Warren did not go so far as to suggest that President Trump approved the strike to distract from the looming Senate impeachment trial, but she told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” that “people are reasonably asking about this timing.”

“The question we have to focus on is why now, why not a month ago, why not a month from now. The answer from the administration seems to be they can’t keep their stories straight,” Warren said.

She added that the administration acted similarly last summer when questions emerged over Trump’s communication with Ukraine and the holdup of foreign aid to the country.
