BREAKING: Schiff Calls for Open Hearings on Trump’s Iran Strike, Says “We May be at War with Iran”

House Intel Chair Adam Schiff told the Washington Post Monday that  he wants open hearings on President Trump’s actions in Iran.

Sunday, President Trump tweeted “These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner. Such legal notice is not required, but is given nevertheless!”

Monday morning, Trump followed up in all caps “IRAN WILL NEVER HAVE A NUCLEAR WEAPON!”

The Hill reports House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said he supports open House hearings regarding President Trump’s order last week for a strike that killed top Iranian commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

Schiff, who is among lawmakers who were briefed a day after last week’s attack, told The Washington Post there should be open hearings on the administration’s decision to strike.

“The president has put us on a path where we may be at war with Iran. That requires the Congress to fully engage,” Schiff told the Post in an interview published Monday.

Schiff said there’s “absolutely no way” Trump’s threat to retaliate with “disproportionate” attacks, should Iran strike the U.S., reflects Pentagon planning.

“None of that could come out of the Pentagon,” Schiff said.

A Pentagon spokesperson was not immediately available for comment when contacted by The Hill.

Trump said there are 52 Iranian sites, including cultural sites, that “will be hit very fast and very hard” if Iran strikes an American or an American base. He later said that his “Media Posts,” seemingly referring to his tweets, will serve to notify members of Congress on potential strikes.
