Rep. Nancy Pelosi isn't too concerned with what the Iranian regime does once they receive their sanctions relief as a part of the nuclear deal, so long as they don't make a nuclear bomb.
That relief comes at a total of $150 billion that will flow back into the hands of the Iranian government.
However, speaking to CNN's Chris Cuomo on Wednesday, the House minority leader said such an arrangement will be worth it, even if they do bad things with the money. She tried to soften the blow by explaining that these are not U.S. funds, but Iran's own money now unfrozen.
"I think it’s really important for the American people to realize, though, that the money that is being released is Iranian money held in other banks, not in U.S. banks," Pelosi said. "So it isn’t about us giving them anything. It’s about them having access to their own money if they meet the terms of the agreement.”
Cuomo reiterated public concern over that much money being used to "do bad things" with, to which Pelosi nearly shrugged, "Yeah, well they may."
"They have been doing bad things with the money that they have," she continued, "but the fact is the biggest threat to all of us is that Iran would have a nuclear weapon. We have taken them off that course. How much is that worth, of their own money?”
We all feel better knowing you're on the case, Nance.
