• How DNC Chair Teared Up After She Sold Out Israel

    Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz revealed during an interview Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper that after a lot of personal debate, she will vote in favor of the Iran nuclear deal.

    “I concluded that the best thing to do is to vote in support of the Iran deal and make sure that we can put Iran years away from being a threshold nuclear state, and ensure that we can more closely concentrate on their terrorist activity,” she said.

    Wasserman-Schultz’s voice cracked and she became emotional when Tapper asked her how she would respond to her Jewish constituents who will say “you sold out Israel” by backing the Iran Deal.

    “I’m the first Jewish woman to represent Florida in Congress. I’m a Jewish mother,” she said. “There’s nothing more important to me, as a Jew, to ensure that Israel’s existence is there throughout our generations. And I’m confident that the process I have gone through to reach this decision is one that will ensure that Israel will be there forever. It’s the homeland of my people.”

    “I’m an American citizen, and I believe fervently in protecting America’s national security interests. And there’s no way that we would be able to ensure that better than approving this deal and ensuring that Iran is not ever able to get access to nuclear weapons, and that we can shift our focus with the rest of the world on going after their terrorist ambitions,” she said.
