A few weeks after U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) raised the alarm at her D.C. update in Huntsville about the lack of transparency and unwillingness by the Biden administration to hold Iran accountable for their state-sponsored terrorism, President Joe Biden, his Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, and Secretary of State Antony Blinkin have recently made the decision to renew yet another Iran sanctions waiver, according to Britt.

Britt, U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and a host of other colleagues announced Thursday they had sent the Biden administration a letter protesting the move and demanding transparency on the issue.

The senators raised concerns that the latest waiver makes sanctioned Iranian funds, which could be used to fund terrorism, more accessible to the Iranian regime and disregards congressional intent calling for severe restrictions on payments to Iran.

Britt said, "Renewing a sanctions waiver for Iran, the world's leading sponsor of terrorism, should never even be a consideration for the United States of America. Unfortunately, to the grave detriment of U.S. national security and global stability, this financial subsidy to Iran falls squarely in line with the Biden Administration's posture of appeasement."

"U.S. sanctions policy must return to a strategy of maximum pressure, not only to project unwavering American strength to deter more hostile aggression but also to hold accountable both those who carried out these terrorist attacks and those who supported them," she added.

Last week, Britt joined "Capitol Journal" to discuss her unwavering support for Israel and the importance of reimposing bone-crushing sanctions to terminate Iran's terror network and prevent their ability to fund terrorist proxy groups like Hamas and Hezbollah.

In the letter, the senators wrote, "It is unfathomable that this is the context in which the administration determined that it was within the national security interest of the United States to waive sanctions on restricted Iranian funds, making them more accessible to the regime. If we want to actually restore deterrence in the region, those funds should be placed further out of Iran's reach, not closer."

Britt has been a consistent, outspoken proponent of maximum pressure on Iran. At her speech in Huntsville in March, she pointed out that under President Trump, Iran made $7 billion in oil exports, but under Biden, they've made $80 billion a year. She said when she pointed this out to Yellen and other Biden officials, it had fallen on deaf ears.

Britt, along with the rest of Alabama's Republican delegation, have hammered the Biden administration for what they say are its continued dangerous foreign policy failures.
