Guthrie Votes ‘No’ on War Powers Resolution

Washington, January 9, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) today voted against H.Con.Res. 83, Speaker Pelosi’s War Powers Resolution:

“President Trump acted in America’s best interest when he ordered the strike that killed Iranian General Soleimani,” said Guthrie. “This afternoon, I voted against Speaker Pelosi’s War Powers Resolution that would undermine President Trump’s authority to protect American troops in the Middle East. This resolution fully ignores President Trump’s clear ongoing efforts to avoid war and bring Iran to the negotiating table, and it would further prevent President Trump from keeping our troops safe. I will continue to pray for our brave men and women abroad, and I stand ready to work with President Trump and my colleagues to negotiate with Iran on a deal that keeps our nation safe.”
