U.S. Sen. Jack Reed, D-RI, and two Democratic U.S. Senate colleagues are urging President Donald Trump to make a “clear and compelling case” before undertaking any major military action in Syria.

In a letter to the president, Reed and Sens. Dick Durbin, D-IL and Bob Menendez, D-NJ, said the president should provide a “legal basis for any potential or anticipated military action in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime in Douma on April 7th.”
