Pompeo again declines to present evidence of ‚imminent‘ threat that led to strike against Iranian general

Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, is pushing for the declassification of Trump’s formal notification to Congress over Soleimani’s killing, which has sparked a dangerous escalation between the two longtime foes.

Menendez on Trump Admin’s Decision to Flout Congress’ Role in Approving Arm Sales to Saudi Arabia, UAE

“In trying to explain this move, the Administration failed to even identify which legal mechanism it thinks it is using, described years of malign Iranian behavior but failed to identify what actually constitutes an emergency today, and critically, failed to explain how these systems, many of which will take years to come online, would immediately benefit either the United States or our allies and thus merit such hasty action. With this move, the President is destroying the productive and decades-long working relationship on arms sales between the Congress and the Executive Branch. The possible consequences of this decision will ultimately threaten the ability of the U.S. defense industry to export arms in a manner that is both expeditious and responsible.”

US senators urge Evo not to be re-elected

“Bolivia is heading in a very dangerous direction, aligning itself with illegitimate and illegal regimes, including that of (Nicolás) Maduro in Venezuela. It is important that all parties respect the Constitution of Bolivia, which includes limits on mandates,” said Republican Senator Ted Cruz. The resolution, led by Democratic lawmaker Bob Menéndez, calls on Latin American democracies, including Bolivia, to respect “the peaceful regular transfers of power through elections.”

US-Senatoren gegen Wiederwahl von Evo Morales in Bolivien

Am 1. Februar präsentierten Bob Menéndez und Dick Durbin von den Demokraten und Ted Cruz von den Republikanern auf der ersten Sitzung des US-Senats im neuen Jahr einen Resolutionsentwurf, in dem die bolivianische Regierung aufgerufen wird, „die demokratischen Prinzipien zu respektieren“. Nun befasst sich der außenpolitische Ausschuss des Senats mit dem Entwurf, um in den kommenden Tagen eine Entscheidung zur Abstimmung zu treffen. Hochrangige bolivianische Politiker zeigten sich empört und bezeichneten den Vorstoß der Senatoren als Einmischung in die inneren Angelegenheiten Boliviens.
