RJC Statement on Secret Exemptions in the Iran Nuclear Deal

Washington, D.C. (September 1, 2016) – The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement in response to a new report detailing secret exemptions in the Iran nuclear deal. These secret exemptions allow Iran to evade various restrictions, including restrictions on their enriched uranium levels.

"This latest report further confirms that the Obama Administration has consistently misled the American people on the Iran nuclear deal. First we learned about a secret side deal that allows Iran to upgrade its centrifuges, then it was the secret $400 million ransom payment, and now these secret exemptions that allow Iran to evade restrictions on their nuclear capabilities. Simply put, President Obama and his fellow Democrats have never been straightforward with the American people about Iran. It’s clear this is a dangerous and reckless deal with the largest state sponsor of terrorism, and no one who is serious about our national security could support it." – Matt Brooks, RJC Executive Director
