Were Republicans Partisan Cowards or Not Invited?

A top-level U.S. congressional delegation led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi praised the “ferocity” and resolve of Ukrainians face to face with their leader in a weekend visit to Kyiv undertaken in extraordinary secrecy.
Though all in the delegation were Democrats, the U.S. Congress has displayed a rare and, so far, lasting bipartisan resolve to back Ukraine as it battles Russia.

I've not seen any mention as to why there were no Republicans on that trip. My guess is that they are all craven, cowardly Trumpers who were afraid of rousing the ire of The TOFF by being seen in public with Speaker Pelosi, especially on a trip that is in opposition to the TOFF's BFF in the Kremlin.

I've seen mention that when asked someone quipped "security risk."

After I posted that, I wondered if the concern was that they couldn't be trusted to maintain OPSEC.
