Dozens Of House Dems Urge Biden To Cede Nuclear Weapons Authority, Share With Kamala

Start

Nearly three dozen House Democrats signed a letter calling for President Biden to relinquish his control over nuclear weapons.

“Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks,” states the 2-page letter from an effort fronted by Rep. Jimmy Panetta and Rep. Ted Lieu.

“Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment,” the letter adds.

Hinting at potentially sharing the power with Kamala Harris or Nancy Pelosi, Politico summarizes: “they offer a number of alternatives, including requiring other officials in the line of succession, such as the vice president and the speaker of the House – neither of whom can be removed by the president if they disagree – to concur with a launch order.”
