A memo from the Donald Trump administration about the U.S. targeted assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani last month does not refer to an “imminent threat,” which was President Trump’s justification for the attack.

House Foreign Affairs Chair Eliot Engel said the report “shows that the justification the president offered to the American people was false, plain and simple.”

The memo was released the day after the Senate voted to pass a resolution limiting Donald Trump’s authority to attack Iran without congressional approval.
