Byrne: War Powers Resolution is Just More Political Grandstanding


Jan 9, 2020
Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) released the following statement following the House’s adoption of a politically motivated war powers resolution designed to discredit President Trump for using his Constitutional powers to eliminate Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

Congressman Byrne said: “Instead of thanking the brave men and women who successfully executed a surgical strike against a ruthless terrorist, House Democrats are ignoring intelligence from national security professionals of an imminent threat to Americans and manufacturing yet another opportunity to attack President Trump. This disingenuous resolution would have no legal effect and is simply a shameless vehicle for Democrats to groundlessly imply the President did not act out of the interests of American safety.

“President Trump deserves to be praised for eliminating a terrorist who killed countless Americans and allies throughout the Middle East and beyond, not pointlessly antagonized by more political grandstanding from House Democrats.”
