REPORT: Senators pushing for new war powers authorization


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TENNESSEAN.COM:

WASHINGTON – Sen. Bob Corker plans to move forward as early as next week on a bipartisan resolution updating President Donald Trump’s authority to use military force in the ongoing war against terrorism.

Corker, the Tennessee Republican who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., rolled out a proposal on Monday that would update the president’s existing legal authority for using military force to fight terrorism in the Middle East while at the same time placing some new restrictions on that authority.

It is important to note that the article goes on to state the following:

The resolution authorizes the executive branch to use “all necessary and appropriate force” against al-Qaida, the Taliban, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and any “associated forces.”

Congressional Democrats – and even some Republicans – have been pushing for a new military force resolution, arguing that the existing one doesn’t accurately reflect today’s threats to the United States.
