We’ve culled enough evidence from today’s Pool Report by Politico‘s Carrie Budoff Brown, who remarks toward the top, “No huge news, but a few developments on debt talks.” And “few” is the operative word here.
- Is there any specific progress to report? “None that I’m prepared to read out. … I’m just not giving any more details. We’re not going to give detailed readouts of these meetings. That’s the most I’m going to say about it.”
- Any more meetings scheduled? “I can say he is having a meeting tomorrow with Senate Democratic leaders at the white house. It was actually a meeting scheduled last week for this week. He will have one tomorrow.”
- Now that Biden talks collapsed, what is the structure for proceeding? “I don’t have a structure to provide to you. I don’t think I would agree that the Biden talks collapses. The Biden talks made significant progress.”
- Any meetings scheduled with Republicans? “I don’t have any other meetings to announce today.”
