House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced that she plans to try to curtail President Donald Trump’s power to respond to attacks from Iran after the Trump strike taking out IRGC terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani.

Trump ordered an airstrike to take out Soleimani after he masterminded an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and his militia members were behind multiple rockets attacks on Americans, killing one American and wounding four.

Trump also said that if Iran retaliates for Soleimani’s death, he’s selected 52 targets that could be hit in response, the number 52 being in honor of the 52 American hostages held by the Iranians the last time they invaded an American embassy in 1979. They were held for 444 days under Democratic president Jimmy Carter and were only released the day Ronald Reagan was sworn in.

From Fox News:

“They’re allowed to kill our people. They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people, and we’re not allowed to touch their cultural sites? It doesn’t work that way,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Sunday.

Pelosi said today they would try to pass a War Powers act to restrict Trump from acting.

“This week, the House will introduce and vote on a War Powers Resolution to limit the President’s military actions regarding Iran,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to fellow Democrats, referring to a similar Senate resolution to be introduced by Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va. “It reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days.”

But Senate Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Pelosi that wasn’t going to fly in a series of tweets with a terrific response at the end.
