Cotton, Cruz, Graham, and Cheney Applaud Trump Administration for Increasing Pressure on Iran, Call for Rescinding Remaining Nuclear Waivers

Written by Press Release

January 23, 2020

Washington, D.C. – Senators Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), and Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) today released the following statement applauding the Trump administration’s recent pressure on Iran and calling for the remaining civil nuclear waivers to be rescinded:

“The catastrophic Obama-Iran nuclear deal was designed to allow Iran to cheat. Certain activities were all but undetectable by inspectors and the deal entangled the international community in Iran’s economy and civil nuclear program, with the aim of making it diplomatically impossible to hold the Ayatollahs accountable for whatever violations were discovered. The United States issued waivers allowing those activities, including civil-nuclear waivers.

“We now know from the Nuclear Archive seized by Israel that the regime never gave up its plans to create nuclear weapons. Man-made uranium particles were recently found at an undisclosed Iranian site according to the United Nations, and in recent weeks, Iran announced it will no longer adhere to any of the limits in the deal. In the coming days, the Trump administration will again have to make a decision whether or not to extend civil-nuclear waivers. We applaud President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and the Trump administration for the pressure they have imposed in response to past violations, and call on the administration to rescind the remaining waivers in light of Iranian officials’ definitive statements abandoning the deal. Enough is enough.”
