Donald Trump Authorized Qasem Soleimani’s Assassination Last Summer

There was never any “imminent threat” to the United States. Soleimani was in Iraq on a diplomatic mission to reduce tensions with Saudi Arabia. There was nothing out of the ordinary about his schedule when Trump killed him with a Reaper drone.

Trump assassinated Soleimani to appease the neocons in the Senate, Netanyahu and his Jewish donors who have been pushing for a war with Iran. He was convinced that he could spin it as taking out an “evil terrorist” and that he would be praised for it like after the first Syria strike.

NBC News:

“WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump authorized the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani seven months ago if Iran’s increased aggression resulted in the death of an American, according to five current and former senior administration officials.

The presidential directive in June came with the condition that Trump would have final signoff on any specific operation to kill Soleimani, officials said.

That decision explains why assassinating Soleimani was on the menu of options that the military presented to Trump two weeks ago for responding to an attack by Iranian proxies in Iraq, in which a U.S. contractor was killed and four U.S. service members were wounded, the officials said. …

After Iran shot down a U.S. drone in June, John Bolton, Trump’s national security adviser at the time, urged Trump to retaliate by signing off on an operation to kill Soleimani, officials said. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also wanted Trump to authorize the assassination, officials said. “

The reason that Trump said that Soleimani was preparing an “imminent” attack on four American embassies was because he needed a flimsy legal rationale to justify killing him as self-defense. This had been on his agenda though as far back as 2017. While there was no “imminent” threat from Iran (the attack on the U.S. military bases in Iraq is proof Iran didn’t want to escalate into a war with the United States), Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate is imminent and he needed the support of Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and Tom Cotton to be acquitted.

  1. Soleimani was no terrorist and, in fact, had worked with the US in both Afghanistan and Iraq. He was on a diplomatic mission to reduce Iran-Saudi tensions when he was killed. To murder this foreign government official in order to please jews and their warmonger toadies in Congress is a step too far. Is this not illegal? Trump should be impeached and removed.

      Yes, Trump is now guilty of impeachable offenses, namely committing an act of war/military aggression and doing so without congressional authorization. Needless to say no articles of impeachment will be brought against him for these genuine offenses, only the imaginary ones.

    • The word “terrorist” is such an Orwellian term, it used to mean someone who attacked innocent people to achieve political goals, now it means anyone who is capable of fighting the Rothschild/Bolshevik/Satano/Pedo/Banking cabal

    • It would be illegal and an act of terrorism if any other country in the world had done the same thing. However, it is perfectly fine when ZOG-merika does it.

  2. So if Blompf authorized the ‘hit’ on General Soleimani last summer that would precede him being impeached in December. Thereby, the BS story being trotted out that Blompf ‘pulled the trigger ‘ on Soleimani’s cowardly assassination to guarantee the support of senators Graham, Cotton, and Rubio doesn’t hold no water, unless the Likud 3 gave the king of the jews an offer he couldn’t refuse.

    It would be nice to believe that ghosts exist, and that General Soleimani’s is haunting Blompf, Netanyahu, and all the other enemies of his people.
