April 9, 2018

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Monday morning in response to the reported use of chemical weapons in Syria.

“The use of chemical weapons absolutely requires a response from the United States,” Sen. Lee said. "But if that response is going to include military force, the President of the United States should come to Congress and ask for authorization before military force is used."
