Even when Democrats attended their caucus meeting with Biden over changing Senate rules to reform federal elections, a response to state laws backed by the GOP and designed to restrict access to ballots, many of them did not know they had already lost. A few minutes before the group’s meeting with Biden, [Kyrsten Sinema] slammed the door to weaken the filibuster during a Senate speech by Biden.

“People were just surprised when we went there. Because no one knew she was on the floor speaking ‘to defend the filibuster,’ said a Democratic senator who missed Sinema’s remarks. “There were probably 20 people inside who didn’t even know she said something.”

Biden had prepared remarks for the meeting but instead chose to speak out of the blue, recalling he was late Senator Strom Thurmond (RS.C.) to support the Voting Rights Act while they were both in Congress and arguing that a majority of Republicans today would not be supporting this historic bill. Biden told senators he can’t remember a time in US history when a party was as fascinated by a person as the GOP is by the former president. Donald trump.
