U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement regarding news that the Administration is preparing to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. 

"A formal designation and its consequences may be new, but these IRGC butchers have been terrorists for a long time. This would be an important step in our maximum-pressure campaign against Iran, the largest state-sponsor of terror and the biggest chaos agent inside the Middle East. This would greatly expand our ability to roll back Iran’s ability to fund and export terror abroad."
