GOP poised to dash Obama’s Iran hopes
Republicans are flexing their muscles and threatening to block President Obama from cutting a nuclear deal with Iran on his own terms.
International negotiators have until Nov. 24 under an interim agreement to reach a deal with Tehran that would curb its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief, or seek another extension of talks.
While the GOP won’t take control of the Senate until Jan.3, they are quickly making it clear they are serious about closely vetting any agreement. As the deadline approaches, Republicans fear the administration is too eager to reach a deal and could concede too much in talks.
A GOP Congress could doom what the president hopes will be a legacy foreign policy achievement.
