So much wrong with this story... 5 months ago Trump was stupid for cooking Sulemani...

"critics on capital hill, asking if the United States carried out the assaination, without authorization from congress, potentially bringing this country to the brink of an all out war."

I wonder what the Russians would do in response to us killing one of their GRU guys? Probably nothing if Ol' Biden was in charge!!

I don't get the outrage. Is there really a difference between supplying arms/training/advising and paying bounties? Both are designed to help your proxy fight your common enemy. It's not like this is anything new. Everyone, including the US, does it.

What's the big "gotcha" here? What am I missing?

I believe the story is made up, so that the media can then claim Trump knows nothing about it. That way it plays into the MSM narrative that Trump is not fit to be POTUS.

I'm not commenting on whether or not Russia is, or isn't doing it. I'm just commenting on the panic-porn story that the MSM is pushing.

Whatever he does, he better get approval from Congress first. If not, that would be another travesty!

I see people having full blown meltdowns over this, the same people that don't want you to own a gun, want to defund or abolish the police, know that America is systemically racist...

dragging Gold Star families into this, the already liberal / leftist leaning families anyway. There really is no out of bounds anymore.
