  • Speaker Nancy Pelosi was meeting privately Tuesday at the Capitol with House Democrats about next steps, ending her blockade almost a month after they voted to impeach Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

    “This resolution is similar to the resolution introduced by senator Tim Kaine in the Senate,” Pelosi said in a statement late on Sunday. “It reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further congressional action is taken, the administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days.”

    President Donald Trump and his top officials offered a string of fresh explanations Friday, with Trump now contending Iranian militants had planned major attacks on four U.S. embassies.

    Reigniting a debate over who has the power to declare war, the Democratic-controlled House on Thursday approved a resolution asserting that ...

    President Donald Trump used his first campaign election rally of 2020 to argue that he served up "American justice" by ordering a drone strike to take out Iranian Gen.

    Pelosi issued the statement as lawmakers breathed a sigh of relief on Capitol Hill after Trump said he would back away from any military escalation against Tehran. But congressional Democrats are skeptical of the administration’s case for the drone strike last week that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani and dissatisfied with the rationale Trump’s team offered.

    While the Iraqi military says there are no casualties among its troops as a result of an Iranian missile strike at bases in Iraq used by U.S. forces., Iran claims that 80 'American terrorists' had been killed. The military said in a statement carried by the state news agency Wednesday that the attack lasted half an hour, starting at 1:45 a.m. local time.

    President Donald Trump has issued a stark warning to Iran, threatening to hit dozens of targets in the Islamic Republic "very fast and very hard'' if it retaliates for the targeted killing of the head of Iran's elite Quds Force. Trump appeared to respond to such threats with tweets justifying Soleimani's killing and matching the bellicose language from Iran.

    “We are ready,” said Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who said Wednesday night that she was reluctant to send the charges or name the lawmakers who would prosecute the case against Trump until she was certain of a fair process for a Senate trial. “When we see what they have, we will know who and how many we will send over.”

    "This impeachment represents an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat lawmakers, unequaled in nearly two and a half centuries of the American legislative history," Trump said in a letter to the Pelosi.

    The nearly party-line vote moved Trump's impeachment from Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Democratic-run House to the Republican-majority Senate, where Trump expects acquittal, even as new evidence is raising fresh questions about his Ukraine dealings.
