Dems Call for Congress Approval of Any Further Syrian Action

By    |   Thursday, 06 April 2017 11:31 PM

Several Democrats called Thursday night for President Donald Trump to consult with Congress more closely in the wake of the U.S. airstrike on a Syrian airfield.

Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., noted "any longer-term or larger military operation in Syria by the Trump administration will need to be done in consultation with the Congress," Axios reported.

Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., lauded the Trump administration for acting "forcefully . . . against the Assad regime," but said he was "gravely concerned that the United States is engaging further militarily in Syria without a well-thought-out, comprehensive plan," per Axios.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., demanded "any further action will require close scrutiny by Congress."

In the House, Rep. Joaquin Castro, R-Texas, echoed that opinion: "I continue to believe that Congress must authorize any additional use of force against the Syrian government," per Axios.
