More Than A Dozen GOP Senators Are On Board To Limit Trump’s War Powers: Tim Kaine

Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) spoke with the Daily Beast on Tuesday and said that more and more Republicans seem to be on board with limiting Donald Trump’s ability to go to war with Iran after the reportedly disastrous security briefing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave legislators last week.

Kaine told the Beast that there are around a dozen GOP senators willing to vote in favor of a resolution that requires congressional approval before any escalation of military activity.

The Democratic Senator also said that there might be more Republicans that are on board that he doesn’t know of yet.

Multiple lawmakers were frustrated with Pompeo’s briefing, saying that it was “evasive or dismissive” when it came to any sort of rationale for the targeted killing of Iranian general Qassim Suleimani.
