JONES INTRODUCES RESOLUTION TO DECLARE THE USE OF MILITARY FORCE IN SYRIA WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE

 

 

 

” “We cannot continue to spend American money and risk American lives overseas without a vote of approval from Congress,” said Jones.  “For too long, the legislature’s responsibility to authorize military force has been overlooked.  It is time that we uphold the Constitution, which makes it clear in Article 1, Section 8 that Congress alone holds the power to declare war.  A breach of that principle by the president would unquestionably be considered an impeachable offense.” “
