President Donald Trump assassinated top Iranian General Qasem Soleimani after reportedly being threatened by General Mark Milley and a group of Israel First GOP Senators who could have had him impeached.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley reportedly pressured Trump to sign off on the assassination by telling him “you will be held criminally negligible for the rest of your life if you don’t do this,” according to the new book “I Alone Can Fix It” by Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig.

Michael Bender’s new book, “Frankly, We Did Win This Election” backed up previous reporting that Trump carried out the hit to appease Israel First warhawks in the GOP who were threatening to have him impeached.

The New York Times reported last year that it was Senators Lindsey Graham and Tom Cotton who pressured Trump to carry out the assassination.
