Boehner ‘Not Aware’ of Israel Leaking Intel to Derail Iran Talks

Posted March 24, 2015 at 1:12pm

At a news conference Tuesday morning, Speaker John A. Boehner said he was “baffled” by a Wall Street Journal report that Israel spied on U.S.-Iranian negotiations and leaked intelligence to members of Congress with the intent of derailing the talks.

“I read that story this morning and frankly I was a bit shocked,” Boehner said. “I was shocked by the fact that there were reports in this press article that information was being passed on from the Israelis to members of Congress — I’m not aware of that at all.”
