Conservative Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) blasted the Trump administration on Wednesday for their "unconstitutional" briefing on why President Donald Trump assassinated Iranian General Qassim Suleimani.
CBS News reporter Kathryn Watson described Lee as "ANGRY."
"It's un-American, it's unconstitutional, and it's wrong," Lee said.
He will now support a vote on the war pushed by Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA).
