KW: The #Trump lie about intelligence for the #Soleimani hit has now completely disintegrated. Esper admits he never saw intelligence show a threat to U.S. Embassies, but “shared the president’s view that probably…they were going to go after our embassies.” https://cbsn.ws/2FH3XVN
Esper says he “didn’t see” specific evidence showing Iranian threat to 4 U.S. embassies
The defense secretary told “Face the Nation” he “didn’t see” specific evidence showing four embassies were going to be attacked. cbsnews.com
Let’s be clear – if there was evidence of imminent attacks on four embassies, the Administration would have said so at our Wednesday briefing. They didn’t.
So either Fox News gets higher level briefings than Congress…
or…wait for it…
there was no such imminent threat.
President Donald Trump warned that Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani was planning “imminent” attacks against Americans, but his own defense secretary seems to be unable to back this claim.
