“Qasem Soleimani was unquestionably an evil man with the blood of countless American servicemembers and innocent civilians on his hands. It’s imperative that the Administration brief Congress on the intelligence that they’ve described as ‘an imminent threat’ to warrant a strike of this magnitude.

“Neither I nor the American people want war with Iran. The Administration’s unilateral decision to escalate conflict with Iran without a cohesive security strategy for the region puts American lives at greater risk – especially our servicemembers and diplomats in the Middle East. The public deserves to know precisely how we’ve come to the brink of armed conflict, and why, if at all, last night’s decision was necessary for our national security.”
