Normally this is not the place for old news but we start with some joe. Biden won the presidential election just under six weeks ago. And we mention that because senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell formally acknowledged that news today. The electoral college has spoken so today. I want to congratulate. President elect joe biden. The president-elect is no stranger to the senate. He's devoted himself to public service for many years. Mcconnell also congratulated his senate colleague kamala harris who will soon be the first woman to become vice president. It was a relatively warm statement but mcconnell waited until after president trump failed to overturn the results with dozens of baseless lawsuits. Not all his colleagues. When as far as mcconnell did so how do they plan to approach the new administration. Npr congressional reporter claudia griselda. She joins us now morning. Good morning steve. So how widespread is the republican acknowledgement of reality. Well it's been building up for weeks as most republicans had been refusing to acknowledge the results pointing to president. Trump's legal challenges as a reason. Why and not all mcconnell's colleagues win as far as did in terms of the congratulations for example but others have acknowledged this for example. Todd young of indiana sits very important work with the biden harris administration. Chuck grassley of iowa said that the constitution has answered the question on. Who is the next president. So this is all despite the fact that it's remained virtually impossible for trump's legal challenges to overturn the election. Well what happens when the election results are presented to congress on january six which is part of the process that is normally a formality. Well that's going to be tricky. We've already heard from a small group of house. Republicans planning to raise these objections. This includes mo brooks during the joint session. And they'll need a senator to move forward with these objections in terms of having them her to be a long extended day though there's virtually no way to change the results senate. Republicans held a call yesterday. Leadership on down urge members not to delay this process not to take part in this and it seems to be largely the consensus for them. I talked to one of these members on the call west. Virginia shelley moore capito. Let's take a listen. I think that there was encouragement on the phone for us to accept the result. As much as it's not what we would have envisioned for the next four years and to try to do what's best for american people would just to look forward. She also told me there were no objections on the call to this plan but it remains to be seen if any break because again those objections won't go forward in terms of being heard of a senator doesn't sign on and in the midst of all this. It takes place the day after. Georgia hold its runoff elections to decide which party controls. The senate were. Turnout will be key. Despite all these claims by trump and others rejecting the elections results cloudy. I have to ask now that they are acknowledging. The results are there any republicans who also acknowledged the idea that it was a significant thing to stand by while the president tried to use nonexistent evidence to overturn democracy. They don't they've been asked about this repeatedly and have dodged the question or reject that claim and just very briefly. Congress is trying to get a relief. Bill corona virus relief. Bill done any chance of that soon. There's a chance they appear to be close house speaker. Nancy pelosi left the capital just.

"House Republicans say they would like to limit the power of the president to launch a war against Iran right. The House approved a war powers resolution. It demands that the President Consult Congress quote quote in every possible instance before using force against Iran. Democrats passed it with support from three house. Republicans Elissa Slatkin. A Democrat from Michigan. Introduced it if our loved ones are going to be sent to fight. In any protracted war the president does the American public a conversation. And we should say WanNa Slatkin's stepdaughters is an army officer. The White House criticized this resolution. So what would it actually do. NPR Congressional correspondent. Claudia Griselda is good morning. Good Morning Steve. What are the president? Congress fundamentally arguing about here this goes back to what is now an age-old argument for this administration and Congress is is the Constitution Congress argues that the constitution empowers them with declaring an act of war. The President says no I withhold that power as as a result of authorities that were given to the office after the nine eleven attack. that's So the president's the commander in chief. That's the longstanding conflict. You're the president gives orders orders to the armed forces but congress is supposed to be the one that declares war so now the house steps in with this resolution if it past does that mean the president would have to check in with Congress before doing anything against Iran according to the White House. No White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said yesterday that this quote was a ridiculous resolution solution just another political move because under well established Supreme Court precedent is non-binding and lacks the force of law so the resolution and also has language that the US has a right of self defense against Iran so the president should notify Congress under this resolution but under under certain scenarios he wouldn't have to would not have to do that So what were hearing here then is that this is I mean in some ways. Not that extreme right it saying if possible check with Congress notify Congress afterward if you have to act quickly and self defense yes some folks would argue that exactly. Trump also addressed the recent attack attack garnered him all these concerns in rally last night tied to the killing of this Iranian general. Let's take a listen. And we have Bernie and Nancy pillow. See we have a mall. They're all trying to say. How dare you take him out that way? You should get permission from Congress you should come in and tell us what you want. Democrats argue the resolution. They passed last. Night will have the force of law and since it falls under the War Powers Act. The also said said it doesn't require the president's signature but this has been approved in just one chamber so for now it doesn't have much impact other than sending a strong message to the president that must seek Congressional approval for military action against Iran War Powers Act. That's a law from the one thousand nine hundred ninety s that says Congress can weigh in and limit. The president's authority wants some kind. The military operation has begun but is the Senate likely to pass this at all. So the Senate Democrats think they have a shot. They need four Republicans to support them and so far to you have said they have signed on and senator. Tim Kaine of Virginia says he has the support he thinks he's very close. And two more members have expressed concerns tweets up to four or he he said even seven more Republican members who could support him. Claudia thanks so much thanks for having me.
