Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, announced that on Wednesday, September 9, the Committee will convene a hearing to examine the Iran nuclear agreement.  The hearing, entitled “Implications of a Nuclear Agreement with Iran (Part IV),” will begin at 10 a.m.
The hearing will be the latest in a series of Committee hearings to examine the Obama Administration’s nuclear deal with Iran.  The hearings are part of the 60-day Congressional review period.
Chairman Royce said: “This agreement is fatally flawed. The Obama Administration has committed to providing Iran permanent sanctions relief from the U.S. in return for temporary and inadequate constraints on Iran’s nuclear program. It will permit Iran to launch an industrial-scale nuclear program after 10 years, continue to block international inspectors from its secret nuclear facilities, hide its past work on a nuclear weapon, and emerge with its record wiped clean. This hearing is part of a series to examine the nuclear agreement and discuss ways to lessen the fallout from this bad deal.”
