Time To Get The Veto Pen! Senate Passes Resolution To Strip Trump Of Military Powers Against Iran

The Senate has passed a resolution blocking Trump from using military force against Iran without Congressional approval:

WSJ – The Senate passed a resolution blocking President Trump from using military force against Iran without congressional authorization, in the latest bipartisan effort on Capitol Hill to rein in presidential war-making powers.

The resolution passed the GOP-controlled Senate, despite opposition from Mr. Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The Democratic-controlled House has indicated it will take up the resolution, which doesn’t prevent the U.S. from responding in the event of an attack.

It was passed 55-45, which means eight Republicans sided with Democrats:

Mike Lee, Rand Paul….of course.

Trump has asked the Senate not to approve this yesterday, saying it would show weakness if they did…

After it passes the House, which you know it will, all signs point to Trump issuing a veto when this finally hits his desk. And then it will be dead.
