Description

On Friday, September 26, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), a senior Member of the Intelligence Committee, in an interview with Kristen Welker on MSNBC’s The Daily Rundown said that it was “staggering” that Speaker John Boehner would not bring up an authorization in the lame duck session. Schiff stated: “It’s staggering…. I think that's a terrible abdication of our responsibility. And it will affect not only this war effort, because if we can't through the Congress make sure the American public is on board, it'll affect this war effort, but it will also send a signal to future administrations that they can go to war without the Congress. And that is I think an incredibly dangerous precedent to set.”
