Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement on Speaker’s Pelosi’s War Powers Resolution:

“The President’s decision to strike the world’s bloodiest terrorist, Qasem Soleimani, was lawful under Article II of the Constitution and the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This critical precision strike, which took out one of the most heinous terrorists responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers and allies and the wounding of thousands more, was an act of deterrence against current and future aggression. I oppose Speaker Pelosi’s partisan War Powers Resolution, which limits the President’s constitutional authority as Commander-in-Chief and threatens the security and safety of our United States military and our allies.”
