Press Release

Washington, DC - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, today questioned former Obama administration official Jake Sullivan on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran Nuclear Deal, during a committee hearing titled, “Confronting the Full Range of Iranian Threats.” 

During the first clip, which you can view below or here, the Congressman questioned Mr. Sullivan on the JCPOA  and the verification agreement. The Congressman discusses how the agreement is supposedly built on verification, not trust, but no one knows the verification regime. 

In the second clip, which you can view below or here, the Congressman discusses how the deal props up the wrong regime with a jackpot of up to $150 billion of sanctions relief.

Yesterday, Congressman Zeldin released a statement urging President Donald Trump to not recertify the JCPOA. The next certification is due to Congress this week, on October 15th. You can read the release here.
