House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she plans to limit President Donald Trump's military actions in Iran by introducing a War Powers Resolution in the House.
"This week, the House will introduce and vote on a War Powers Resolution to limit the President's military actions regarding Iran," Pelosi wrote in a letter to fellow Democrats overnight.
The House Democrats voted to impeach Trump in December. But Pelosi is still withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate that would allow the impeachment process to continue.
Pelosi's resolution "reasserts Congress's long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken" the military action in Iran will "cease within 30 days."
Pelosi and other Democrats criticized Trump for not informing Congress of his plans to kill Iranian general Qassem Soleimani with a drone air strike last week.
Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon that "legal notice is not required" for him to take action to protect the country.
Trump advised Congress - in a tweet - that he will "quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner" if Iran attacks "any U.S. person or target."
Iran has vowed to take revenge on Trump and America for killing Soleimani. But Trump hit back, saying he has 52 targets in Iran that will go up in smoke if Americans are attacked.
The targets include military sites, oil fields, and even cultural and historic sites in Iran.
"They're allowed to kill our people. They're allowed to torture and maim our people. They're allowed to use roadside bombs and blow our people up, and we're not allowed to touch their cultural sites? It doesn't work that way," Trump told reporters on Air Force One on Sunday.
In other news, Iran reportedly placed an $80 million bounty on Trump's head. Mexican comedian George Lopez offered to do the job for half that amount.
Lopez made the comment on an Instagram post shared by Chicano Worldstar, a news outlet that wrote about the bounty on Trump's head.
"We'll do it for half," Lopez wrote.
