Rep. Kinzinger Introduces AUMF to OK U.S. Troops in Ukraine If Russia Uses WMDs

HeadlineMay 02, 2022

Republican Congressmember Adam Kinzinger has introduced a joint resolution to give President Biden congressional authority to send U.S. troops to fight in Ukraine if Russia deployed chemical, biological or nuclear weapons. Kinzinger unveiled his plan during an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Rep. Adam Kinzinger: “I don’t think we need to be using force in Ukraine right now. I just introduced an AUMF, an authorization for the use of military force, giving the president basically congressional leverage or permission to use it if WMDs — nuclear, biological or chemical — are used in Ukraine.”
