Pelosi Cries Trump Didn’t Notify Her Before Hit On Soleimani, Gets Reality Check

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is really upset President Donald Trump decided not to notify her prior to the death of General Qassem Soleimani. The 79-year-old Speaker said: “This action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.” She went on to complain Trump had “no right to take this action without consulting” with her first. Well, that’s when poor Pelosi got a huge reality check. You’ll love this.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reacted to the successful U.S. airstrike on Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Iraq on Thursday evening by whining that she and Congress were not consulted in advance about it.

In a statement released by the Speaker’s office on Thursday evening, Pelosi demanded an immediate briefing:

Tonight’s airstrike risks provoking further dangerous escalation of violence. America – and the world – cannot afford to have tensions escalate to the point of no return.

The Administration has conducted tonight’s strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against Iran. Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.

The full Congress must be immediately briefed on this serious situation and on the next steps under consideration by the Administration, including the significant escalation of the deployment of additional troops to the region.

Pelosi also made sure that her ire at Trump was made known: “Speaker Pelosi spox says she spoke to Secretary of Defense Mark Esper after the Soleimani strike as no advance notification was given as statement indicated. Pelosi + Esper connected last night via text phone around 9:40pm. Call lasted 13 mins,” tweeted Alex Moe, an NBC News producer.

Of course, the total irony here is Nancy Pelosi has yet to notify the Senate formally about the impeachment of President Donald Trump — 16 days ago.

But that’s not all. President Trump has no obligation to inform Congress before he orders a kill strike of a known terrorist. The idea of the president wasting time to inform the do-nothing Democrats and risking leaks makes Nancy Pelosi’s whining a really bad look.

Americans agreed. That’s why they gave ole Nancy a huge reality check.  

“She still hasn’t notified the Senate 16 days after impeachment, but she wanted to be notified before Trump took out an Iranian terrorist who killed hundreds of Americans,” tweeted Joel B. Pollack, Editor at Large at Breitbart News.

“Who would want to let do nothing Dems know. They would only leak the information and get Americans killed then try and blame Trump for the deaths. This is much safer,” tweeted Twitter user “Scott.”

“Well, now if you Deep State morons actually wanted to support President Trump and were actually trustworthy, maybe he would have. But look at yourselves…” tweeted “Jack.”

I wouldn’t tell any Democrats and very few Republicans of any pending military strikes. @realDonaldTrump knows, TRUST NO ONE,” tweeted “P Daniel.”

“The Dems surely would have LEAKED any knowledge of the attack to their Iranian allies, causing more American deaths. Then they would blame Trump for failure,” tweeted “#1 Trump Fan.”

“The leader of the attack on the embassy was Obama’s guest at the WH , Dems are allies of the Iranians ie…Huma Abedin, Valarie Jarrett,” tweeted “#1 Trump Fan.”

“Did Obama consult Congress before handing out billions of dollars to Iran?” tweeted Antonio A.E. Shapiro.

Congress must be notified if the president wants to take the country to war. All other military operations are at his discretion as America’s Commander in Chief. 

This strike was no different than the many Barack Obama carried out in the Middle East. The only difference is this terrorist, Soleimani, was Iran’s top general and considered “the queen” on playing cards our military carry with them to learn the faces of our top enemies.

That means the Quds Force General was one of our most wanted Middle Eastern bad guys. So, why in the hell would Trump need to hold up a time-sensitive military operation, plus risk a leak, by informing Nancy Pelosi?

Rep. Adam Schiff is also denouncing the kill-strike on Soleimani claiming it “emboldens” one of our biggest enemies, Iran. Does anyone in their right mind believe Iran would seriously attempt a hot war with America? If they did, it would be over in one week, and we wouldn’t even need to put boots on the ground.

The point is we must strike at the biggest terrorists like Soleimani, who we know has killed thousands of Americans. If we do not, then we really risk to “embolden” those nutjobs in the Middle East. Thank God President Trump sent a clear message: don’t screw with America, or you’ll end up dead.
