Pelosi in SF, calls Trump’s action on Syria ‘above the law’

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi accused President Trump of acting “above the law” Saturday, saying that he has not asked for needed congressional approval for military action in Syria.
After a weekend press conference about tax reform at the San Francisco Labor Council, Pelosi decried Trump’s use of escalating force against Syrian President Bashar Assad without the authorization of Congress. On Friday night, the United States — along with France and Britain — bombed the country over Assad’s suspected use of chemical weapons such as chlorine and sarin on citizens.
