The AP reports that House Democrats are expected to receive a briefing on the Iran crisis from former CIA Director John Brennan this Tuesday.
Brennan, who is a vociferous critic of President Donald Trump, will meet with Democrats at a private weekly caucus meeting to discuss Iran.
This briefing will coincide with another meeting that the Trump administration is conducting with lawmakers the same day. Democratic lawmakers are expected to be in attendance at both sessions.
LCN reported on the Trump administration’s recent moves to send an aircraft carrier and other military assets to the Persian Gulf region. The Trump administration also floated the idea of deploying 120,000 troops to the region.
By sending military resources to the Persian Gulf, the Trump administration has raised speculation of a potential hot conflict with Iran.
Trump has downplayed the possibility of a conflict, but there are still questions in need of answers. The cause for this course of action has had lawmakers demand to know more about what has transpired in Iran.
Trump and Brennan have come to blows about the special counsel’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Since stepping down from the CIA position in 2017, Brennan has been an unrelenting opponent of President Donald Trump.
President Trump revoked the former CIA chief’s security credentials after Brennan criticized Trump’s interactions with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a political summit in 2018.
Despite campaigning on an America First platform, President Trump has been undermined by neoconservatives in his administration. Defense interests remain strong and will do what they can to roadblock Trump’s restrained foreign policy agenda.
The nation waits tensely to see if the Trump administration will eventually escalate tensions with Iran.

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?
Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.
“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,” the politician stated
Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.
“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.
The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.
It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.
Salvini has every reason to be concerned.
If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
