After Attack, George Conway Says Trump Started a War Because of Impeachment

Following the United States’ military operation that killed Qasem Soleimani, Iraq vowed to respond with violence. Tonight the country made good on its promise by firing at least 12 ballistic missiles at 2 different American bases.

The Trump administration has claimed that the killing of Soleimani was due to the Iranian general posing a threat to American safety. Comments on Tuesday by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made it seem that a threat was not all that imminent. And following the strike on American bases, lawyer and frequent Trump critic George Conway opined that a war may be starting because Trump was impeached.

The husband of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway tweeted, “It’s extremely difficult now to escape the conclusion that Donald Trump started a war because he was impeached.”

Conway continued, “I’d be perfectly happy to be wrong about this, but the evidence is hard to ignore. He let all sorts of transgressions by the Iranians go previously, and is perfectly happy to kowtow to evil foreign leaders (KJU, Putin), but suddenly, he chooses the option that the military thought too extreme to actually select, and then threatens to commit war crimes.”

He then tweeted the question, “what’s different now,” with a picture of the articles of impeachment.

Following the attack on the bases, the lawyer tweeted, “We have an incompetent buffoon in the White House who has no idea—zero—what he’s doing.”

Trump was initially slated to speak to the public about the events of the day, but the White House recently said that will not happen.
