Senator Tom Cotton Blasts Clinton, Obama

Arkansas Senator ripped into both President Obama and Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton in an interview with CBS's Face the Nation. Cotton started by addressing the recent Iran controversy, by saying that the alleged 400 million dollar payment to Iran was a "ransom" and "deeply unwise". He added:
"It's clear I think to every reasonable observer that the $400 million that day and the remainder of the $1.7 billion was in fact ransom. It doesn't really matter what Barack Obama says, it matters what the ayatollahs think and what every dictator and terrorist and gangster around the world think" -Tom Cotton
Cotton also said that if the payment was a ransom, it gave a clear indication Iran was not holding up it's end of the nuclear weapons deal and:
"The United States needs to walk away from the deal, which Iran is not upholding anyway, we need to put real sanctions back in place, we need to force Iran to dismantle its nuclear program entirely or face the threat of military force to destroy that program" -Tom Cotton
Cotton then proceeded to claim that Iranian nuclear scientist, Shahram Irami, who was executed for giving the US information on the weapons program, was killed because of information leaked from Clinton's email saying:
"I'm not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton's private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman" -Tom Cotton
Cotton then went to say that this further showed that Clinton was unfit to serve as President, saying:
"That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. And I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe" -Tom Cotton
Cotton is a first term senator from Arkansas who many consider a rising star in the party. He graduated from Harvard as an undergrad and law school before serving during the Iraq War and entering politics. He is viewed as a staunch conservative and has been highly critical of President Obama, especially on foreign issues.
