VIDEO: Schiff Says He Has “Yet to Get an Adequate Answer” to Why U.S. Killed Soleimani

Speaking to Manu Raju of CNN, House Intel Chair Adam Schiff said he’s not satisfied on why President Trump chose to kill Iranian general Soleimani

Adam Schiff:

Soleimani has been a risk to the United States for a long time. Soleimani has been engaged in deadly and malevolent action throughout the region for a long time.

The question is why the administration chose this moment when other administrations, both parties, decided that would escalate the risks, not reduce them.

I’ve yet to get an adequate answer to that question.


Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said Iran’s top military leader Qasem Soleimani was actively plotting in the Middle East and that “President Trump’s decision to remove Qasem Soleimani from the battlefield saved American lives.”
