US Democrats look to limit Trump’s Iran war powers as saber rattling grows

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Sunday that Democrats would introduce a new resolution before the House of Representatives that she said would limit President Donald Trump from unilaterally leading the United States into a war against Iran.
Pelosi has been leading the backlash against Trump’s decision to authorize a drone deadly strike against powerful Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, an operation that Trump only officially informed Congress about on Saturday — nearly 48 hours after the event.
Pelosi stated in a letter to Democrats that the resolution “reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days.”
