Latest "war powers" stories
After a years-long fight to reclaim Congress’s war powers from the presidency, supporters said Monday they they are in talks with the White House for a potentially game-changing “green light” from President Joe Biden.
The Biden administration announced its position after a bipartisan bill was introduced that would repeal the 1991 and 2002 authorizations for the wars in Iraq.
Kaine’s bill would have added little to the extant powers that congress already has to provide a check on the president’s ability to go to war.
