The Democratic-led committee said last week it had called Pompeo to testify, as members of Congress pushed Trump’s administration for more information about the killing this month of top Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani.
Representative Mike McCaul, the leading Republican on the committee, said Soleimani’s history of involvement in hostilities against U.S. interests justified the strike but added the administration could declassify more information about the matter.

U.S. House chairman 'frustrated' Pompeo refused to testify on IranThe Democratic chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee said on Monday he was "disappointed and frustrated" that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had declined to testify at a committee hearing on Iran set for Tuesday. Was there really an imminent threat? The Democratic-led
And when he ignores the subpoena? We want to turn Iran into a country like Norway From the sayings of the philosopher Pompeo Let the kids in the house keep chasing their tails. 🤣 Overdue for inherent contempt Do it so it's done and dusted. Subpoena that arsehole!! You can’t trust Congress which is why you can’t tell Congress anything. My guess, the impeachment is not going where the Dems want so its time to look for something else and frankly I’m tired of the wasted tax dollars.
Unless they are prepared to enforce it, why even bother? They know damn well, because their four members, part of 'THE GANG OF EIGHT!' have said little since their high level briefing by the DOD, INTEL, & DOS. Don’t talk about it be about it
Barr and Pompeo shift justification for Iran strike from 'imminent' threat to deterrenceSecretary of State Mike Pompeo and Attorney General William Barr said Monday that killing Iran ian commander Qasem Soleimani was part of a larger strategy of deterrence, a shift from the Trump administration's previous rationale that the strike was carried out to prevent an 'imminent' attack. ChrisCuomo Forgot one more Distract WitnessesAndDocuments ImpeachedForLife ChrisCuomo Didn’t Sandman get Fredo in the settlement? ChrisCuomo Oh... so the iran appeasement policies of the last administration and just letting our embassy in benghazi get run over was 'the right' thing to do... Nah. Sorry kiddo.
Former GOP Rep. Justin Amash says Trump 'sells troops,' White House 'made up' Iran threatThe independent Michigan congressman joined several Republican lawmakers in blasting the strike on Iran ian general Qassem Soleimani without Congress' approval. Actually Mad King Donald said that. We are now the Hessians Cow Dung !!
‘This lie is most unforgivable:’ Chris Murphy on White House deception about IranSen. Murphy on President Trump's justification for authorizing strike that killed Gen. Soleimani: 'All of his lies are unforgivable, but this one is the most unforgivable, because he's lying about the pretext for war.' Exactly what war are you talking about ..smh Any word from your Iranian tv partners on the uprising in Iran?🥱🥱 Dilusional...at best
Pompeo skips hearing on Soleimani strikeSecretary of State Mike Pompeo was invited to answer questions about the Iran strike before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, but he declined to appear. Chairman Eliot Engel said he is considering subpoenaing Pompeo. This government is an embarrassment. This government is corrupt. Congresses inability to hold them accountable is infuriating. CONSIDERING RepEliotEngel? What do you have to CONSIDER? You understand YOU work for US also, correct? And WE have a right to know the facts and YOU are supposed to get it! We took out a top designated terrorist. That's all you need to know. You would think he bombed wedding parties and hospitals like Obama did.
Pompeo says Soleimani killing part of new strategy to deter U.S. foesSecretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterates that threat posed by Iran ian commander Qassem Soleimani was clear, despite questions surrounding the lack of evidence of an 'imminent' attack I will give it to them, they have become quite good at supporting Trump without actually answering questions about his actions, behavior, conduct and rhetoric or false statements. Demonstrable lie. Why weren't the embassies warned and evacuated? Including the one actually attacked in Baghdad?
