[Ed. – So now the Democrats are taking sides with Iran? Wonderful.]
The House will vote on a resolution limiting President Trump’s military actions toward Iran following his decision to launch a drone strike that killed a top Iranian commander, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday.
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.
The resolution will be led by Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.), a former CIA and Department of Defense analyst specializing in Shia militias.
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) has introduced a similar legislation in the Senate.
Trump last week ordered the attack that killed Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Top members of Congress, including Pelosi, said they were not briefed until after the strike.
