The Trump administration spent days lying about what led up to the decision to assassinate Soleimani. They insist that there were intelligence reports of “imminent” attacks, which they are unwilling to share with anyone. As all of those rationales began to fall apart, the president told us that it doesn’t really matter.
The Fake News Media and their Democrat Partners are working hard to determine whether or not the future attack by terrorist Soleimani was “imminent” or not, & was my team in agreement. The answer to both is a strong YES., but it doesn’t really matter because of his horrible past!

In other words, as Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy claimed, the president is free to assassinate “bad people.”
