Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the spread of anti-government protests in Iran:

"Hassan Rouhani can blame ‘foreign propaganda' until he's blue in the face, but the waves of protests filling the streets speak for themselves: The Iranian regime is hopelessly corrupt, and it is robbing the Iranian people blind to fund its terrorist escapades. The people are now speaking out, and the United States stands with them-as should our European allies."
