Both of Illinois Senators are standing up against the President having powers to declare war against Iran. Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth both voted in support of a measure that makes it clear only Congress can declare war or authorize specific hostilities against a country.

 

Duckworth says weeks ago when the President Trump allowed for an attack on Iran he overstepped his authority to wage war.

 

 

The 55 – 45 vote comes as the President is likely to veto the bill.
