Sen. Bob Corker Pushes Congressional Review Of Iran Deal On Fox News

Washington, DC

Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), appeared on Fox News Sunday saying discrepancies on the political framework agreement between the U.S and Iran reveal the necessity for congressional review of any final deal.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee plans to vote April 14 on Corker’s “Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015.”

The legislation would require President Obama to submit the final deal to Congress before lifting any sanctions on Iran.

“As you just reported in Iran, they’re reporting sort of the mirror image opposite of what’s being reported here,” Corker said.

“I know there are a lot of details that will be worked out over the next several months…and that’s why it’s so important that Congress play its rightful role in approving this prior to the congressionally-mandated sanctions that we put in place [being] alleviated.”

Corker says his legislation imposing congressional review would not disrupt any of the remaining negotiations.
