The Trump administration does not have congressional authorization to go to war against Iran, the Democratic leader of the US House of Representatives said on Thursday May 16th amid escalating tensions in the region, Reuters reported.  

US 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.
