War Powers

All this kerfuffle over President Trump maybe possibly ordering a "military strike" on Iran in response to the drone shoot-down... the usual suspects in Congress (Schumer/Pelosi) want to criticize Trump and say things about how "the President needs to be careful".

What they decidedly did NOT say: "The President has no unilateral power to declare war or initiate military action against Iran even under the War Powers Act given the fact there is no existential threat to the US".

Let it sink in...
