Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), two of the Senate’s leading hawks on Iran, also wrote a joint letter warning Obama not to place too much trust in Rouhani.
“Like you, we viewed the election of Hassan Rouhani as an indicator of discontent amongst the Iranian people and we have taken note of recent diplomatic overtures by Iran,” Menendez and Graham wrote. “However, whatever nice words we may hear from Mr. Rouhani, it is Iranian action that matters.”
