Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Wednesday attacked Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton's support of the Iran nuclear deal, calling it a "dangerous agreement" and saying that her role in the deal was "one of the many examples of her failed record as secretary of state."
"The Clinton-Obama Iran deal not only falls short of the administration’s own goals, it empowers the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism while never ultimately blocking Iran’s path to a nuclear weapon," Priebus said.
In a speech
at the Brookings Institution in Washington, Clinton said that she backed the "flawed" deal and that it must be strictly enforced.
She added that she would not hesitate to use military force should Tehran fail to live up to its word and try to develop a bomb.
The accord, which was reached in July, would provide Iran with as much in $150 billion that has been held up through years of crippling sanctions in exchange for curbs on its nuclear arsenal.
"Voters overwhelmingly oppose this deal, as does a bipartisan majority in Congress, because they know it will make the world less safe," Priebus said. "But with enough Democrat votes to protect the Clinton-Obama Iran deal and its secret side agreements, voters will have no choice but to hold Hillary Clinton accountable at the ballot box next year."
