Sanctions to Soleimani: the House Foreign Affairs Committee probes tensions with Iran

 

WASHINGTON — At a hearing Tuesday, the House Foreign Affairs Committee probed the recent tensions in Iran.

Witnesses questioned whether the targeted strike was in response to an “imminent” threat, as President Trump has asserted.

Notably absent was Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, whom Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY) said the Committee will further press for information regarding Maj. Gen. Soleimani’s death.
