Trump on War Powers Measure: Dems Would Have Leaked Soleimani Plans

(C-SPAN)

By    |   Thursday, 09 January 2020 07:58 PM

At a campaign rally in Toledo, Ohio, on Thursday night, President Donald Trump wasted little time before deriding Democrats' nonbinding War Powers Resolution, which passed earlier in the day, largely along party lines, in a rebuke to the the president over an airstrike last week that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.

The strike triggered a retaliatory missile strike by Iran against Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops, and has roiled the overall picture in the Middle East.

According to Fox News, Trump suggested Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., would have tipped off the media about the operation, which he has maintained headed off aggression against U.S. interests and a plot to  blow up America's embassy in Baghdad, Iraq.

"They're saying, 'You should get permission from Congress, you should come in and tell us what you want to do – you should come in and tell us, so that we can call up the fake news that's back there, and we can leak it,'" Trump said.

"That's a lot of corruption back there, folks."
