WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released a statement Tuesday after the White House announced that the United States would withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPA):

“The nuclear deal with Iran, the world’s largest state-sponsor of terror, was misguided from the start. Leading up to, and following its enactment there have been serious concerns regarding its enforcement, stipulations and side-deals. The deal does not prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. It does not allow ‘anywhere, anytime, 24/7 access’ inspections. It does not stop Iran’s pursuit of intercontinental ballistic missiles. As the world largest-state sponsor of terror, Iran received an infusion of cash to support more of its terror activities around the world. This bad deal was rammed through despite the bipartisan objection of Congress and overwhelming majority of the American people.”
