In this week's Republican address, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) vows that Republicans will continue to lead the fight to stop the president's Iran deal.  Detailing how dangerous the deal is for our security, and the security of our allies, McCaul says, "This was not a negotiation with an honest government.  It was a negotiation with terrorists, who chant 'Death to America' and stand against freedom and democracy."

You can watch the address now, and check out these headlines: 
“Republicans are launching fresh attacks against the Iran nuclear deal.  The deal ‘will leave Iran with the ingredients for a bomb and the infrastructure to build it,’ Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said Saturday in a video. ‘Rather than stopping nuclear proliferation, this puts the Middle East at the starting line of a nuclear arms race.’  … ‘Congress has spent several weeks reviewing this agreement and listening to the American people,' McCaul, the House Homeland Security Committee chairman, said.  ‘It is now clear that this deal will not stop a nuclear Iran - but will instead endanger America and our allies for years to come.’” (CBS News)

House Republicans excoriated President Obama for his Iran deal in their weekly address… 'Unfortunately, President Obama's policies embolden Iran's leaders,' said Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, saying it puts Iran on a ‘glide-path’ to a nuclear weapon. ‘Instead of countering the regime's terrorist networks, the White House let them spread. And the President allowed Iran to get closer to a nuclear weapon.’” (Washington Examiner)

GOP rep: Iran deal starts Middle East nuclear arms race.  The President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran ‘puts the Middle East at the starting line of a nuclear arms race,’ House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) said Saturday.  ‘It will leave Iran with the ingredients for a bomb and the infrastructure to build it,’ McCaul said in the GOP’s weekly address. ‘And it will give Iran a cash windfall, freeing up over $100 billion to fuel the regime’s global campaign of Islamist terror.'  Senate Democrats on Thursday blocked a resolution disapproving the Iran nuclear deal… But that hasn’t stopped Republicans from continuing to fight the deal, which they insist will fill Iran’s coffers while failing to create a robust nuclear inspection regime.” (The Hill)

Rep. Michael McCaul: Iran Nuclear Deal Was 'Negotiation with Terrorists'.  In the weekly Republican address, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, vowed to keep working to fight the Iran nuclear deal. … Speaking of his experience chairing a Congressional hearing at the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City earlier in the week, McCaul invokes to American promise not to forget the September 11th attacks 14 years ago. ‘Iran's leaders have called for our defeat and the destruction of our close friend Israel,’ McCaul said. ‘The regime is responsible for more than 1,000 American casualties during the Iraq war, they have plotted a terrorist attack here in our Nation's capital, and launched destructive cyberattacks against American companies.’” (ABC News Radio)

“US House Votes to Reject Iran Nuclear Deal.  The international nuclear deal with Iran ‘will not stop a nuclear Iran, but will instead endanger America and our allies for years to come,’ U.S. House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said Saturday in the weekly Republican address.  The House voted Friday to reject the international deal with Iran to curb its nuclear weapons, after a morning of emotional debate.” (VOA News)

McCaul: Agreement Will Not Stop Iran From Getting Nuclear Weapons.  Fourteen years after the 9/11 attacks, the threat from extremists is still growing, House Homeland Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said in Saturday's GOP address, adding that President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran will allow it to continue sponsoring terrorism and will not keep it from obtaining nuclear weapons.” (Newsmax)
