GOP Sen. Sides With Dems After Hearing Trump’s ‘Un-American and Unconstitutional’ Iran Briefing
Conservative Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) was not happy at all after attending a briefing regarding Donald Trump’s reason behind the assassination of Iranian General Qassim Suleimani.
Shortly after the briefing, Lee appeared to be “ANGRY” and lashed out at the U.S. president.
“It’s un-American, it’s unconstitutional, and it’s wrong,” Lee said, referring to Trump’s reason behind the airstrike.

Lee now stands with Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), who pushed a vote in the Senate against a war.
Wow, Mike Lee is ANGRY.
"It's un-American, it's unconstitutional, and it's wrong," Lee says after noting briefers said senators couldn't debate the merits of the strike
Says he was undecided on Kaine's war powers resolution, but now he supports it.

A ticked off Mike Lee says the Iran briefing was so bad it changed his mind on Kaine’s war powers resolution, and now he’s going to support it

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) is ANGRY after the administration briefing.
"I walked into that briefing undecided" on a War Powers Act resolution.
"That briefing is what changed my mind … I'm now going to support it."
