There’s at least one Senator we can count on to oppose Obama’s nuke deal with Iran, and he’s vowing that he’ll do everything he can to make sure it doesn’t become reality.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who has emerged as a key critic of the Obama administration’s moves to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, vowed Friday to keep a framework agreement from materializing.
“I’m going to do everything I can to stop these terms from becoming a final deal,” Cotton said Friday on CNN’s “The Lead,” noting it is unclear when the deal would attempt to lift international sanctions.
Secretary of State John Kerry has suggested sanctions would be relaxed in phases, while Iran’s leaders have described them in more immediate terms, Cotton noted.
“That’s why this deal still may not be consummated by June,” Cotton said.
Cotton suggested lawmakers could counter the administration’s efforts by not allowing congressionally mandated sanctions to be waved, imposing new sanctions and pushing for legislation allowing Congress to review any deal reached with Iran.
It doesn’t help that Iran already is saying that Obama is lying about what the deal actually was. How are we supposed to trust the deal when Iran won’t even confirm what Obama is telling the American public?
