U.S House of Representatives will vote to limit Trump’s war powers on Iran, Nancy Pelosi says

Nancy Pelosi

U.S House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House of Representatives will vote this week on legislation to limit  President Trump’s Military actions on Iran in the wake of increased tensions between the two countries after Trump ordered an airstrike killing Iranian General Soleimani last week.

In a letter to Democratic members of the House, Pelosi said the “provocative and disproportionate” airstrike on Soleimani “endangered our servicemembers, diplomats and others by risking a serious escalation of tensions with Iran. ”

Pelosi thanked lawmakers for their “patriotic leadership” during the tense period.

The resolution, which Pelosi said will be introduced and voted on this week, will mandate that military hostilities with Iran cease within 30 days unless further congressional authorization like a declaration of war is taken.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., has introduced a similar resolution in the Senate.
