Schumer Agrees Congress Must Approve Iran Deal

We didn’t have high hopes for soon-to-be Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, but he’s proven himself sane on at least one count: joining several other Democrats in pushing for Congress to vote on Barack Obama’s deal with Iran. “This is a very serious issue that deserves careful consideration,” Schumer said, “and I expect to have a classified briefing in the near future. I strongly believe Congress should have the right to disapprove any agreement and I support the Corker bill which would allow that to occur.” He’s referring to Sen. Bob Corker’s Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, which requires a two-month review period for Congress and a final vote before sanctions on Iran can be lifted. “[B]efore [the Obama administration] starts unraveling the [sanctions on Iran] that Congress put in place, we want to make sure that they show us the deal,” Corker said in a statement prior to Congress’ recess. Schumer’s support will help. Then again, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest assured, “The sales pitch has only just begun.” And Nancy Pelosi may just save Obama in the House.
