Pompeo: Iran Nuclear Deal Violates Federal Law
October 10, 2015
Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) issued the following statement in response to reports that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iranian nuclear agreement, violates federal law with regards to allowing foreign subsidies of U.S.-based companies to do business in Iran.
Pompeo stated, “The Iranian nuclear agreement is clearly bad for American security and the security of our allies. Now it is clear that the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, which the president himself signed into law just months ago, prohibits the relieving of sanctions that President Obama promised Ayatollah Khamenei he would lift. Ultimately the president’s own team will have to accept that the unsigned agreement violates U.S. law.
“We now know that not only does this deal give billions of dollars to the largest state sponsor of terrorism and contain secret side deals that govern verification, but it can’t even be implemented without breaking the law. For the president to even consider moving forward with this dangerous deal is wrong.”
