I am deeply concerned that the White House has canceled an all-Member classified briefing on the dangerous situation the President has caused in Syria, denying the Congress its right to be informed as it makes decisions about our national security.— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) October 16, 2019

A week ago, our Kurdish partners were secure, ISIS was at bay, and hundreds of their fighters were detained.

Congress never voted to send troops to Syria, but in five minutes we will be voting on a resolution that disapproves of Trump removing them. We should have never gone to Syria. We should leave Syria. I’m voting no on this resolution.— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) October 16, 2019

"And that’s why we couldn't continue in the meeting, because he was just not relating to the reality of it."
Mr. President, Turkey’s offensive in Syria has a lot to do with us, since it was prompted by your decision to withdraw our troops.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) October 16, 2019
