I had heard something about this a couple days ago, but the details weren't clear and it was from a conspiracy site that I was far from sure about believing.They will keep trying till they get it.
Matt, I fully expect that the current resident of the White House will adopt the Treaty by executive order, and his willing minions won't care that it wasn't ratified as required by law.

wait.... what exactly does this mean? What does it mean for the "UN to pass it" if it's not gone to the Senate for approval?
