US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday sent a letter to Democratic members of Congress, calling for a House resolution to limit Donald Trump's military powers against Iran.

Iran PressAmerica: Nancy Pelosi writes: "The resolution 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."

“This resolution is similar to the resolution introduced by Senator Tim Kaine in the Senate,” Pelosi said in a statement late on Sunday, CNN reported.

"Last week, the Trump Administration conducted a provocative and disproportionate military airstrike targeting high-level Iranian military officials. This action endangered our service members, diplomats, and others by risking a serious escalation of tensions with Iran," Pelosi writes.
