On Episode 7 of War Room: Impeachment, hosts Stephen K. Bannon and Raheem Kassam analyze how the recent death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi relates to the impeachment inquiry.
Bannon contends “This ties into Syria. This ties into turkey. This ties into all of the controversy over the last month about the America-first strategy in the Middle East.”
Relating it to this week’s testimony, he continues: “You’ve had political appointees or career diplomats testifying and you’re getting the perspective of the official apparatus and this is in conflict with what President Trump is trying to do with regards to America first national security policy and foreign policy. Here today, you’re seeing the merging together of both those elements: the big controversy about Syria and the Kurds.”
Kassam adds: “A lot of this comes down to whether the president is acting “appropriately” on the world stage. That’s why the Washington D.C. bubble, the Brookings Institute, and all these historic think tanks get their heads blown up over Trump’s withdrawal from Syria because they want to draw this all together and say he’s not fit for office and not comporting himself with the policies and mannerisms that have been established for 20, 30, 40 years.”
In other words, it’s “a fundamental policy difference they’re trying to turn into an impeachable offense.”
