John McCain, Joe Lieberman and Jon Kyl were scheduled to travel to Munich, Germany for a conference on foreign affairs over the weekend, said the aide. After the Huffington Post reported the travel plans, aides to Lieberman and McCain dismissed the aide's contention, calling the report "erroneous" and "false." The lawmakers, they said, would remain in town for the vote. Our senior Democratic source insists the men had made clear their intention to attend the conference. Marshall Wittmann, a Lieberman aide, says emphatically that the contention that the Senators would have missed the vote is false.
