions to Biden’s supplemental request for $100 billion for Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan and border security. Those negotiations have yet to produce a deal.

Among those expected to attend are Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Speaker Mike Johnson and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.).

Punchbowl News was first to report the invitation.
