Sen. Rand Paul spoke with Judge Jeannine Pirro Saturday night and continued to criticize President Trump’s decision to strike a Syrian airfield. He maintains that the strike was not constitutional and will only lead to more destruction.
“We just spent a lengthy week approving Justice Gorsuch, and what many conservatives like about him is that he adheres to the law,” Paul told Pirro. “He’s an originalist. I’m the same way as a legislator. I think we should look to our Founding Fathers and to the opening debates of our country.
They said that the power to declare war or to initiate war resided in the legislature. Specifically, the did not give it to the executive. It was a big debate, and they were explicit: War would be declared by Congress. So, when we go to war, that’s the way it should be.”
