Cotton, Pompeo Call on Moniz to Clarify His Knowledge of Secret Side Deals

July 28, 2015
Washington, D.C.— Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas) today sent a letter to Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, calling on Moniz to clarify his level of knowledge on the contents of the two secret side agreements made between the IAEA and Iran to the Iranian nuclear deal, which the two Republican lawmakers learned of while meeting with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna.  
At a briefing last week on the Iranian nuclear deal, Moniz did not indicate whether or not he had read these side agreements; however, new reports have since been released stating that Moniz had, in fact, read the secret documents.
