The 27 Republicans who voted with Democrats to block Trump from taking military action against Iran

The House on Friday passed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to block the Trump administration from funding military action against Iran without congressional approval. 

The vote came amid rising tensions between Washington and Tehran as Iran surpassed the uranium enrichment limitations imposed by the Obama-era nuclear agreement.

“Iran better be careful. They're treading on very dangerous territory. Iran of you listening, you better be careful,” Trump told reporters Friday.

The amendment, passed by a 251-170 vote, was part of Democrats’ efforts to get progressives’ support behind the NDAA after complaints that its $733 billion price tag is too high.

Most House Republicans opposed the measure, saying it could prevent Trump and the Pentagon from swiftly responding to threats emanating from Iran.

However, 27 Republicans broke rank to vote for the amendment.

“If my war-hungry colleagues — some of whom have already suggested that we invade Venezuela, North Korea and probably a few other countries before lunch time tomorrow — if they’re so certain in their case against Iran, let them bring their authorization to use military force against Iran to this very floor,” Rep.
