US Congressman and a former Californian State Senator Ted Liu, said the Congress did not authorize the US President Donald Trump to use the military force against Syrian President Bashar Al Assad, his army or the Syrian state.

On his Twitter account, Liu also wrote that any type of use of force against Syria, in particular case, is unconstitutional, asserting that Trump did not get an approval from Congress to strike Syria, thus meaning that any use of force against the country is not legal.

On Monday, the White House issued a public statement, accusing the Syrian authorities that they are preparing another attack with chemical weapons somewhere in Syria in the nearby future, threatening that Damascus would “pay a heavy price”, should it ever resort to use that kind of force. 

“The United States sees a possibility of another attack with chemical weapons by the Assad regime, which could lead to a mass killing of the civilian population, including innocent children. The processes observed are similar to those that took place before the chemical attack on the 4th of April 2017”, the statement reads.

The US administration, however, refuses to give any evidence or details for the claims of the alleged “preparations”.

The claims have since been dismissed by both, Syria and Russia as a type of complete blackmail and justification of yet another US aggression against Syria.
