Judge Napolitano Says Trump Upheld Constitution With Decision To Withdraw Troops From Syria

Published

When President Trump announced the decision to pull troops from northern Syria he faced a lot of criticism from both Democrats and Republicans who felt he was abandoning the Kurds in the area, leaving them vulnerable to attack by Turkey and creating a path that could be used by ISIS to rebuild their group.

However, Fox News contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano says Trump did the right thing and upheld the Constitution with his decision.

Trending: WATCH: Biden Calls Military Members ‘Stupid B—’ During Overseas Speech As Vice President

Earlier this month, Trump decided that 1,000 U.S. troops would be pulled out of northern Syria. The move provided an opportunity for Turkish forces to launch a military assault on the Syrian Kurds in the region, whom the Turkish government considers to the terrorists.

“While it may not be a popular move from both sides of the aisle, with many Republicans and Democrats referring to it as a moral betrayal. The president, legally speaking, was on very solid ground when he pulled back U.S. forces from Syria, of all places,” explained Judge Nap on his show “Liberty Files with Judge Andrew Napolitano.”

“Why? Because Congress never authorized U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war in the first place,” he continued. “The war powers are clearly articulated in the plain language of the Constitution itself. Congress declares war. The president wages war. Sending American troops to Syria was never authorized by Congress and more so — it’s not even in the best national security interests of the United States.”

On Wednesday, President Trump announced the United States would be lifting sanctions imposed on Turkey that would eventually led to a cease fire agreement being reached.

Judge Napolitano went on to say that Congress should definitely act if they feel a military role is necessary.

“If Congress wanted American troops in Syria, it could declare war on the government there,” Napolitano said. “That would be immoral, unlawful and absurd. But it would at least make American troops’ presence constitutional.

“If the government wishes to remain in the conflict, then the legislative branch must repeal power that it has given away. The authorization for use of military force in 2001 and the authorization in 2002 and the War Powers Resolution, both of which have given past presidents and President Trump leeway to invoke interventions abroad, are profoundly unconstitutional and outdated and open-ended.”

WATCH: Biden Calls Military Members ‘Stupid B—’ During Overseas Speech As Vice President

And the MSM will remain silent.

It wasn’t that long ago when the mainstream media pushed a story accusing President Trump of denigrating US military members. The reports have been widely debunked, as one would expect. However, here’s actual footage of 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling them “stupid bastards.” And the MSM will remain silent. From The Daily Wire: A video emerged on Friday of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling soldiers “stupid bastards” and a “dull bunch” during a speech overseas to U.S. soldiers while he was serving as vice president in the Obama administration. WATCH: https://twitter.com/robbystarbuck/status/1309604720546373633?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1309604720546373633%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-video-emerges-of-joe-biden-calling-u-s-troops-stupid-bastards-during-speech-biden-campaign-responds Team Biden has put out a statement saying Joe was just joking. They must be tired of doing that by now. When Joe was in Germany he decided to bash America because apparently doing so on U.S. soil just isn’t enough. According to Biden, the United States is “an embarrassment.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1096974881801957376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1096974881801957376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fjoe-biden-goes-to-germany-trashes-america-as-an-embarrassment%2F

Pelosi: If GOP Moves Forward With SCOTUS Nomination ‘There Has To Be A Price To Pay’

And what would that be??

Nancy Pelosi doesn’t think Joe Biden should debate President Trump. She doesn’t give a legitimate reason why, but come on – we all know why. Joe isn’t all there. From Fox News: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday doubled down on her argument that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not debate President Trump, claiming the Republican incumbent and his “henchmen” have no “fidelity” to facts or the truth. Asked during an interview on “Morning on CBS” whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi said: “Oh, I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.” Here’s video of Pelosi claiming there “has to be a price to pay” if Republicans move forward with a SCOTUS nomination before the general election. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHx56Kxmea0&feature=emb_title Rush Limbaugh makes an excellent point about this upcoming SCOTUS pick. Congressional Republicans, take note. From The Hill: Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh urged Senate Republicans to skip the confirmation hearing process for President Trump’s soon-to-be announced Supreme Court nominee and head straight to a floor vote. “I want the Judiciary Committee — that could be great if it were skipped,” Limbaugh said Monday on his daily radio program. “We don’t need to open that up for whatever length of time, so that whoever this nominee is can be Kavanaugh’d, or Borked, or Thomas’d. Because that’s what it’s going to be, especially when it’s not even required.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/mmfa/status/1308100957390151683?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1308100957390151683%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fmedia%2F517408-rush-limbaugh-encourages-senate-to-skip-hearings-for-trumps-scotus-nominee H/T: Right Scoop
