Alaska senator says she's likely to back Trump disapproval

JUNEAU, Alaska -- U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski said she is likely to support a resolution of disapproval over President Donald Trump's declaration of a national emergency to secure more money for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

In an audio recording provided by an aide late Friday, Murkowski, an Alaska Republican, noted concerns she has raised about the precedent that could be set if the declaration stands.

House Democrats introduced a resolution Friday to block the national emergency declaration. If it passes the Democratic-controlled House, it would go to the Republican-held Senate. Trump on Friday promised a veto.

"I want to make sure that the resolution of disapproval is exactly what I think it is, because if it is as I understand it to be, I will likely be supporting the resolution to disapprove of the action," Murkowski said.

1. Lucy van Pelt of the US Senate.

She's getting ready to yank away the football again, as is Susan Collins, when push comes to shove.

2. Lisa is an unusual Republican.

She has ethics. (Interior Alaska is where I am.)
