Trump Defender Wildly Claims Dems Who Impeached Trump Don’t Deserve To Be Briefed On Iran
Matt Schlapp, a far-right activist and defender of Donald Trump, took to Twitter on Friday night to attack Democrats for impeaching the president.
Schlapp claimed that Democrats don’t deserve to be briefed on Iran strikes because they decided to impeach Trump.
“Dear Speaker Pelosi and Adam Schiff: if you think President Trump is a traitor and should be removed from office don’t be surprised if you find yourself cut out on military decisions. It’s why impeachment without crimes is so dangerous for our national security,” Schlapp tweeted.

There are a few things wrong with Schlapp’s tweet, one of them is that Trump did not inform Republicans about the airstrike either.
Twitter users were quick to call Schlapp out. Here are some of the best responses:
What about the other members of the Gang of 8? Why weren't they told?
Explain why people who pay to play at Mar-a-Loco were told before Congress was told.
Explain why our ALLIES weren't told, but our enemies were? https://t.co/P3QpwZszM4

What about impeachment with COUNTLESS crimes? What if there is OVERWHELMING evidence of those crimes in the public record? What if the crimes are so numerous and varied, it’s a sure bet that he will go down as the worst President in US history? What about that?

You're rationalizing Trump's (and your) impulse control disorder in order to feed Trump's ego.

The national interest remains the national interest, impeachment or no impeachment. Trump should act in the best interest of the country whatever the circumstances, and that means getting the best advice. He didn't even inform the GOP Senate Intel chair.

Dear Matt. Your guy is not above the law.

So what's the reason he didn't tell Republicans?
