The News with Rick Sanchez - January 30, 2019 (20:00 ET)

Rick Sanchez reports on Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats’s testimony before Congress that Iran was not violating the Iran Nuclear Deal or trying to develop nuclear weapons and President Trump’s rancorous response Wednesday morning on Twitter, where he blasted his intelligence chief as “naïve,” “passive” and “wrong.” He reminds us of some basic facts: Israel and Saudi Arabia are key US allies and both hate Iran, the US invasion of Iraq backfired massively and the same forces that called for that invasion now have their sights set on Iran. Then RT America’s Dan Cohen reports on the diplomatic conspiracy to isolate Iran.
