Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) mistakenly claimed on Sunday that Russia has amassed troops on the U.S. border instead of the Ukrainian border.
Cotton made the remark during an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo.
"That's what Vladimir Putin has always wanted," Cotton said. "So why is it that now he has put 100,000 troops on our border?"
"And there," he added, "I think President Biden bears a lot of the blame."
Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin has dubbed Cotton as the "Senate’s biggest hypocrite on Russia" because he refused to criticize then-President Donald Trump's relationship with Putin.

Appearing on "Face the Nation" on Sunday morning, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) was asked by host Margaret Brennan if his committee was going to speak with former Attorney General Bill Barr about a proposed plan from Donald Trump's administration to seize voting machines in swing states with the help of the military.
According to Thompson, the former AG has already been helping with the investigation.
"We've had conversations with the former attorney general already. We have talked to Department of Defense individuals," Thompson admitted. "We are concerned that our military was part of this big lie on promoting that the election was false. So, if you are using the military to potentially seize voting machines, even though it's a discussion, the public needs to know. We've never had that before."

During an interview on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, Donald Trump's niece said her uncle has put his daughter in an impossible position now that she has been asked to testify before the Jan 6th House committee.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Mary Trump suggested Ivanka Trump has intimate knowledge of what was happening at the White House on the day of the insurrection and likely fears what would happen to her if she told the truth.
"I think what's probably happening with my cousins and Donald is they're trying to make the calculation of what is in their best interests," Mary Trump began. "Donald isn't playing the card that she's his child to protect her. He's doing that to protect himself because he knows she may, indeed, have potentially damning information."
"She's making the same calculation; what will help her in the long run because she must understand that, as a government employee, as somebody who is at least involved by association, someone who was there that day and wasn't taking any direct action to stop what was going on, at least not publicly, she knows she has to come down on the right side of things or she'll continue to stay her father's ally and have to see how that plays out," she added. "She's in a very bad situation because she must understand that, if Donald feels it's necessary, he will stop protecting her."
