Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaks during a news conference at the United Nations in New YorkBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday excoriated Republican senators for their letter warning Iran against a nuclear deal with President Barack Obama, saying they either were trying to help Tehran or harm the U.S. commander-in-chief. Monday’s open letter to Iran’s leaders, signed by 47 Republican senators, sparked a political firestorm. Vice President Joe Biden also sharply criticized the lawmakers while three potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, former Texas Governor Rick Perry and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, threw their support behind the letter.
