Speaker Johnson Inviting Israel PM Netanyahu to Address House with or Without Senate Dems

The Washington Times 

House Speaker Mike Johnson is ready to invite embattled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress, and is tired of waiting for Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer to join in on his invitation.

Mr. Johnson, Louisiana Republican, has planned to invite Mr. Netanyahu to give an address to both chambers of Congress since March. For that to happen, Mr. Schumer must sign onto a joint invitation from the leaders of both chambers.

But Mr. Schumer, New York Democrat and the highest-ranking Jewish official in Congress, has so far not signed the invitation that the speaker sent to his office in April. Now, Mr. Johnson says, if he won’t sign, the House will host the Israeli leader on its own.
