Congressman Turner released the following statement after the House voted on a series of measures on the nuclear deal with Iran.
In a House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee hearing, Congressman Turner questioned Lt. Gen Frank Klotz, Energy Under Secretary for Nuclear Security on the secret side deals involved in the nuclear agreement.
“I continue to oppose the nuclear deal with Iran and I am perplexed as to how any Member of Congress can vote in good faith knowing there are secret side agreements to this deal. The President is seeking approval of a deal that largely remains hidden from the public.
“Iran’s previous actions towards the global community are reason enough to not trust this deal. It is not in the best interest for Middle East regional stability or our own national security. I believe that we must demand a better deal and we must push to retain sanctions against the world’s largest state sponsor of terror.”
