via The Senate will challenge Trump’s ability to use nuclear weapons whenever he wants – AOL News

If President Donald Trump wants to fire any number of U.S. nuclear weapons at virtually any target on earth, nobody, not the Secretary of Defense, not Congress, and not even the nuclear launch officer underground in a silo pressing the button could stop him.

But on Tuesday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing over the president’s authority to order the use of nuclear weapons.

While the hearing nominally will look at the structure of nuclear command and control that has served all presidents, it’s headed by one of Trump’s most vocal critics in the ranks of Senate Republicans, Bob Corker.
