Senate Democrats say they have enough votes to curb Trump’s war powers after strike on Iranian general

The chairman of that committee, Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., mocked the administration’s shifting justifications for the attack.  

“We heard the strike went forward because Soleimani did so many bad things in the past and was plotting for the future. Then, when that didn’t work, they went back to an imminent threat, but we didn’t know when or where it would take place,” Engel said. “Next, it was going to be an embassy attack. Then four embassies were going to be attacked. Then maybe it wasn’t four embassies.” https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/01/14/iran-senate-vote-to-limit-president-trumps-war-powers-after-soleimani-strike/4453555002/
