Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge has asked CBC members to not speak publically about a potential military strike in Syria.

Emanual Cleaver said he was leaning toward a no vote and California Rep. Barbara Lee said she wasn't persuaded by Obama officials in a conference call that a military intervention is the only option.
