Press Release

Washington, DC – Last night, Congressmen Steve Russell (R-OK) and Seth Moulton (D-MA) issued a joint statement in response to President Donald Trump's military airstrike against Syria. Russell and Moulton serve as chairmen of the Warrior Caucus, a bipartisan group of combat veterans committed to rising above partisan politics to address national security issues.

Their joint statement: “We cannot stand by in silence as dictators murder children with chemical weapons. But military action without clear goals and objective gets us nowhere. We look forward to hearing the President present a plan for Syria to the American people, for Congress to agree on bipartisan action, and for America to partner with the world community to help bring this treacherous conflict to an end.”
