Although the House report does not admit any illegality on IP3's part, it thoroughly accounts how the firm exploited its White House connections to advance its interests.
Chen Kane, director of the Middle East nonproliferation program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, stated in an interview with Politico:
"I see a problem that the Trump administration is giving time to IP3 and their ideas."
A former senior congressional staffer who worked on nuclear matters added:
"The fact that the people previously pushing this scheme got the meeting with the president after all their attempts to get meetings elsewhere throughout the administration is suspicious."
Top State Department arms control and nuclear proliferation official under President Obama, Thomas Countryman, warned:
"The U.S. has an interest in not seeing the expansion of enrichment and reprocessing technology in the region. It would be a mistake to compromise these principles too far."
The United States' participation in the Saudi Arabia-led intervention in the Syrian civil war has implicated itself in the starvation of 14 million people who have been suffering since the Saudi-led war in Yemen escalated in 2015.
Then there was the brutal death and dismemberment of Saudi journalist and American resident Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2, for which Donald Trump defended Saudi Arabia.
In December, David Fahrenthold and Jonathan O'Connell reported in The Washington Post that lobbyists representing the Saudi Arabian government reserved 500 rooms at Trump's D.C. hotel within a month of the 2016 presidential election, for which they paid more than $270,000, on behalf of six groups of U.S. military veterans sent to Washington to lobby against a law the Saudis opposed.
