US Senate Passes Iran War Powers Resolution Limiting Trump's Executive Authority

Trump urges senators not to pass Iran war resolution

Neither Trump's murder last month of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani-an act of war against Iran-nor his misappropriation of money for the border wall played any role in the Democrats' impeachment, which centered on their claim that Trump betrayed United States national security by delaying military aid to Ukraine in what they called a "hot war" with Russian Federation.

Trump said on February 13 that sometimes there are 25 people listening in on his calls, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "I really don't rule anything out", Manchin said in a recent interview with Politico. So, the idea that the commander in chief intervened there in my opinion, was exactly the wrong thing to do.

Trump and the Justice Department say there was no communication. ". I saw some of the comments that he made and I was in the room with him when he actually backed the president on numerous things that he is now saying is weren't great".

"Fake News @CNN & MSDNC keep talking about "Lt. Col.' Vindman as though I should think only how wonderful he was", Trump tweeted February 7". President Trump has frequently sought to cast undocumented immigrants as violent criminals, and he began his candidacy for president in 2015 by declaring Mexico was sending "rapists" and drug dealers to the US. "At the end of the day, the president is entitled to staffers that want to execute his policy, that he has confidence in, and I think every president's entitled to that".

"DRAIN THE SWAMP!" Trump tweeted on Thursday, repeating a promise from his 2016 election campaign.

Kelly had defended Bolton just two weeks ago at at a lecture series in Sarasota, Florida, telling an audience he believes the accounts detailed in Bolton's forthcoming book.


Harvard law Professor Alan Dershowitz argued on the Senate floor that "if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest, that can not be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment".

Lee publicly signed onto the measure after a contentious closed-door January briefing on Iran with Trump administration officials. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has topped his rivals in fundraising while edging former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the first two voting contests of Iowa and New Hampshire.

Congratulations to John Kelly for having the courage to defend Vindman and speak out against Trump now that the impeachment trial is over and Vindman has been fired and slandered. What would it say to a real great-power, competitors like Russian Federation and China, if we can not even remain united in the face of a lesser challenger such as Iran?

"In fact, they're overwhelmingly good people", Kelly said, adding that he disagreed with Trump "a number of times", though as head of DHS, Kelly was responsible for implementing Trump's border and immigration policies.

Although their relationship has been strained since Kelly's departure, Trump told reporters around the time of Kelly's December 2018 resignation, "John Kelly will be leaving".

In response, the White House stated categorically that Trump will veto the bill that emerges from Congress, arguing in effect for unlimited and unilateral presidential powers to wage war.
