U.S. Sen. Todd Young, R-Ind., is calling on the Chair and Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to hold a hearing with key administration officials regarding use of military force in Venezuela.

“Senator Young has long been outspoken on the need for updated Authorizations for Use of Military Force (AUMF) and Congressional approval of military activity,” according to a statement released on Saturday.

“The brutal Maduro regime has caused unspeakable suffering amongst the citizens in Venezuela and I commend the brave Venezuelans who are standing up for their freedom and for their basic human rights,” Young said. “However, I am concerned by reports of possible U.S. military intervention in Venezuela. Given recent developments, I am calling on the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to hold immediate hearings with key members of the administration next week to discuss their plans for Venezuela and to explain any plans to deploy U.S. forces to the country.”
