        Congress and the Department of State

        The Constitution authorizes Congress to oversee but not establish U.S. foreign policy, except by law and approval of war and treaties. In that capacity, Congressional committees question Department officials about matters of foreign policy, internal operations and other subjects as it sees fit. This video captures U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, asking U.S. Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford about reports of the use of chemical weapons.
