Rep. Peter DeFazio will hold a town hall meeting focused on President Trump’s repeated violations of the Constitution and Congress’s authority to declare war.
Rep. DeFazio will also discuss his legislation, H.J. Res 66, the War Powers Amendments of 2019, which would strengthen Congress’s war powers and require presidents to consult with Congress and gain congressional authorization before sending U.S. forces into conflicts.
Rep. DeFazio will be joined by constitutional law professor and author Garrett Epps, a noted expert in the subject of congressional war-making authority.
