WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 13: U.S. Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) speaks during a news conference following the bipartisan Senate vote on the War Powers Resolution on Iran with Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Tim Kaine (D-VA), Tom Udall (D-NM) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) at the U.S. Capitol on February 13, 2020 in Washington, DC. Some Republicans crossed party lines to join Democrats in voting to freeze President Trump’s ability to wage war with Iran, but fell short of the two-thirds supermajority needed to override a promised veto by Mr. Trump.
