    all that congress gets is a report. he no more has to run these things past pelosi than he does the man in the moon.
    Bin laden attacked the US. The 2001 AUMF authorized the president to take all necessary actions against anyone who purported or aided the attacks on 9/11.

    Under what authority did the President attack Iran?

    Can you show me where you were critical of Obama's much greater military actions in Libya and Syria without seeking congressional approval?

    Were you even critical of Obama's involvement in Syria and Libya?
    The only path to truth is paved with skepticism.

    Are you forgetting that the year is 2020 and no amount of whatabouting can cleanse the stains on individual one on anything he touches?

    trumpublicans would still prefer to be Russian than Democratic and are running an administration of coverup and dictatorship.
    Be not afraid of an open convention.

    Sen. Sherrod Brown/Sen. Amy Klobuchar 2020 to win back the FIVE Midwest states that trump flipped.

    The president has authority to use preemptive strikes.
    Not sure what about this you don't understand or just don't to understand.

    In recent years, the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel has claimed that the Constitution authorizes the president, as commander in chief, to order the military to attack other countries without congressional permission if the president determines that this would be anticipatory self-defense or otherwise serve the interests of the United States — at least where the nature, scope and duration of the anticipated hostilities are “limited,” like airstrikes against Libyan government forces in 2011 and Syrian government forces in 2017 and 2018.
