The 'Special Report' All-Star Panel discuss the rationale over the president's attack on Iranian militias
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said Friday she was concerned about the White House’s "legal rationale" for launching airstrikes in Syria a day earlier without congressional approval.
"We in Congress have congressional oversight in engaging in war and we haven’t been briefed yet and we have not authorized war in Syria," Omar told CNN.
Omar had retweeted a resurfaced 2017 post from now-White House press secretary Jen Psaki that had questioned the Trump administration’s "legal authority" for conducting airstrikes against the "sovereign" country at the time.
