freedom. president joe biden is already announced a new $33000000000.00 aid package. senate leader chuck schumer said they're going after russian president vladimir putin friends and allies in the legislation of the $33.00. ready 1000000000, i will be adding provisions that allow us to go after the oligarchs take their money and send it right to your brain. this is the kind of stuff we're talking about. yachts, mansions, at the moment, us can seize assets and fries them. new legislation would make it easier to seize and sell. funneling the money back to ukraine is a tactic used against organized crime in the us. the senate could stop moves on the new package this week. the house is on a break, but could push through any legislation quickly with the support from both parties. joe biden could have a built assign within 2 weeks. i will, fisher, i'll just either washington. let's spend on the issues of seizures. joining me, i live from washington dc. it's not the clinic is
