Former Clinton Advisor Supports New Iran Sanctions

In an appearance on CNN Friday, former Clinton advisor Jake Sullivan said he supported the Trump administration’s sanctions on Iran.

“When the Iranians tested ballistic missiles in the Obama administration, the Obama administration imposed sanctions, so this is consistent with steps that have been taken in the past,” Sullivan said.

Sullivan denied that Iran’s test constituted a violation of the Iran nuclear deal, but confirmed to host Wolf Blitzer that it was a violation of international law.

“The United Nations Security Council continues to prohibit Iran from taking these kinds of steps, testing ballistic missiles,” Sullivan said.
