The #Senate passed a bipartisan resolution to limit President Trump’s ability to take #Military action against #Iran in the wake of the airstrike that killed a top commander last month.
8 Republicans joined Democrats, voting in favor of the measure.
And Sen. Paul, one of Trump’s strongest defenders, argued last month that the resolution is necessary because “the Constitution specifically says the warmaking power resides in Congress.”
But Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Thursday the move to kill Soleimani was appropriate and should be commended. Other Republican senators, including Sen. James Risch, the head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, echoed his remarks.
“The president defended American lives and showed Iran that terrorism and, most importantly, spilling American blood is something that will come at a price,” Inhofe said on the floor. “We’re in the best negotiating position with Iran since 1979,” he added, referring to when the current regime in Tehran came to power.
The vote failed to meet the 67-vote threshold needed to overcome Trump’s likely veto. The president vetoed a war powers resolution in 2019.
