  • Senate Fails to Override Veto on S.J.Res.68
On May 7, 2020, the Senate failed to override a presidential veto on S.J.Res.68, a joint resolution to direct the removal of U.S. Armed Forces from hostilities against Iran that have not been authorized by Congress. The joint resolution was originally introduced on January 9, shortly after the assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, and passed in both the Senate and the House in the following months. The failure to override the veto represents an unsuccessful attempt on behalf of Congress to limit President Trump’s power to order U.S. military action in Iran.
