Congress has not approved war against Iran: Pelosi

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The Trump administration does not have congressional authorization to go to war against Iran, the Democratic leader of the U.S. House of Representatives said on Thursday amid escalating tensions in the region.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters that the Republican administration would provide a classified briefing for top lawmakers -- the so-called Gang of Eight -- on Iran later on Thursday.

Pelosi added that she likes that President Donald Trump 'has no appetite' for a possible war and she said she agreed with Trump's opposition to the war in Iraq.
