Nancy Pelosi just sold out America to Iran with this one letter
Iran is escalating tensions with the United States.
President Trump is doing his best to respond and keep the nation out of war.
But Nancy Pelosi just sold out America to Iran with this one letter.
Pelosi and other Democrats and members of the Fake News Media were in mourning after President Trump announced a drone strike killed Iranian terrorist General Qasem Suleimani.
Suleimani commanded Iran’s Qud forces and oversaw operations that resulted in the deaths of over 600 soldiers.
But because this victory was achieved on Donald Trump’s watch and exposed the weakness of Barack Obama’s Iran policy, Democrats erupted in rage.
In response, Pelosi announced in a “Dear Colleague” letter the House would vote on a War Powers Act resolution to try and stop the President from taking on Iran.
The letter made it clear Pelosi believed the strike on Suleimani was illegal and a war crime.
Pelosi’s letter begins with the declaration that President Donald Trump’s airstrike last week targeting Iranian General Qasem Suleimani, leader of the terrorist Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IGRC) Quds Force, responsible for the murders of hundreds of Americans and for recent attacks on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, was “provocative and disproportionate,” terms suggesting the attack was illegal under international law and could constitute a war crime.
The letter further claims that Trump’s action “endangered our servicemembers, diplomats and others by risking a serious escalation of tensions with Iran” — placing the responsibility for violence not on Iran, which recently attacked a U.S. Navy drone; a Saudi oil field; and, via proxies, Americans soldiers and civilians in Iraq; but on the United States, which had restrained itself until the recent assault by an Iranian-backed militia on the embassy.
The letter goes on to describe a new resolution that would “limit the President’s military actions regarding Iran,” essentially signaling a surrender in the potential conflict before the Iranian regime itself had managed to respond.
Pelosi adds that the resolution “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.” Under current law, the War Powers Act of 1973 limits the time that a president can lead a military effort, without formal authorization, to 60 days following a required presidential report to Congress when hostilities begin.
This resolution flies in the face of the Constitution.
America has one Commander-in-Chief, not 435 in the House of Representatives.
The strike on Suleimani was also perfectly legal as he was a legitimate military target operating in a country where Congress authorized the President to take military actions.
But facts don’t matter to Pelosi and her Trump-hating and anti-American fellow Democrats.
All they care about is hurting President Trump.
