It’s crunch time for Democratic presidential candidates. With 2020 finally here, those who are actually serious about being in the White House — and not just running for a chance to get a cabinet position — have to put up or shut up. For the record, we really wish some of them would do more of the latter…
During a recent interview, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren suggested that President Donald Trump only green-lit the drone strike that killed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani to distract the public from his impending impeachment trial.
Of course, accusations like this are pretty typical for political partisans. What Warren didn’t mention is that U.S. intelligence agencies have classified Soleimani as a terror operative for a long time, and determined that he was in fact planning attacks to undercut American interests in the Middle East. On top of that, this is also the same person who helped Iran posture against the United States and its allies for years. President Trump was wise to not simply let that go.
Get used to more comments like this — and not just from Democratic presidential candidates. As the general election draws closer, and the case for impeachment becomes less and less relevant, these people are going to show all of us how desperate they really are.
