Mike Lee (R-UT) rants “The worst briefing on a military issue I've seen in 9 years”

Mike Lee (R-UT) doesn’t want to be told by the WH to “shut up and dribble” on discussing War Powers issues. As if no discussion by Congress was relevant to the question of the necessity and proportionality of assassinating Suleimani.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that the House will vote tomorrow on a War Powers Resolution to curb potential military action by President Trump toward Iran.

The big picture: Democrats and some Republicans have criticized the administration for not obtaining congressional approval before killing one of Iran’s most powerful officials. Democrats specifically have questioned claims that there was an “imminent” threat posed by Soleimani, with many stating after Wednesday’s briefing that nothing that officials presented them with alleviated their concerns.
