Corker says there's a bipartisan deal on giving Congress a voice on Iran

Obama's most trusted adviser
Senator Bob Corker (R-Tn) says that a bipartisan deal has been reached that will ensure that Congress has a say on the Iranian nuclear 'framework.'
“We have reached a bipartisan agreement that keeps the congressional review process absolutely intact, full of integrity,” Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
Corker also said it is his understanding that the bill includes language that addresses concerns over whether Iran should recognize the state of Israel as part of the agreement. He did not specify the language.
The bill is set for a 2:15 p.m. committee vote, where it is widely expected to pass.
Corker said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision Monday to lift a ban on missile system deliveries to Iran shows the “significant complexities” on the nuclear negotiations. Russia and China are both part of the P5+1 group that reached a preliminary deal with Iran earlier this month, but they don’t necessarily have the same relationships or goals as the United States, he said.
“I want us to have, by the way, a successfully negotiated agreement with Iran,” Corker added, “but obviously, you know, our partner—quote, quote, quote—Russia, certainly is making this very, very difficult, as they have in other parts of the world.”
Regarding comments from the administration that officials have been working with him on the substance of the bill, Corker demurred.
Let's go to the videotape.

Actually it's a surrender: a) the Senate will *not* vote on the Iran deal that is reached but only on the U.S. sanctions in effect specifically; b) they give up the U.S. Constitution's requirement that treaties require 2/3's support of the Senate and reverse that--those who oppose the deal will require not 40 percent but a veto proof 2/3 to overcome the President. So they caved while giving themselves the PR to show they are doing "oversight". They are craven and Obama will get his deal. Bibi is an idiot to think he can rely on the Senate GOP to counter the President. This is a way to go through the motions while giving in to the President just as they did on Obamacare and immigration. The GOP has collectively no principles, only donor interests and those big donors don't care about Israel or the Jews.
