GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said that neither she nor any other person in leadership was aware that a contractor was violating the U.S. sanctions against Iran when she was CEO of Hewlett-Packard.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Fiorina was asked about the issue by host Chris Wallace.

"In fact, the SEC investigation proved that neither I nor anyone else in management knew about it," Fiorina said. "When the company discovered this three years after I left, they cut off all ties. The SEC investigated very thoroughly and concluded that no one in management was aware."

Wallace noted that the company was making sales to Iran, and the subsidiary was named "wholesaler of the year."

Fiorina said HP was a large company and it was impossible to know everything going on within the company.

"The European subsidiary apparently was doing business with another company in the Middle East," she said. "That company was doing business with another company that was doing business was Iran. And when the company discovered this three years after I left, they cut off all ties with those companies."

"Clearly," she said, "that wholesaler of the year was not honest in their dealings with us."
