With impeachment over, critics see Trump on 'retribution tour'

The president “Hey Reince Priebus. How do badgers work?”

President Trump's ability to use military force against Iran would be restricted unless he first received congressional approval, according to a bipartisan resolution approved by the Senate on Thursday.

The House last month passed a similar bill aimed at restraining Trump's war powers against Iran, but it was largely symbolic and not taken up by the Senate.

The former White House chief of staff argued that Trump effectively gave "an illegal order" when he solicited Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate his political rivals, and Vindman acted appropriately when he reported it. The resolution also requires that any hostilities with Iran must be explicitly authorized by a declaration of war or specific authorization for use of military force. Shelton had previously advocated an eclectic mix of unorthodox economic ideas, but her testimony focused on defending the president's right to influence monetary policy as well as the Trump administration's efforts to promote the competitive devaluation of the U.S. dollar and trade war.

Most Republicans vehemently opposed Kaine's war powers resolution, warning that it would send a signal to Iran's leadership that the US was not prepared to defend itself overseas in the future.

Eight Senate Republicans joined the chamber's Democrats to support the legislation. "The evidence presented by the House Managers, including video testimony of witnesses under oath in the House of Representatives, clearly supports the charges brought against the President in the articles of impeachment", Manchin said in a statement before the vote.

Democrats and Republicans alike criticized a briefing by the Trump administration shortly after the drone strike, saying USA officials offered vague information about a possible attack being planned by Iran but no substantial details.

The U.S. Senate passed the bipartisan war powers resolution by a vote of 55-45. Don't let it happen!' Lee in supporting the resolution, including Sen.

But the number of new infections nationally was down nearly 20% from the day before, from 3,062 to 2,478. Meanwhile, WHO sent an advance team to China this week for an worldwide mission to examine the epidemic.

But the resolution, she said, will show that "no president has the authority to commit our military to a sustained conflict".

Another Republican lawmaker, Senator John Thune, said Trump's killing of Soleimani was justified, calling the war powers resolution "an ill-advised and potentially problematic response to the president's action".

Two-thirds votes in the House and Senate would be needed to override an expected Trump veto.

Markay and Suebsaeng wrote that the president was also told to explain "how the critters function and behave, what kind of food they like, and how aggressive or deadly they could be when presented with perceived existential threats". "It's about Congress", Kaine said. Censure would allow the Senate to unite across party lines, as an equal branch of government, to formally denounce the President's actions and hold him accountable. In my opinion I think I have found a witch.

Capito added she believes Iran will be less likely to attack American forces if the country's military leaders recognize the power of the US military. "The Congress and the American people know we can not afford war".
