Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on the Secret Iran Deal Documents

July 18, 2016
Press Release

“The document made public today only confirms what we’ve suspected all along: baked into the Iran deal is a fast-track to a nuclear weapon if the Iranian regime patiently waits us out.

“This administration misled the American public to seal a legacy-making deal. The Deputy National Security Advisory already bragged about misguiding unsuspecting reporters covering the deal; today, we’re learning why he had to do that.

“For the next 10 years, Iran can spend $150 billion however it likes and exit the deal just months away from a nuclear weapon. It’s difficult to renege on major treaties negotiated under a previous administration, but the next administration must think long and hard about how to unwind this disaster.”

-- Congressman Dan Donovan serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. He chairs the House Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Communications.
