GOP Senator Mike Lee Completely Erupts After ‘Insulting’ Iran Briefing

WOW.

Not everyone in the Republican Party is feeling the same way as it pertains to President Trump’s recent work in regard to Iran, despite the alleged coercion of the party to present a unified front.

The dissent boiled over on Wednesday, with Senator Mike Lee making his voice heard after a Senatorial briefing on the Iran matter ended.

Lee erupted on what he called an “insulting and demeaning” briefing that he deemed “probably the worst briefing at least on a military issue I’ve seen.”

He said the briefing was the deciding factor in him coming around to support the War Powers Act resolution being pushed by Democratic colleague Tim Kaine.

Lee, flanked by Rand Paul, said, “We were told over and over again it was this action was necessary, this was a bad guy, we had to do it,’ and we can’t have division, we can’t have dissension within our ranks, within our government, or it sends the wrong signal to the Iranians. And I just think that’s completely wrong.”

Lee was speaking about the assassination of Qasem Soleimani – an Iranian general fond of using terror tactics – who was killed just days ago by an American drone strike.

“I still haven’t had the questions answered that I came into that briefing expecting to ask. They left after 75 minutes. I understand these are busy people, they’ve got a lot of demands on their time. They are appearing before a coordinate branch of government… responsible for their funding, for their confirmation, for any approval of any military action they might undertake. They had to leave after 75 minutes while they were in the process of telling us that we need to be good little boys and girls and run along and not debate this in public. I find that absolutely insane.”

As of this writing, no other members of the GOP seem to be eliciting similar responses to Senator Lee’s.
