Pa. senators head to White House for pre-holiday lunch with President Trump

Source: Penn Live

In the midst of making decisions about who to grant pardons to and pressuring Congress to provide more relief in a negotiated coronavirus relief package, President Donald Trump will take time out on Wednesday to have lunch with some Pennsylvania senators.

Four senators confirmed that Sen. Doug Mastriano invited fellow members of the Senate Republican Caucus to have lunch at the White House with the president.

Attempts to contact Mastriano on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning for comment were unsuccessful. The point of contact at the White House identified on the invitation, William Crozer, special assistant to the President and deputy director of White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, referred questions to the White House press staff who didnít immediately respond.

Aside from an opportunity to take in the ďAmerica the BeautifulĒ-themed holiday decorations at the White House, the senators said they had been given no clue as to the purpose of the gathering.

7. I think this is grifting lessons for those hitting their limits

They have to be the most overcompensated bunch in any legislature. Maybe they can learn how to vote themselves more raises and get new limos.

9. Probably. As there are too few to do anything
