    Congressman John Rutherford slammed Democrat representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Pramila Jayapal as a “squad of Ayatollah sympathizers” on Wednesday, naturally leading to cries of racism.

    Rutherford was responding directly to false accusations by Jayapal (D-WA), co-chair of the Progressive Caucus, who said President Trump had “recklessly assassinated” Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani.

    Soleimani has been linked to the murder of well over 600 Americans.

    Trump “recklessly assassinated Qassem Soleimani” and “there was no raw evidence presented that there was an imminent threat,” Jayapal claimed, despite evidence of past and impending attacks having been planned by the Iranian general.

    “I was in the same briefing as you, @RepJayapal, and this is absolutely false,” Rutherford lashed out on social media.

    “You and your squad of Ayatollah sympathizers are spreading propaganda that divides our nation and strengthens our enemies.”
