Pelosi slams White House’s War Powers notification on Soleimani strike

The White House has formally notified Congress of the US strike that killed an Iranian general, as per a statement from Speaker Pelosi’s office. The 1973 War Powers Act requires the president to notify Congress of the ’circumstances necessitating the introduction of US Armed Forces’ within 48 hours. Pelosi responded saying the information conveyed ’raises more questions than it answers’.

Where were any of these Dems when Obama illegally drone striked a US citizen abroad with no congressional approval. And countless other strikes. I also agree Obama should have done these things find a bad guy kill a bad guy is a great policy to have.

Dems like Pelosi and Schiff are just upset they were not told ahead of time so they could leak the planned attack to the press.

okay but if you have so much of a problem with it then why did Congress and the Senate give so much power to the executive branch over the past couple decades?

Well luckily the 1973 act doesn't say anything about the circumstances needing to he approved by Nancy Pelosi. Just says he needs to tell congress what he did and why he did it.

The bitch & her fellow Demonrats aren’t owed anything when it comes to taking out a target who is a member of a U.S designated terrorist group Trump DID NOT need to seek congressional approval to wipe Soleimani out & their insistence otherwise proves their ignorance & unworthiness to serve in government. Trump: So, uhhh what’s happening? Advisors: We all know who Soleimani is Sir, what he’s responsible for in the last few days & why he’s currently in Iraq, we have a small window to act or he’s gone again Mr President & if that happens more Americans will die. Trump: Hang on, just wait a minute, I gotta call Crying Chuck, Nutsy Pelosi & get them to wave their Harry Potter wands to disapparate all of Congress in immediately to vote on if I can or can’t use my own powers that I already have to do the job I was voted in to do. Uhh do you think that AOC, Omar & Tlaib will be nice enough to not call their media & Iranian contacts & warn them what we have planned? Surely we can get this organised within 15 minutes? Advisors: No Mr President, this can’t happen in 15 minutes. Trump: But we’ll make them all very angry, I just wanna play with my LEGO’s. Let him go, better Americans die than Demonrats get angry at me again. This is exactly what these idiot Demonrats think POTUS should have done & how he should have behaved instead of using his rightful powers to wipe out the head of a legally designated terrorist group who was actively planning imminent attacks against U.S personnel. I don’t know who is more evil, these Demonrats or the powers that be in Iran.

Would she have slammed it were Hillary President and did the exact same thing? Hillary would have done it and Pelosi would have applauded her.

I remember when ghb deployed us in operation desert eagle... He spoke later stating he was concerned his actions could have prompted impeach able offense... His Intel though pulled that off the table.. 45 better be able to provide intel that demonstrates a direct threat was immediate. N not just could of been due to generals history... I am glad they got the general but now on very tricky ground to justify the take out.... Per international laws... N congressional laws on assassination..... Iran will play all their cards n no doubt with Russian help to cause a disruption between coalition partners.... On international stage...

A terrorist thug general from Iran plans and executes an attack on a US embassy, which is an ACT of WAR, we kill him and the leftist are on his side, the media is in full propaganda mode with them. It is more evidence that democrats are simply treasonist scum at this point. The leftist should be planning their defence in the coming US civil war that they are SCREAMING for.
