CNN reports McConnell walked Trump through the trial format. Democrats say it is an unfair comparison because during the Clinton trial, the Senate was considering re-calling witnesses who had already testified before the House. Mrs Pelosi said in a letter to fellow Democrats on Tuesday that she would not send the articles of impeachment across the Congress building until Republicans "immediately" publish their proposed rules so "we can see the arena in which we will be participating".
Kuwait International Airport houses the US military's largest air logistics center in the Middle East. Kuwait, denying on Sunday that the USA drone that killed Soleimani originated from its territory, demanded stability in the region and maintains formal relations with Iran.
Iran's attack was in response to a USA airstrike killing Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani . "The real question now is what Trump is going to do", he said . "U.S. early warning systems detected the incoming ballistic missiles well in advance, providing USA and Coalition forces adequate time to take appropriate force protection measures", added a US defense department official.
Questions about whether the US would exit Iraq swirled on Monday after a letter surfaced that purportedly told military officials in Baghdad that American forces were repositioning in advance of a departure. They could include maintaining a low-profile U.S. Special Forces presence to conduct raids against the Islamic State and redefining the U.S. mission as one of providing advice and training to Iraqi forces.
The actions followed months of tension that has increased steadily since Trump pulled the United States out of Iran's nuclear pact with world powers in 2018 and reimposed sanctions that have driven down Tehran's oil exports and hammered its economy.
Iran said that the missile attack was carried out in retaliation for the killing of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani on January 3 via a drone strike, which US President Donald Trump had ordered. New Zealanders who travel to Europe with Middle Eastern carriers will continue to fly over Iraq and Iran, despite many other carriers avoiding the region.
