WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell on Saturday said President Barack Obama had advised him that he would seek authorization for the use of force from Congress before any combat actions against Syria.

"The President's role as commander-in-chief is always strengthened when he enjoys the expressed support of the Congress," he said in a statement.
