On Friday, Trump claimed that a senior Iranian general killed by a U.S. drone strike had been planning attacks on four U.S. embassies, a claim made to justify the decision but that was at odds with intelligence assessments from senior officials in Trump’s administration.
In an interview with Fox News’s Laura Ingraham, excerpts of which were released Friday afternoon, Trump expanded on comments from a day earlier, when he initially told reporters that Soleimani’s forces “were looking to blow up our embassy” in Baghdad. He later said at a rally in Toledo that “Soleimani was actively planning new attacks, and he was looking very seriously at our embassies, and not just the embassy in Baghdad.”
“Did [Soleimani] have large-scale attacks planned for other embassies?” Ingraham asked. “And if those were planned, why can’t we reveal that to the American people? Wouldn’t that help your case?”
“I can reveal that I believe it probably would’ve been four embassies,” Trump said.The Washington Post:
And no interview on State Run Media can be complete without bringing up the biggest hook, witch hunt, PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT, impeachment.
Is Laura Ingraham a white supremacist?
Plenty of information out there that backs this claim.
