WASHINGTON (AP) – The Trump administration has made its case for killing a powerful Iranian general before legislators on Capitol Hill.

But Democrats say the classified briefing Wednesday was short on details and left them guessing about the president’s next steps in the Mideast.

Democrats say that by not disclosing many details of the threat that prompted the U.S. to kill Iran’s top general, President Donald Trump is asking the American public to trust the very intelligence reports he has often disparaged.

Trump administration officials stress that intelligence about imminent threats to Americans in the region justified the strike, but Democrats want more information.
