House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is charging President Donald Trump with a war crime for killing Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, who is responsible for the murders of hundreds of Americans.
In a letter sent to her Democrat colleagues in the House of Representatives late Sunday, Pelosi said she is drafting a "War Powers Resolution" that charges Trump with a war crime under international law.
Pelosi claims the death of Soleimani was "provocative and disproportionate."
The letter further claims that Trump's military action amounts to a war crime because he did not have Congressional approval to go after an Iranian government official on foreign soil.
Soleimani was a military commander, not a government official.
Soleimani was among 10 Iranians killed in a surgical drone strike at the Baghdad Airport on the night of Jan. 3. He was 62.
Pelosi's War Resolution would limit Trump's military powers and prevent him from taking any more military action against Iran.
Pelosi's letter is considered America's "pre-emptive surrender to Iran."

Drone attacks on an oil field in Saudi Arabia sparked fears of gas stations running dry and long lines similar to the gas shortages in America 4 decades ago.
According to published reports, multiple drones bombed an oil field in Saudi Arabia on Saturday.
In response to the attacks, Saudi Arabia shut down half of its oil production - a move that could cause massive outages at gas stations in America.
Saudi defenses were unable to stop the wave of remote-controlled drones that dropped bombs on the oil fields, threatening the global crude oil supply.
Experts say the Saudis should've been prepared for such an attack in this day and age.
"Flying a drone, that puts a new spin on things," security consultant Jeffrey Price told Yahoo News in an email. "It enables attacks that previously weren't able to be conducted with that level of stealth and detachment from the attacker."
"The bottom line is that we are likely to see many more of these sorts of attacks, and in particular, coordinated attacks on multiple targets are likely, possibly in tandem with a cyber attack component," said Milena Rodban, an independent risk consultant, in an email to Yahoo News.
Longer lines than usual formed at gas stations in Atlanta over the weekend, as wary older travelers recalled the nationwide gasoline shortage that crippled major cities and caused civil unrest in the 1970s.
Question: Did you fill up your gas tank this weekend?
