Pelosi Statement on Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria

Washington, D.C. — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after dozens were killed and hundreds wounded in an apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria:

“The use of chemical weapons on civilians is a war crime that violates every standard of morality and civilized behavior.

“While President Trump cozies up to Assad and the Russians, children and civilians have once again been gassed in Syria.  The horrifying scenes from the apparent gas attack in Syria tear at the heart of every person of conscience.  The agony of parents and children, shaking from one of the most insidious weapons ever devised, cries out for justice.

“Members of Congress expect a comprehensive intelligence briefing on this outrageous atrocity as soon as possible.”
