The House of Representatives officially voted in favor of a War Powers Resolution.

This step by Democrats is intended to limit President Trump’s military action toward Iran.

“The resolution passed, 224-194, mostly along party lines, but both parties had some defectors: eight Democrats voted against the measure and three Republicans voted in favor of it,” Fox News reported.

“Independent Rep. Justin Amash, who left the Republican Party last year, also voted in favor of the measure,” the report added.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said, “We deserve the respect from the administration and that Congress deserves under the Constitution.

“The Constitution of the United States calls that there be cooperation when initiating hostilities,” Pelosi added.

Trump tweeted that he fully agrees with an analysis from John Bolton. “Smart analysis, I fully agree!” President Trump wrote.

Bolton’s analysis read, “The 1973 War Powers Resolution is unconstitutional. It reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of how the Constitution allocated foreign affairs authority between the President and Congress.”

“The Resolution should be repealed,” Bolton concluded.

Analyzing America previously reported that Nancy Pelosi intended to have the House will vote to limit Trump’s war powers on Iran as tensions grow.

Pelosi wrote a letter to Democratic members of the House, which read, the “provocative and disproportionate” airstrike on Soleimani “endangered our servicemembers, diplomats and others by risking a serious escalation of tensions with Iran.”

“The resolution, which Pelosi said will be introduced and voted on this week, will mandate that military hostilities with Iran cease within 30 days unless further congressional authorization like a declaration of war is taken,” USA Today reported.

A similar resolution will be introduced in the Senate by Tim Kaine, D-Va.

More from Fox News:

The resolution is non-binding but is meant to reassert congressional authority and rebuke Trump’s decision to take out Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani in a drone strike last Friday while he traveled to an airport in Baghdad, Iraq. Trump did not consult with congressional leaders ahead of the attack that killed the Iranian military leader and afterward sent Congress a notification explaining the rationale but kept it classified.

The resolution “requires the president to consult with Congress ‘in every possible instance’ before introducing United States Armed Forces into hostilities.”

Former DHS secretary Jeh Johnson says Trump had ample constitutional authority to take out SoleimaniVideo
The measure also handcuffs Trump when it comes to future strikes.

The resolution says that “Congress has not authorized the president to use military force against Iran.” The measure “directs the president to terminate the use of United States Armed Forces to engage in hostilities in or against Iran or any part of its government or military” unless there is a specific blessing by Congress.

The measure was sponsored by freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., who is a former CIA analyst and Pentagon official who served in Iraq.

The resolution was widely panned by Republican lawmakers in the House, who called the measure a political move against the president and accused Democrats of empowering Iran by condemning the White House’s airstrike.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif, said, “For the party that claims they care about the Constitution, Democrats might want to brush up on their facts.”

“If they did, they’d realize their actions today are shameful and are embarrassing even by the low standards they set in their impeachment inquiry,” McCarthy concluded.

Republican congressman Matt Gaetz didn’t agree with his fellow GOP members and argued that Congres ought to have the right to send troops into combat.

“If our service members have the courage to fight and die in these wars, Congress ought to have the courage to vote for or against them,” Gaetz said. “I’m voting for this resolution.

  1. It seems to me, and maybe I am qrong. The house wants to do away with the executive branch completely and only have the house.

    • I think you are right on that . They (the house)think they really control everything in clouding the people and the President .You know we the people are really tierd of these currupt and tyrants.

      • Exactly; if the President alerts them – Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Schumer, and the rest of their squad, they would have leaked the information straight to Iran and we would have had casualties of our people and ol’ Solomi would have gotten away. The current Congress is totally corrupt and can not be trusted. Trump did the right thing all the way.

        • I totally agree. If they knew, they would have LEAKED it.. Obama killed Bin Laden. Did he go to congress first? I don’t remember that.
          Their hatred for this president is ao far off the charts, that it is scary to think what would happen if they took over again, all because he disrupted their plans for Hillary to continue the Obama take down of this country.
          What on earth has happened to our country?? How did it get this bad in just a short time?? Corruption just spread like a virus. It’s evil as if Satan was running the democratic party.. being against everything that used to be good.

  2. Everything Pelosi does shows how power-hungry and how unaware of the constitution she really is. She is hate-filled and recklace and so arrogant that she thinks she knows more than she does. SHE is the one who is getting us into trouble, n o t !onald Trump! She is an idiot!

  3. Pelosi received a call from Vice President Mike Pence BEFORE the strike….but Nancy told the person that notified her that Pence was asking for her…to tell Pence she’d call him back. Arrogant woman was going to be informed and brushed off the 2nd highest in command off. Eat a rock, Nancy!!

  4. Trump will never get the blessing from Congress as long as he is President! They have been doing nothing but objecting to anything and everything he does.
    I’m proud of the way he stands up and does what he believes is right.

  5. It is so sad that Liberals Democrats are undermining the president authority to protect the American people and de country as a hole, if we have any bombs hitting American here and abroad we know who to blame, God protects us NOT from enemies abroad but from the Liberal Democrats who are the clearly the REAL ENEMY

  6. Her and the rest of the dem.s are fighting to make us a third world country. They should be working with this adm. instead of fighting because they lost the election. We need a change there so we can get people that understand our CONSTITUTION. They have to remember they work for the people not to line their pockets. We need to hve time limits on all the ALL THE OFFICES…

  7. where in the world was the hate and disdain from the Democrats when their beloved obama did this ? President Obama ordered a drone attack on Anwar Al Awlaki, a US citizen born in the State of New Mexico, no due process, no innocent until proven guilty. Yet not a peep from the left about it. Obama ordered another drone strike a few days later that killed his 16 year old son, who also was a U.S. Citizen. I find that the Democrats HATE of our President is more then showing . They need to get over the fact that they lost the election, and let our President do his Job. The Democrats also need to have a class on the Constitution. They are not Gods , and need to get back to work for we The United States citizens who elected them . I will never vote for a Democrat again

  8. It is time for Civil Unrest . We cannot continue to put up with these stupid ,braindead , house of rep. Leaders. It is time for physical restraint & or opposition.

