MPR: Sen. Franken applauds Iranian release of Americans Bauer and Fattal
DFL Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar are applauding the release of two Americans who were jailed in Iran on espionage charges.
One of the men, 29-year-old Shane Bauer, was born and raised in Minnesota. Franken said he hopes to meet Bauer soon.
“I’m very relieved that it looks like it’s over and I won’t completely breathe freely until they’re back with their families,” Franken said Wednesday morning.
