Congressional Democrats on Sunday expressed skepticism toward the evidence the Trump administration has cited to justify its killing of Iran’s top military commander — an explosive American military maneuver that inflamed regional tensions and heightened the potential for further conflict between Washington and Tehran…

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) of the Foreign Relations Committee agreed, telling CBS’ “Face the Nation” that it was “incumbent upon the administration to present that evidence to Congress.”

Even if proof of such a threat existed, however, Murphy charged that “the responsibility is on the administration to prove to us that by taking out the second most powerful political figure inside Iran, they are preventing more attacks rather than inspiring additional attacks.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” concluded: “We don’t know the reasons that it had to be done now. They don’t seem very clear.”
