Trump Launches Airstrike on Syria Without Congressional Approval, Members of Congress React

The attacks came without a declaration of war or any other form of authorization from Congress. California Democratic Congressmember Barbara Lee tweeted, "This is an act of war. Congress needs to come back into session & hold a debate. Anything less is an abdication of our responsibility." And Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky tweeted, "The President needs Congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution."
