Administration to give 'top secret' briefing on Syria amid pushback
By Jordain Carney - 10/08/19 02:14 PM EDT

The Trump administration is briefing congressional staff on Tuesday regarding the announced pull back of U.S. troops in northern Syria, two sources told The Hill.

A congressional source confirmed that Senate staff will get a "top-secret level" briefing about the situation in northeast Syria. Katie Wheelbarger, acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for international security affairs, will take the lead on briefing staffers.

A Democratic aide added that House staff will be briefed separately on Tuesday.

The back-to-back briefings come as President Trump is facing fierce backlash on Capitol Hill over his decision to pull U.S. troops from northern Syria ahead of an expected military operation by Turkey.
