Democrats: Trump Lacks Authority for ‘Bloody Nose’ Strike on North Korea
Eighteen Democratic Senators have reportedly signed a letter to President Trump informing him they are “deeply concerned about the potential consequences of a preemptive military strike on North Korea and the risks of miscalculation and retaliation.” Further, they assert, “without congressional authority, a preventative or preemptive U.S. military strike would lack either a constitutional basis or legal authority.”
They’re certainly right.
Alas, as I argue in a piece circulating for publication elsewhere, there’s precious little they can do about it. I’ll post more when the piece gets published.
