Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest's response to Kevin Corke's question during the White House press briefing earlier today:

"Spin has its limits. What even the White House Press Secretary cannot deny is that senior administration officials have peddled a falsehood about the Iran deal. The only question is whether that falsehood was the administration's entire rationale for the Iran deal or one staffer's grandiose claim that he manufactured that rationale out of whole cloth to manipulate the press and the American people."
