Senator Lindsey Graham slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s effort to push a War Powers Resolution that would curb President Trump’s ability to conduct future military operations against Iran.

In a letter written to her fellow Democrat colleagues, Pelosi said, “This week, the House will introduce and vote on a War Powers Resolution to limit the President’s military actions regarding Iran.”

Pelosi continued, “It 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.”

In response to Pelosi’s move, Senator Graham blasted the Democrat Party’s “pathetic response to the killing of Soleimani” and laid out five reasons why he will oppose any War Powers Resolution.

“To my Democratic colleagues: 40 years of Iranian aggression needs to be dealt with forcefully,” Graham tweeted. “Iran is:

▶️ The largest state sponsor of terrorism.
▶️ Threatening the existence of Israel by arming Hezbollah to the teeth.
▶️ Providing arms to kill Americans in Iraq.
▶️ Dismembering Syria and Yemen.
▶️ Killing their own citizens who are demanding freedom” Continued Below

“President Trump is right to demand this regime change its behavior,” Graham declared. “The Democratic Party’s pathetic response to the killing of Soleimani only emboldens our enemies.”

“I will oppose any War Powers resolution pushed by @SpeakerPelosi so as to allow this President to have the latitude he needs as Commander in Chief,” he added.

“The last thing America needs is 535 Commanders in Chief. Americans elected one: President Trump,” Graham concluded. Video Below
