Manchin, a conservative Democrat, has been known to cross party lines.
But supporters of the resolution were unable to muster a two-thirds vote that would override an expected presidential veto.
Democratic Senator Tim Kaine, a lead sponsor of the resolution, disputed that.

Earlier in the day, Democrats defeated Sen.
"Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican from ME and a co-sponsor, called the resolution 'much-needed and long overdue, ' adding that over the past decade, 'Congress has too often abdicated its constitutional responsibility on authorizing the sustained use of military force". "They were both ideal, appropriate calls", he said. "When we are no longer here, he will only speak well of you.' Wrong!" "But if we're not even willing to have that discussion, we shouldn't be forcing people to risk their lives".

Trump said on February 13 that sometimes there are 25 people listening in on his calls, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "And I said: 'It wasn't for lack of trying.' Boom, it's over, let it go".
He said, "What message should we send to our regional allies and partners?"
Trump and the Justice Department say there was no communication.
"Well, then why are a good number of Republicans supporting it?"
In January, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi acknowledged Soleimani was a awful person, while stressing the importance of congressional debate over war powers.
