Kurginyan: Trump traded Soleimani’s life to escape from impeachment

24.07.2020, Moscow.

Seeking support from the neoconservative senators, US President Donald Trump agreed to murder Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said in “The Meaning of the Game” broadcast published on the movement’s YouTube channel on July 23.

“Power would seem to in the hands of Mr. Trump, who is not a neoconservative, and whose positions on a number of issues are fundamentally different than those of the neocons,” Kurginyan notes.

However, the political scientist believes, it is the support of neoconservative senators that helped Trump to avoid impeachment under abuse of power charges.

According to the analyst, the price for this support was Trump’s hard-line stance towards Iran, which resulted in the murder of Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force special operations unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, on January 3, 2020.

“Trump won 52 to 48 (in the Senate voting on impeachment ― Rossa Primavera News Agency). This only happened because he gave the neocons General Qasem Soleimani’s life,” Kurginyan said.

On February 5, 2020, a vote on impeachment against Donald Trump took place in the US Senate, which ended in favor of the current US president.
