White House warns Senate Republicans to stay out of Iran deal
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The White House is warning Senate Republicans to stay out of it, as it negotiates a deal on Iran’s nuclear program.
Talks resume today in Switzerland.
The Administration warns Republican senators that pending legislation requiring Congress’ approval of a deal, could have a “profoundly negative impact” on negotiations.
The president’s chief of staff threatens a veto.
Some Republicans argue lifting sanctions on Iran could enable its development of a nuclear weapon.
Forty-seven of them signed a letter addressed to Iran. Any agreement could expire after President Obama leaves office.
