Sen Kennedy (R-La.) asked if there's anything more McConnell could be doing to end the shutdown: "Pray." He also dismissed the bipartisan idea of a short-term CR to end shutdown saying it will happen when "you look outside your window and see donkeys fly."

sources add that the WH would much rather be fighting in a public drama with Speaker Pelosi on SOTU than in engaging with moderate gripes about the shutdown. WH push is to hold line, blame Dems, carry on, despite mounting concerns about shutdown's fallout

A few tidbits from my sources close to POTUS... as with VP Pence, Kushner is playing a big role in taking temp of GOP on Hill as shutdown drags on... WH is trying to tamp down moderate rebellion but not seem heavyhanded about it... making clear to lawmakers that Trump won't budge

Sen. Cornyn, who’s up for reelection in 2020, tells the Post he won’t sign the bipartisan letter and doesn’t want to “kick it down the road,” in reference to border security discussions/deal... acknowledges that the draft is starting to circulate but only heard about it today

The view among several GOP senators this morn: WH’s planned meeting with House moderates today is part of WH effort to contain the moderate agitation on the Hill as the shutdown drags on. WH keeping close tabs on all cracks in the party, they say.

Was just briefed on emerging bipartisan Senate letter: it’s short and calls for govt to reopen, border security talks to continue in good faith... a couple senators this morn, however, say the WH doesn’t like this letter and have made it clear to a few of them, want to hold line

Sen. Alexander, a McConnell ally, tells me this morn that he plans to sign the letter being drafted by the bipartisan group, calling on POTUS to reopen the govt, and expects it could be released today. But he cautioned that senators, as ever, are still discussing the draft.
