Lieberman Calls Out Democrats for Opposing Soleimani Strike Only Because of ‘Partisanship’
LIEBERMAN: "I really think it is. It’s Donald Trump and the increasing partisanship of American Politics. You are absolutely right. For years in the face of Iranian aggression against us including all that they did training and equipping Iraqi militias which went back into Iraq and killed over 600 American soldiers by conclusion of our State Department — official count. People like Chuck Schumer, right across the bipartisan board supported economic sanctions. We didn’t want to go to war against Iran. Economic sanctions against him to squeeze Iran so that they would stop doing what they were doing. And why, why did this become a point of, the killing of Soleimani become a point of partisan disagreement? I think it’s got to be because we’re so partisan generally and because I think it’s got to be because we’re so partisan generally and because we’re at a point where whatever Donald Trump does, President Trump does, Democrats will oppose it. Frankly, whatever Donald Trump does, most Republicans will support."
