Defense Secretary Mark Esper explicitly said Sunday that he had seen no hard evidence that four American embassies had been under possible threat when President Donald Trump authorized the targeting of Iran’s top commander, raising questions about the scale of the threat described by Trump last week.
Nothing like keeping the Defense Secretary in the dark when attacking another country. I guess that explains why Congress didn’t even get the message through the “gang of 8”, who are the intelligence core and strictly bi-partisan.
This might make more sense:
“President Donald Trump openly discussed how the U.S. airstrike assassination of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani would shore up support from Republican Senate hawks in time for his impeachment trial, according to reports in both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.”
“Trump’s reported perspective on the impeachment implications of the controversial attack is one more aspect of a confusing jumble of reasons the White House has presented for the hit.”
If hustling to get an investigation in Ukraine to benefit his re-election didn’t fly, maybe he could kill someone to get a favorable jury in the Senate.
Is there no cap on this regime’s blatant attempts to circumvent the law?
