The Trump administration finally issues its formal justification for the assassination of Iranian General Qassim Soleimani, and no mention is made of an imminent attack

Dershowitz argues that Trump can’t be found guilty so long as he felt his actions, regardless of how self-serving they may have been, were also in “the public interest”
