Republican Senator Defies Party Over Yemen

Republican Senator Mike Lee joined Independent Senator Bernie Sanders to denounce the war in Yemen with Kasie Hunt on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC.”

During the interview Sanders strongly condemned the war as “a horrific humanitarian disaster,” and posed that the United States’ involvement is “unconstitutional.”

“The Constitution is very clear. It is the Congress that has war-making powers, not the president of the United States,” Sanders told Hunt. “This war is unauthorized and, in my view, unconstitutional.”

When Hunt asked Lee for his input he responded, “I’m feeling the Bern. I completely agree with what he’s saying.”
