House GOP demands testimony from White House aide on Iran deal

House Republicans are pressing top White House adviser Ben Rhodes to testify on Capitol Hill following controversial comments he made about the Obama administration’s marketing of the nuclear deal with Iran.

Republican leaders of the House Oversight Committee want Rhodes to testify next Tuesday morning during a hearing titled “White House narratives on the Iran nuclear deal,” committee spokeswoman M.J. Henshaw told The Hill.

Rhodes, whose full title is the deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, has yet to respond to the request, and no one else has so far been asked to appear, Henshaw added.

However, Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) has threatened to use a subpoena to demand his presence, one aide said.

    The do-nothing RINOs are looking to play the Ovomit card of “I didn’t know about it until I heard it on the news.” They didn’t have to forfeit their constitutional power on the nuclear arms deal with Iran. Now they’re only trying to appear less complicit.
