The consensus on the hill is Biden is weak in his dealings with Iran. Reports from multiple media outlets say members of the Biden negotiation team have walked away because Joe is “too soft.”
Now, Ted Cruz (R-TX) and more than 30 other GOP Senators are stepping in.
According to Fox News, “In a letter to Biden sent Monday, the senators asserted that any Iran nuclear deal should be considered a treaty due to its inherent ‘gravity for U.S. national security,’ and thus requires two-thirds of the Senate to agree to it.”
“We write to call attention to a range of obligations that your administration is statutorily mandated to fulfill in relation to Congressional oversight over any such agreement,” the letter said. “[W]e are committed to using the full range of options and leverage available to United States Senators to ensure that you meet those obligations, and that the implementation of any agreement will be severely if not terminally hampered if you do not.”
“The senators stated that a ‘genuinely robust’ deal with Iran would get Senate approval, and therefore ‘the only reason not to present it for a resolution of ratification is that it is too weak to pass muster,’” Fox reports.
Former governor Nikki Haley shared the story on Twitter:
“Glad to see Senate Republicans holding this administration accountable. No deal with Iran should be made, and certainly not without Senate approval. What a dangerous mess Joe Biden is making.”
