House Votes to Limit Trump's Power to Strike Iran Without Congress | Zero Hedge: After being repeatedly ignored by presidents dating back to Ronald Reagan when it comes to the US's ever-expanding military commitments around the globe, Congress finally decided to try and take some of that discretionary power back.
Using President Trump's latest attack on Iranian interests as justification, Democratic leader and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi successfully passed a resolution that would force Trump to go to Congress for authorization before taking any further actions against Iran.
The vote in the Dem-controlled House was 224 to 194 in an almost entirely party-line vote. The vote has long been expected, and although a few Republican senators have decided to join Democrats in supporting the measure in the Senate, it's still a few votes shy of passing, according to the latest vote totals circulating in the press.
