VIDEO: Barr Dismisses Claims Trump Didn’t Have Authority to Order the Soleimani Strike

Attorney General William Barr made a statement Monday backing President Trump’s authority to order the strike that killed Soleimani.

Barr also dismissed claims from some Democrats that Trump lacked the authority to order the strike by saying “I don’t think it was a close call.”

William Barr:
