Rep. Cisneros joins 35+ members in letter to White House demanding answers on Iran strategy ahead of intelligence briefing

Representative Gilbert R. Cisneros, Jr. (CA-39) joined more than 35 of his colleagues to demand answers on the White House’s decision to carry out the airstrike against Qasem Soleimani and the national security strategy towards curbing Iran’s aggression and nuclear ambitions.

“For the past 17 years, Americans have shouldered the burden created by war in Iraq and subsequent conflict. The American people deserve to have leaders who are willing to have a serious discussion about the wisdom and costs of additional conflict. We urge you to engage in this discussion with us so that we can learn from the mistakes of the past and ensure our national security. As you send our nation’s sons and daughters far from home to secure our embassies and interests in the region, it is only right that you provide the American people with a detailed explanation of your strategy and goals,” the lawmakers wrote in the letter.

Signers of the letter include: Reps. Don Beyer, Tony Cardenas, Angie Craig, Jason Crow, Madeleine Dean, Diana DeGette, Suzan DelBene, Antonio Delgado, Ted Deutch, Ruben Gallego, Steven Horsford, Derek Kilmer, Andy Kim, Jim Langevin, Rick Larsen, Barbara Lee, Ted Lieu, Tom Malinowski, James P. McGovern, Jerry McNerney, Grace Meng, Joe Neguse, Ilhan Omar, Jimmy Panetta, Ed Perlmutter, Dean Phillips, Kathleen Rice, Max Rose, Adam Schiff, Adam Smith, Elissa Slotkin, Abigail Spanberger, Greg Stanton, Rashida Tlaib, Lori Trahan, and Marc Veasey.

  1. Representative Gilbert R. Cisneros, Jr. (CA-39) joined more than 35 of his colleagues to demand answers on the air strike…. Many people want answers as to why Rep Cisneros voted to IMPEACH President Trump when the President did NOT commit any crimes. Listen to the Democratic Party… they sound like they support the tyrannical Iranian regime!!!
