Duckworth Urges Colleagues to Demand Congressional Authorization in North Korea

Senator Tammy Duckworth is joining a number of colleagues, including Senators Elizabeth Warren, Chris Murphy, Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders, in demanding Congressional authorization before President Trump could launch a potential preemptive strike against North Korea. Duckworth says it's clearly a high stakes confrontation and would require a lot more than taking out missile sites.

Duckworth says the legislation is inspired by what she and colleagues call an escalation of irresponsible and reckless rhetoric against North Korea from President Trump.

Senator Chris Murphy said "It's important we join forces to reclaim Congress' constitutional role in matters of war and peace before there's no turning back".
