Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice isn’t too concerned with President Trump’s possible withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear agreement; saying the United States will be “just fine” outside the international pact.
“The allies love this deal, and I certainly hope that in their meeting with President Trump that [French President Emmanuel] Macron and [German Chancellor Angela] Merkel talk about ways to improve the deal if we’re going to stay in it,” Rice told Fox News.
“But if we get out of this deal, it’s going to be just fine,” she said. “The Iranians, I think, will try and stay in because they do want that investment eventually to start flowing,” she added.
“I would probably have stayed in for alliance management purposes, but I have no argument,” said the former Bush official. “If the president decides to pull out of the deal, I have no argument with that.”
President Trump is expected to announce his decision within weeks, with European allies and Iran scrambling to put forth a possible “Plan B” should the US opt-out of the agreement.
CONDI CRUSH: Condoleezza Rice Tells Adam Schiff to ‘WRAP IT UP’ to HIS FACE
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice didn’t hold back when speaking with Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff regarding his never-ending witch hunt of President Trump; telling the liberal lawmaker it’s time to “wrap it up” and move on.
Rice and Schiff were speaking with ABC’s ‘The View’ when the former George W. Bush aide weighed-in on Schiff’s months-long investigation into allegations the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russian officials ahead of the 2016 presidential race.
"I appreciate what you're doing for the country — but I really hope you can wrap it up," @CondoleezzaRice tells @RepAdamSchiff her hopes for the Russia probe: "The country needs to get back to business, so… my greatest hope is that this gets done." https://t.co/f8u2wc159S pic.twitter.com/428NJFeFUN

“Let me just say this. I’ve spent a lot of time in Washington and I know you’ve got a really hard job and I appreciate what you do for the country, but I really hope you can wrap it up. The country needs to get back to business,” Rice told Schiff, who looked on in disbelief.
That’s my greatest hope is that this gets done,” she added.
TEHRAN’S TANTRUM: Iran Accuses US of Deploying LIZARDS to SPY on Nuke Program
A senior military official inside Iran publicly accused the United States of utilizing “lizards” to spy on the nation’s illegal nuclear program; adding that the covert animals were capable of “attracting atomic waves.”
According to the Times of Israel, a former Chief-of-Staff to the Iranian armed forces told reporters this week that the United States deployed “reptile desert species” to locate subterranean nuclear weapons factories and missile silos.
“Several years ago, some individuals came to Iran to collect aid for Palestine… We were suspicious of the route they chose,” said Hassan Firuzabadi, a top adviser to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
“In their possessions were a variety of reptile desert species like lizards, chameleons… We found out that their skin attracts atomic waves and that they were nuclear spies who wanted to find out where inside the Islamic Republic of Iran we have uranium mines and where we are engaged in atomic activities,” he added.
Bizarre allegations of the US and Israel using animals to spy on Iran and other neighboring countries is nothing new. Hamas and the Lebanese government commonly accuse the west of deploying dolphins and birds to penetrate their waterways and airspace.
