Lee emphasized to Martha MacCallum that he has supported President Donald Trump and said there may very well have been a legal rationale for the strike that killed top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, but he did not receive any satisfactory answers. “What I’m concerned about is that the flippant attitude that they reflected, both with regard to the underlying facts on Friday’s attack and especially as they relate moving forward to any subsequent attack that we might undertake on Iran,” he said. “There was a dismissive attitude, but one that was displayed in such a way that they resulted in them saying ‘We can’t identify what circumstances in which we would need to come back to Congress to get approval or authorization.’ That’s antithetical to the Constitution.” Hosts: Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola Cast: Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
