Senate Passes Resolution Limiting Trump's War Powers Authority

Trump urges senators not to pass Iran war resolution

Key Republican Lawmaker Pushes For No Retaliation Against Lt. Col. Vindman

It would still allow the president to order strikes in cases of self -defense against an imminent attack. "An offensive war requires a congressional debate and vote".

The Democratic majority in the House is expected to pass the measure next, after which it would go to Trump for his signature. We should take back the House, keep the Senate and four more years for President Trump.

"We don't send a message of weakness when we stand up for the rule of law", he said Wednesday.

"Some Republicans have said they hoped you would learn a lesson from impeachment", NBC News' Peter Alexander stated.

Morrison said, "Among the discussions I had with Dr. Hill in the transition [period] was our team, my team, its strengths and its weaknesses".

Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly accused Trump of reckless warmongering with the Islamic Republic and criticized as provocative his decision to launch a drone strike January 2 that killed Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad.

"Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, said that Vindman is blameless and was simply following the training he'd received as a soldier; migrants are "overwhelmingly good people" and "not all rapists"; and Trump's decision to condition military aid to Ukraine on an investigation into his political rival Joe Biden upended long-standing us policy", The Atlantic reported.

Besides Collins and Lee, Republicans joining Democrats were Sens.

Vindman's lawyer issued a written statement yesterday, which read in part, "The continued public attacks by the President of the United States on an active-duty officer in the military are created to intimidate and to punish".

But the resolution, she said, will show that "no president has the authority to commit our military to a sustained conflict". If we're to order our young men and women in uniform to risk their lives and health in war, it should be on the basis of careful deliberation. A bipartisan majority of senators don't want the president waging war without congressional approval.

Sen. Susan Collins (right), a Republican from ME, is a co-sponsor of the resolution that curbs President Trump's ability to go to war with Iran. "And so, when the president said that continued support would be based on 'X, ' that essentially changed". I think the world knows we will do that.

"This resolution does not constrain the USA government from acting in self-defense against Iranian provocation. I take that responsibility very seriously", he said.
