Pelosi Pushes War Powers Resolution to Protect Iran

One of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) first order of business in the new year is to take steps for the House to vote on a resolution to hinder President Trump’s military actions against Iran.

Democrats are outraged with President Trump for not seeking Congressional approval with his order to kill Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in an airstrike last week.

The airstrike followed the pro-Iran demonstrator’s attack earlier last week on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq which caused damage to outer parts of the embassy compound.

Importantly, U.S. intelligence believed Soleimani traveled to Baghdad to initiate additional attacks against U.S. personnel in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East.

Speaker Pelosi sent a letter to Democrats to introduce a War Powers Resolution, saying the attack was a “provocative and disproportionate military airstrike targeting high-level Iranian military officials.”

The Hill reports:

Pelosi told Democratic members in a letter that the House will introduce a vote on a “War Powers Resolution” mandating that the administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran would cease within 30 days if no further congressional action is taken.

Speaker Pelosi and other Democrats criticized President Trump for not seeking Congressional approval.

Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal demanded “a full explanation.”

Commenting on the Trump administration and the airstrike, Blumenthal told CNN, “There’s no clear path here. No apparent strategy.”

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren suggested the president’s decision was driven by his interest in distracting Americans from impeachment.

Liberal activists also commented on the airstrike.

Not surprising, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick made the airstrike about racism against “Black and Brown bodies.”

Kaepernick took to social media to bash America calling the attack an act of “American imperialism” against “besieged Black and Brown” people worldwide.

However, former Homeland Security head Jeh Johnson, under former President Obama, supported President Trump’s decision.

From impeaching and seeking to remove President Trump from office to a War Powers Resolution, Pelosi and other Democrats continue to fight the president and his America First agenda.
