Senator Johnson Responds to False Political Attacks

Washington – Senator Johnson made the following remarks about issues arising from President Obama’s flawed negotiations with Iran:

"The headlines accusing me of saying I trust the ayatollah in Iran are false. Simply reading my actual words in the stories below those headlines shows this. And let me say for the record, I certainly do not trust the ayatollah.  I want to trust our president on this subject. The fact remains that he needs to be more forthcoming on his negotiations and he needs to involve Congress fully in developing the agreement. The real question is why President Obama does not trust the people’s chosen representatives with a simple up-or-down vote of approval and why the president believes he can trust the Iranian regime to comply with any agreement."
