    (The Hill) Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday said that an airstrike that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani was not authorized and Congress was not consulted on the decision.

    “The Administration has conducted tonight’s strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against Iran,” Pelosi said in a statement.

    “Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress,” she added.

    “We cannot put the lives of American service members, diplomats and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions,” the top House Democrat said.

    “The House of Representatives passed an annual defense-policy bill that would prohibit the use of federal funds for military operations against Iran without congressional consent and repeal the 2002 authorization of force against Iraq.”  Wasn’t this amendment removed during the negotiations with Senate?

      @salemcourt Yes it was. I’m just posting some news here, not pumping up Nancy Pelosi, the most ineffective Speaker of the House in living memory.

    The House of Representatives should immediately condemn this action by President Trump.

      Sorry, but the House agreed to remove the Iran

      amendment from the Defense budget. Their crying

      foul now is just hypocrisy. After all the House owns

      the purse!

    No comment on the action itself, just the fact that he didn’t file the proper paperwork.

    As expected.

    Did somebody ask Madame Jellyfish why she didn’t support Ro Khanna’s amendment, which specifically would have prevented Cheeto from starting a war with Iran?

    I didn't refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton because any goddamned Russian told me to. I refused to vote for her because she is a warmongering, election stealing, Goldman Sachs fellating, Republican WHORE. No offense to sex workers.

    There goes Pelosi pissing into the wind so the Republicans do not show any sense of shame or remorse.

    The 188 democrats who helped the republicans pass the NDAA 3 weeks ago gave the Mad Orange Bomber the authorization.

    All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
