“These people that were being held were hostages. None of them had violated any real laws. In fact, some of them weren’t even charged. One of them was a reporter, the other one was a pastor. They had done nothing. And let me just say, Bob Levinson is still missing. The Iranians know where he is, or we believe they do, and they’re not being cooperative about that. We should not forget Mr. Levinson and his situation.”

“I’m glad they’re coming home, and by the way, the case of Bob Levinson remains unresolved. The Iranians, I believe, know where he is and they are not cooperating and it is an outrage. We need to continue to remember about him.”
