Meanwhile, at a National Security Council meeting Friday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, national security advisor H.R. McMaster and other senior security officials presented a draft proposal allowing for a more aggressive response to Iranian noncompliance, Reuters reported.
We respectfully urge that you, as our elected representatives in a co-equal branch of government, do everything in Congress' power to prevent Donald Trump from dismantling the Iran nuclear deal and from escalating towards a disastrous war with Iran.
The Iranian computer security company ITSec Team and three associated Iranian nationals were sanctioned for roles in denial-of-service attacks against at least nine large US financial institutions, including top banks and stock exchanges, according to the statement.
While Trump is complying with the deal for now, all eyes are on another deadline - October 14 - when the administration must certify to Congress that Iran is meeting its obligations under the agreement and that the deal remains within US interests.
"No decision has been made", Tillerson said of the administration's view of the deal.
"Iran is clearly in defiance of these obligations", Tillerson said, pointing to its support of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government, cyber activity and testing of ballistic missiles. He also told The Wall Street Journal that he "does not expect that they will be in compliance".
He also noted that the United Nations nuclear agency has already verified there has been no undeclared nuclear activities in Iran.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, last week laid out a scenario under which Trump would keep the U.S.in the deal but refuse to certify Iran's compliance with it, kicking the problem to Congress and forcing it to decide whether to reimpose sanctions that were eased under the agreement.
Jaffer wrote: "It was a bad deal from the start, combining a significant weakening of the long-standing worldwide position on ballistic missile development with offering Iran the opportunity to conduct advanced R&D on uranium centrifuges, a self-testing regime on nuclear military sites, and a potential long-term path to a weapon even in compliance with the deal".
The current nuclear deal is a failure; that is plain to see. If the president doesn't certify compliance, Congress has 60 days to decide whether to re-impose sanctions lifted under the agreement.
In another, the White House elaborated. They argue that at the very least Iran is violating the spirit of the agreement with its ballistic missile tests. At such a situation Iran's right of protesting or even leaving the nuclear agreement is reserved.
New sanctions won't work either, the three said.
"We are not going to stand for what they are doing to this country", Trump told reporters traveling with him on Air Force One.
The idea may meet more skepticism from German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who cited the "good end" reached in the Iran accord in an interview published this week, saying the approach could be replicated in talks over North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
