5th Congressional District Jennifer Christie Speaks Out on Iran

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) –Iran has now sought retaliation for the assassination of Qassim Suleimani by attacking U.S. military and coalition forces in Iraq. While there is no question that Suleimani was an enemy of America and our allies, the fact that President Trump did not alert our Congressional leaders nor our allies before taking this instigative action is deeply disturbing and irresponsible. The American People expect our leaders to be nonpartisan and responsible when it comes to acts of war. Our Constitution grants authority to Congress, not the President, to declare war.

A quote from Christie on January 7th:

“In this moment, Congress must take back the Constitutional power to make decisions about war on behalf of the People. In this moment, we must show leadership by deescalating the rising tensions between Iran and the USA. It’s time to be the adult in the room. In the middle of his impeachment, Trump assassinated Suleimani and we have yet to hear detailed or compelling reasons for his decision to act without consulting Congress nor our allies. An endless war with Iran is not in the interest of the people of America, Iran, nor of the world. It is time for cool heads and forward thinking.”
