Rubio, who is running for president, and Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), a vulnerable lawmaker heading into 2016, sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday asking the administration to release letters sent to the British, Chinese, French and German governments that “appear to reassure these foreign governments that their companies may not be impacted if sanctions are re-imposed in response to Iranian violations of the agreement.”
“While Administration officials have claimed that this is not the case, we think it is important for the American public to be able to read your assurances to foreign governments for themselves as their elected representatives review this deal in the coming weeks,” the senators said in the letter.
