As #Saudi prince visits D.C., Senate to vote on ending Trump’s military support for #Yemen bombings

***The vote comes the same day U.S. President Donald Trump is Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Supporters of the bipartisan Senate resolution, which has the backing of conservative Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), are pressing hard for a debate.

“The Constitution is pretty clear on this point. It says that Congress shall have the power to declare war. Congress, not the president, not the Pentagon, but Congress,” Lee said on the floor last week.
