After president Trump requested the execution of Iranian General in Iraq, Nancy Pelosi have contended that the President has utilized a “Provocative and Disproportionate” power against General Soleimani without Congressional endorsement, and in that capacity should have been defied.
In 2011, President Barack Obama didn’t request congressional endorsement before utilizing military power against Libya. But when confronted about Obama’s move against Libya without Congressional approval, the present Speaker of the House: Nancy Pelosi thought it was alright for the former president to do as such.
Madame leader, you’re saying that the president did not need authorization, initially, and still does not need any authorization from Congress to go in Libya,” a reporter asked Pelosi.
YES,” Pelosi responded.
