Eight Republican senators joined Democrats to limit President Trump’s powers on Iran. They are Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Jerry Moran of Kansas, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Todd Young of Indiana, and Mike Lee of Utah.

Basically, these GOP members of the upper chamber are generally the usual suspects when it comes to going against Trump. Here’s what’s up, via Daily Wire:

On Thursday, 55 senators, including eight Republicans, voted for a resolution that would force President Trump to obtain permission from Congress before ordering military action against Iran.

The Washington Post noted, “Trump will almost certainly veto the measure once it passes the House, and neither chamber of Congress has the votes to override that veto, lawmakers say.” That is because the 55 votes fall short of a supermajority needed to override a presidential veto.
