Ted Cruz Initiates Tense Exchanges With Top Obama Admin Officials on Iran: ‘Don’t Distort My Words’

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) confronted Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz during a Wednesday Senate committee hearing on the Iran nuclear deal, resulting in some tense moments. Cruz claimed Kerry said “we should apologize” to the service members killed by Iranian commander Qassim Suleimani, a key figure discussed during the Iran deal. The secretary of state first confirmed they would not be lifting sanctions against Suleimani in the Iran deal — and then accused Cruz of distorting his words. “Senator, I never said the word ‘apology.’ I never mentioned apologizing. I said we should thank them from extraordinary service…Please, don’t distort my words,” Kerry said. “Secretary Kerry, it is duly noted that you do not apologize to the families of the service members that were murdered by the Iranian military,” Cruz replied. “Do you apologize or not? I don’t want to put words in your mouth — so which one is it?”
