Earnest: GOP in ‘Rush to War’ With Iran

Congressional Republicans are in “a rush to war” with Iran, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Monday.

But after using the phrase “rush to war,” Earnest caught himself.

“The rush to war, or at least the rush to the military option, that many Republicans are advocating is not at all in the best interest of the United States,” Earnest said as he blasted the latest move by Senate Republicans to interject themselves into the critical talks with Iran about its nuclear program by sending an open letter to the regime.
