Rep. Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, said Sunday that the controversial Iran nuclear deal, which he supported, already is working.
In an appearance on "The Cats Roundtable"
on AM 970 in New York, Nadler pointed to Iran recently shipping 25,000 pounds of low-enriched uranium out of the country.
"This tripled the time it would take them to get a nuclear weapon," he told host John Catsimatidis. "They did this as part of the agreement, and thus far that’s a great accomplishment for the agreement."
Nadler, a supporter of Israel, drew heat for his support for the deal, but said Sunday Iran's recent activities show the need for the deal.
"This showed — the fact that they were dishonest, which is no great surprise — how important the agreement is to making sure that they don’t get a nuclear weapon," Nadler said.
