244

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04) released the following statement in response to the U.S. military strike that killed Qassem Soleimani:

“Qassem Soleimani was a terrorist and murderer responsible for the slaughter of thousands, including hundreds of Americans. Because of the decisive action last night, no one else will die by his hand, and our nation, our citizens and our allies are safer because of it. As Congress prepares to reconvene, it is important we are united in our resolve against further Iranian aggression and retaliation. At the same time, all of us should pray and work for de-escalation of this situation.”
