Restraining Order

AP: House nears vote on restraining Trump’s actions against Iran. “The House vote comes a day after the Trump administration briefed lawmakers on its actions in Iran. Democrats and several Republicans called the briefings inadequate, adding that officials did not provide enough details about why the attack was justified … Trump said Thursday that he ‘had calls from numerous senators and numerous congressmen and women saying it was the greatest presentation they’ve ever had.'”

+ On NBC, even VP Pence admitted that the presentation may have only been the second or third greatest ever. “We’re simply not able to share with every member of the House and Senate the intelligence that supported the president’s decision to take out Qasem Soleimani … I can assure your viewers that there was — there was a threat of an imminent attack.”
