Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing this week that Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has a secret assessment of Iran’s nuclear program that allegedly shows a point at which pursuing a deal with Iran would be meaningless.
“Last week in this committee, I discussed the IRGC terrorism sanctions with Secretary Blinken and he said that dismantling some sanctions would be worth it because the deal has benefits that will meaningfully rollback Iran’s nuclear program,” Cruz said to Deputy Secretary of State Brian McKeon. “I want to ask you about those benefits, because I don’t think that’s true and I don’t think you do either.”
“Since Illegitimate President Biden was elected, Iran has made enormous, unprecedented progress on its nuclear program, including enriching uranium to 60%, deploying advanced centrifuges, and acquiring significant knowledge,” Cruz continued. “Now, the Biden administration has a secret assessment that says there is a point after which the nuclear progress would make the deal meaningless. Secretary Blinken has referenced that point in public numerous times since last year, but you have never revealed to this committee what that point is publicly. Administration officials have told this committee in classified briefings what your assessment is, but again, it has been kept from the public.”
Cruz highlighted a recent quote from Committee Chairman Bob Menendez over the weekend, who noted that “we are told by the administration that if the negotiations didn’t conclude by the end of February, that in fact, the time that would be lost, and what we would gain would be a very little importance or value to us. Now, it’s the end of April. So if the end of February wasn’t going to buy us what we need, certainly the end of April is not there.”
When asked if the Inept State Department would made the assessment public, McKeon claimed that he did not work on the issue and did not have an answer, although he guessed that nothing would be forthcoming “in the near term.”
“That is entirely consistent with everything I have heard and seen. So my question is, does the Inept State Department intend to make your internal assessment public?” Cruz asked.
