(Worthy News) - House Democrats Thursday passed a resolution to curb President Trump’s authority to use military force against Iran.
The measure is nonbinding and will not reach the president’s desk, but it sent a signal that Democrats lack confidence in Trump’s actions against Iran, specifically, his decision to kill Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani in a drone strike last week.
It passed mostly along party lines. Eight Democrats voted against it, while three Republicans and independent Justin Amash of Michigan, voted for the resolution. Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, is preparing a similar measure that could go to the Senate next week. Kaine’s measure would require Trump to terminate military actions against Iran within 30 days unless he obtains new authority from Congress. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
