The chairwoman of the House panel on the Middle East demanded Wednesday that President Obama make public the text of his nuclear deal with Iran.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) in a letter to the president said Iran appears to be moving ahead with its nuclear program while claiming to be abiding by the deal, which went into effect on Jan. 20. She said the White House must make it public so the “American people … can judge for themselves the merits of this deal.”

“Since the implementation phase began, we have seen the Iranian regime announce that it has developed centrifuges that are 15 times faster than what they currently possess and claimed to have successfully test fired two long range missiles,” she wrote. “Even more alarming is the fact that the Iranian regime, according to reports, believe that these actions are within their right under the Joint Plan of Action.”

The White House has said that it has made most of the agreement public save for “technical” arrangements with the United Nation’s atomic watchdog, which is monitoring the agreement.

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have previously called for the full agreement to be made public.
