Maloney Statement on War Powers Resolution

Washington, D.C. - Today, the House of Representatives passed a War Powers Resolution limiting the Trump Administration’s unauthorized military action regarding Iran.

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) voted in favor of the resolution and released the following statement:

“Make no mistake: General Soleimani has the blood of American troops on his hands, and it is a good thing that he is dead.

“But we must not launch an open-ended war with Iran.

“The War Powers Resolution today will ensure this Administration makes its case for committing our forces as the framers of the Constitution demanded. Going forward, we must advance a strategy that will de-escalate the conflict with Iran, while effectively countering Iran’s malign actions.

“Our troops are the bravest and most capable in the world, and deserve nothing less than the best leadership in Congress and the White House.”
