For a guy who lied about his military service, Richard Blumenthal is sounding mighty bellicose this morning.

Appearing on Morning Joe today, the Dem senator from Connecticut said:

We are facing a continuing act of war by Vladimir Putin. He has tried to divide us, cause disarray, and he will stop at nothing to destroy these Western democracies.”

An “act of war” is an act that constitutes a casus belli: justification for a declaration of war by the offended nation.

Is that really what Blumenthal has in mind? Would he vote for a declaration of war against Russia? Or is this just moral preening intended to undermine President Trump as he enters the summit with Putin?
