The president said last week that there was an attempt to blow up the USA embassy in Baghdad.

"There's no other way for them to get the money they need", he said on Fox.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, a California Democrat and member of the Gang of Eight, said on Sunday that the group was not informed about possible attacks on four embassies. Iran responded by firing more than a dozen ballistic missiles at two bases in Iraq hosting United States and Iraqi military personnel. And then all of a sudden he was gone. Secretary Mike Pompeo defended this claim later in the day, saying, "We had specific information about an upcoming threat and these threats included attacks on USA embassies, period". A high-level intelligence briefing for the senior congressional leaders known as the Gang of Eight took place four days afterward, followed by a closed-door session for all of Congress that left many lawmakers protesting. When asked if Trump can do anything to aid the demonstrators, Esper referred to Trump's tweet of support, saying "I'm told that's the world record for number of likes on social media for a Farsi-language tweet". But I will tell you, I spoke to one of the briefers.

Democratic Senator Chris Coons of DE, member of the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee, said he was anxious: "Iran has many ways in which they can take action against us, both openly and hiddenly, and I don't think they did it to take revenge".

In an interview with CBS's "Face the Nation" just before the tweet, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Trump was still willing to hold talks with Iran's leaders. Why was there a difference? "As soon as it looked like there was going to be some sort of action against a U.S. Embassy, the president was decisive and bold in his action", including dispatching additional troops to the region. "I shared that view". "I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies".

But the president, he added decisively, did not quote "certain evidence".

The league also is investigating whether the Astros might have engaged in similar behavior over the 2018 and 2019 seasons. Astros owner Jim Crane later fired both Luhnow and Hinch, saying "We will not have this happen again on my watch".

"The president didn't cite a specific piece of evidence", Reuters quoted Esper as saying. And in response to a question about whether Trump was "embellishing" the threat, Esper said, "I don't believe so". What I'm saying is I share the president's view that probably- my expectation was they were going to go after our embassies. The embassy is the most prominent display of American presence in a country'.

Yashar Ali, one of Twitter's most beloved users, called out some of President Donald Trump's opponents in a viral Twitter thread early Sunday.

While Esper said he agreed with Trump that additional attacks against U.S. embassies were likely, he said on CBS's "Face the Nation" that Trump's remarks to Fox News were not based on specific evidence on an attack on four embassies.

BRENNAN: Is that threat gone?

US Secretary of Defence Mark Esper appeared to mix up his own position on why the US made the decision to kill Gen. Qasem Soleimani, giving CNN and CBS two conflicting accounts on the matter. That was a full 20 percentage points higher than when Americans were asked about Iran tensions in May of a year ago.

ESPER: That threat has been disrupted.
