      Q And then, broadly, can you say — you know, last week was when the administration began to, sort of, ratchet up warnings that an invasion could be imminent, it could happen at any time. This week, where — can you say how, if at all, the President’s view has changed about the risk? Is it the same? Is it getting worse? Is it getting (inaudible)?

      MS. PSAKI: I think when we said it was imminent, it remains imminent. But, again, we can’t make a prediction of what decision President Putin will make. We’re still engaged in diplomatic discussions and negotiations.

      Q So, there’s no new element in the last week that’s changed the President’s view one way or the other on (inaudible)?

      MS. PSAKI: Well, “imminent” has a pretty intense meaning. Doesn’t it?

      Q I agree. I agree.

      MS. PSAKI: Okay.

      Q And it’s still the belief that it’s imminent?

      MS. PSAKI: Correct.

      likened the ‘Russia to invade Ukraine’ hoax to  WMD’s in Iraq – repeated over and over and over ad nauseam ….until even peace / anti-war activists who didn’t want to see an Iraq invasion still believed that Saddam had WMD , etc.

      I see this as more theater to keep all of us afraid. Be very, very afraid. They can bite me.

      Her disdain for the working classes positively oozes from her. Kinda like it does from Skamala Harris.

      I cringe when I see her at the podium because every time she opens her mouth a lie comes out. And the reporter class continues to give her a pass.
