Mike Lee said : “We now have a majority of colleagues, Democratic and Republican, who will stand strong for the principle that we shouldn't be at war without a vote of Congress," Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., said. Kaine is the chief sponsor of a resolution that would bar Trump from using military force against Iran unless Congress specifically votes to authorize such action. The Virginia Democrat said the legislation could come up for a Senate vote as early as next week. The U.S. should not order American troops to risk their lives in the Middle East "unless we have the guts to have the debate and have the vote to say that a war is in the national interest," Kaine said. Democrats have argued that Trump acted recklessly when he authorized a drone strike killing Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani – a controversial decision that has heightened U.S.-Iran tensions and sparked fears of a broader conflict in the Middle East. Republicans hold a 53-seat majority, and most GOP senators are expected to oppose the resolution, arguing it's unnecessary and unconstitutional. But Kaine said four GOP senators have agreed to support his resolution: Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine and Todd Young of Indiana. Young had expressed concerns about an earlier version of Kaine's bill. But Kaine said he has revised it to win more GOP support, and a spokeswoman for Young, Amy Grappone, confirmed Tuesday that he will support the revised bill. The House of Representatives passed a similar resolution last week, but GOP leaders slammed it as a meaningless PR stunt. Unlike the Senate measure, the House bill does not carry the force of law; Trump can ignore it. Kaine’s version, by contrast, carries the force of law. Lee said he decided to vote for Kaine's resolution last week after Trump administration officials delivered a classified briefing on the Soleimani strike that he called "insulting and demeaning". Lee said officials warned lawmakers against debating the merits of war with Iran, arguing it would "embolden" Tehran to see division in Congress. The message in that closed-door briefing was that "we need to be good little boys and girls and not debate this in public,” “I find that absolutely insane. It’s un-American, it’s unconstitutional, and it’s wrong” External link

Mike Lee said : “We now have a majority of colleagues, Democratic and Republican, who will stand strong for the principle that we shouldn't be at war without a vote of Congress," Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., said. Kaine is the chief sponsor of a resolution that would bar Trump from using military force against Iran unless Congress specifically votes to authorize such action. The Virginia Democrat said the legislation could come up for a Senate vote as early as next week. The U.S. should not order American troops to risk their lives in the Middle East "unless we have the guts to have the debate and have the vote to say that a war is in the national interest," Kaine said. Democrats have argued that Trump acted recklessly when he authorized a drone strike killing Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani – a controversial decision that has heightened U.S.-Iran tensions and sparked fears of a broader conflict in the Middle East. Republicans hold a 53-seat majority, and most GOP senators are expected to oppose the resolution, arguing it's unnecessary and unconstitutional. But Kaine said four GOP senators have agreed to support his resolution: Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine and Todd Young of Indiana. Young had expressed concerns about an earlier version of Kaine's bill. But Kaine said he has revised it to win more GOP support, and a spokeswoman for Young, Amy Grappone, confirmed Tuesday that he will support the revised bill. The House of Representatives passed a similar resolution last week, but GOP leaders slammed it as a meaningless PR stunt. Unlike the Senate measure, the House bill does not carry the force of law; Trump can ignore it. Kaine’s version, by contrast, carries the force of law. Lee said he decided to vote for Kaine's resolution last week after Trump administration officials delivered a classified briefing on the Soleimani strike that he called "insulting and demeaning". Lee said officials warned lawmakers against debating the merits of war with Iran, arguing it would "embolden" Tehran to see division in Congress. The message in that closed-door briefing was that "we need to be good little boys and girls and not debate this in public,” “I find that absolutely insane. It’s un-American, it’s unconstitutional, and it’s wrong” External link
