PostSubject: Senate Rebukes Trump Over Saudi War In Yemen   Thu Mar 14, 2019 10:24 pm

The Senate has passed a resolution aimed at ending U.S. support for Saudi Arabia’s ongoing war in Yemen, a rebuke to President Trump that may force him to issue the first veto of his presidency.

The resolution passed by 54-46 with bipartisan support, the culmination of a years-long effort led by Sens. Bernie Sanders (D-VT), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) to claw back Congress’s constitutional war powers and end American support for a humanitarian disaster in Yemen.

“Today, we in the Senate have the opportunity to take a major step forward in ending the horrific war in Yemen, and alleviating the terrible suffering of the people in one of the poorest countries on earth,” Sanders said in a Senate floor speech shortly before the vote. “Equally important, we can finally begin the process of reasserting the Congress’ responsibility over war making.”

Lee decried the “unconstitutional war effort” in “an undeclared war” in his own speech.

All Democrats voted for the resolution, and were joined by seven Republicans.
