Jon Ossoff Urges Trump Administration to Seek Congressional Approval for Further Syria Action

Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff urges the Trump administration to seek congressional approval for any further military intervention in Syria.

Ossoff issued a statement on the Syria strikes saying, “If intelligence confirms that Assad’s forces attacked civilians with chemical weapons, a swift punitive strike on Syrian military targets is reasonable.”

“The more than fifth cruise missiles reportedly launched suggests a significant strike, and any further action should require congressional approval.”

“Other than the deployment of U.S. Special Operations Forces to support coalition operations against ISIS, I urge the administration to avoid getting drawn into an intractable ground war that cannot be resolved by U.S. military forces,” Ossoff continued.
