House Poised For Historic Vote On Iran

Via The Washington Examiner:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House will vote on a war powers resolution this week aimed at blocking the Trump administration from ordering new military action against Iran.

Pelosi, a California Democrat, told party lawmakers in a memo late Sunday that the House “will introduce and vote on a War Powers Resolution to limit the President’s military actions regarding Iran.” The resolution mirrors a measure Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, introduced in the Senate.

Democrats have been critical of Trump’s decision to authorize a drone strike that killed Iran military leader Qassem Soleimani, head of the Quds Force and a terrorist who is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American service personnel.

The Trump administration has since deployed 3,500 additional troops in preparation for a potential escalation of aggression in the region.
