Description

On Wednesday, August 27, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) spoke with Jim Sciutto on CNN's OutFront about the threat from ISIS to the homeland, and whether the President should seek Congressional authorization. Schiff said:If the President is "talking about a sustained air campaign in Syria with the general objective of setting back ISIS or defeating ISIS, then he really does need to come to Congress for an authorization." Schiff also stated about the threat on the homeland: "There is a near-term threat, but the broader threat is going to be in the mid and long-term. When these hundreds and thousands of European fighters come back or try to come back home, trying to keep track of those that mean us harm is a monumental challenge."