  9. Nancy Pee work with 45 to solve the issues plaguing the American citizens instead of this senseless power struggle…you did it with all the rest of the Republican presidents why not Trump ?

  10. The Dems are trying to take all Authority away from the President and give it to themselves! Gaetz sold the American people out as well. I wonder how much money he got for his vote! If certain people like Oman Ilmar and Talib are informed ahead of any military action by Trump, they will warn the enemy or alert the Media!!

  11. We know there are some who can,t keep there mouths shut, so why would the Pres. give them a heads up, do you remember when Obumma started telling what our troops were going to do. And now with this stupid ass vote they are showing Iran that we are split on how forceful we will be in the future.

  12. This is off subject but I found out today that we have people in congress who have contracts with the news media ——-This can,t be good——.

  13. House can shove it. Our Commander in Chief makes these decision’s. Pelosi needs to remember what her place is, asimply a Speaker of the House.

  14. Wtg you spineless POS miss pigi, iran was standing down and now you have just given the a boost, you learned well from the viet nam protestors as north viet nam was about to give up until they saw schittheads like you, taking up their cause. You will have blood on your hands if they start back up on the attack.. Trump took out that other shitthead after they attacked us, but that doesnt fit into you hate trump syndrome that you are experiencing. Go back to the bar, along with the other schittheads and leave the governing of the US to the adults. As was reported they tried to notify you beforehand but you were too busy being a drunken schitthead

  15. Big fkn deal she helped pass a solor law and made a big hoopla about it. There are many items on the congressional agenda, when are you and the Democrats going to EARN your pay any not waste time and steal it!!!

  16. the declaration of independence states that whenever a government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to institute new government.

  17. It’s all about spiting the President. Just so this power hungry witch can have her way, the lives of our military are in more danger than ever. These dangerous games are destroying this Country. Since she’s employed by ‘The People’, can we not fire her ass?

  18. None of these radical libs represent their districts. Pelosi, AOC, Tlaib, Omar and countless others represent only opposing views to the executive branch.Their districts are crumbling into filth and wastelands as their visions of grandeur and power consume them. Nero had the same visions as did Stalin and Hitler

  19. any resolution have to pass the senate which they wont, and note again pelosi is hammered as always , i bet that glass she has in her hand is straight vodka

  20. As a republic which we stand. they are taking advantage of what they think we feel. Let me for one say. The house is not for the republic they are for Financial and emoral gain. Just being Real here. Since day one of the Trump Presidency they have been after him. THis is not due process but a canibalistic mob trying to devour our Government and control. I for one refuse to be controlled. so Let it be said. We the People are Speaking. Let the Republic be represented not the system.

  21. The demoncrats in our US Congress really need to be stopped

    however possible as immediately as possible

    ‘REALLY!!!

    💥💞👍TRUMPence our/his US ReTRUMPlican Lawmakers 2016-2028 successfully US Landslide Reelected assuredly
    Amen & Amen👍💞💥

  22. PELOSI’S RAGE AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BEYOND REASON OF ANY KIND! PELOSI AND COMPANY BELIEVE THEY ARE WELL ABOVE THE PRESIDENT! This is what you will continue to get when Democrats Gain Power in The House or Senate! They ARE DRUNK with Power! They are NOT SANE ANY LONGER! They are Trashing Our President as if he is The Terrorist, not Soleimani,! Now, it appears the Iranians brought down the plane carrying the Canadians, Ukrainians and Others…no Americans were on board. Now they are blaming Trump for the plane being blasted out of the sky by the Iranian’s Missiles. Pres. Trump, with excellent intelligence, Spot on Targeted the Vehicle carrying Soleimani…the mass murderer of Americans, the #1 Beast responsible for the Reign of Terror Against Americans, Our Embassy in Iraq, Prisonment and Torture of Iraqi Citizens if they do not Swear Allegiance to their Tyranny and Terrorism. President Trump bears No Responsibility for their reign of Terrorism which has been going on since the early 70’s. He DID THE RIGHT THING AND IS NOT THE ENEMY! Thank God for President Trump!

  23. EVERYONE GET OUT AND VOTE TRUMP 2020. We need to get these people in Congress out of power. That is the only way to change this. VOTE TRUMP 2020

  24. The declaration of Independence states WE THE PEOPLE have the right to abolish the alter or abolish the government and institute a new one. Lets get to it, I think we have enough evidence. We certaintly have more than the dumocraps had against TRUMP that congress held in their impeachment trial of TRUMP.

  25. That would be fine, but while they are waiting to hear from congress, who doesn’t agree with the president, they may be too late. Or the democrats would notify our enemy to what is going on.. this war could be over soon, if president is allowed to do his job without interference. I don’t understand why congress has so much say so over what the president is doing. This is no way to run a country, when we know the democrats are all in bed with the enemy. They end this, they lose all their extra money, that’s why they are so upset over th terrorist, we killed.

  26. These snivelers are at it again!! Trying to be relevant!! The demonicrats have had years to fix a lot of this stupid sht but they are too busy taking bribes and going to their party’s for tea and [email protected]#@!! They side with the enemy of which they payed off and on one hand say they Sanction and on the other hand they hand them money for [email protected]##@! They surely would have dimed out Trump’s plan to the enemy for more favor and kickbacks and to surely make Trump look bad with a foiled plan!!! 40 years of demonicrat corruption and one world government power [email protected]##@!! 🙁
