Trump warns Senate not to approve war powers resolution on Iran
13 February, 2020, 13:26
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) has opposed the resolution, arguing it "would severely limit the U.S. military's operational flexibility to defend itself against threats posed by Iran".
The resolution was proposed in the aftermath of Trump's decision to launch an airstrike last month that resulted in the death of Qasem Soleimani, leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. Like impeachment, this War Powers Resolution cuts short that interplay between the branches, it short circuits the deliberation and debate.
"We should not be at war with Iran unless Congress votes to authorize such a war", Sen. I think it's an unconstitutional intrusion on the ability of any commander in chief to defend the nation, the South Carolina Republican said on the floor.
Last month, Trump broke from a White House warning and signaled he would not retaliate against House Republicans who voted for Pelosi's resolution, which aimed to repeal the 2002 Authorization of Military Force that authorized the Bush administration's war in Iraq - which the Trump administration used to justify its strike on Soleimani. "Tim Kaine's War Powers Resolution", said the group, "both chambers will have taken a stand for peace and for their constitutional authority".
"It is very important for our Country's SECURITY that the United States Senate not vote for the Iran War Powers Resolution", Trump said on Twitter as the Senate debated the measure.
But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is critical of the resolution.
All Democrats present plus eight Republicans voted 51-45 in favor of beginning debate on the resolution from Sen.
Republican Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee said the briefing on Trump's engagement with Iran following the drone attack on Soleimani was among the worst they had been given during their time in the U.S. Senate. "Let's defeat this misguided resolution". The prospect of military action against Iran has consequences that ought to be considered by the full Congress on behalf of the people it represents.
The resolution underscores that Congress has the sole power to declare war, as laid out in the Constitution.
The Senate is scheduled to hold a full vote on the measure this Thursday, but appears to lack the two-thirds majority needed to override an expected veto by the president.
"I've had a long-standing opposition to the War Powers Act".
The White House said Trump would veto both of the House-passed measures if they also are approved by the Republican-majority Senate.
