‘No Missile Hit the Plane’

Iran denies Western allegations a Ukrainian jetliner that crashed outside Tehran was brought down by an Iranian missile and calls on the U.S. and Canada to share any information they have on the crash.

WARNING: The following video contains material that some viewers may find disturbing due to the graphic nature.

War Powers Vote

The House passed the war powers resolution yesterday - split mostly along party lines.

It would only limit the president’s power to hit Iran. Congressman Denver Riggleman (R-VA) calls that an overreaction to last week’s strike on terrorist and Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani.

Because the resolution is privileged, the Senate could be forced to vote on it or a similar resolution that has been introduced by Sen. Tim Kaine.

When will Pelosi Move on Impeachment?

The House speaker says she will “soon″ transmit the articles of impeachment against Trump, signaling a potential thaw in the standoff with Senate Republicans as she warned against rushing to an acquittal without a fair trial.
