In a series of tweets within an hour of Pelosi’s tweet, Graham confirmed the announcement, writing that he will be “working across party lines in a bicameral fashion to draft sanctions and move quickly, appreciating President Trump’s willingness to work with the Congress.”

“The Speaker indicated to me that time was of the essence,” Graham added.

The announcement comes as a growing chorus of Republicans are joining Democrats in condemning Trump’s decision to withdraw a contingent of US troops from northeast Syria, green lighting Turkey’s invasion of the region.

For those seeking to tackle climate change and get a fast food fix, Burger King has the answer -- a Whopper from cows that fart and burp less.
