GOP senators: We want vote on any North Korea deal

Source: The Hill

Republican senators said on Tuesday that they want the Trump administration to submit any final deal between the United States and North Korea to Congress for a vote.

The push for a congressional role comes as Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed an agreement committing the United States to unspecified "security guarantees" in exchange for a denuclearized Korean Peninsula.

"Yeah, assuming there is a final agreement, they've indicted that they would bring that agreement to us in the form of a treaty," GOP Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the Foreign Relations Committee chairman, said on Tuesday.

Sending any agreement to the Senate in the form of a treaty would require the deal to get bipartisan support and win over two-thirds of the chamber. The Obama-era State Department rankled congressional Republicans when it defined the Iran nuclear deal as a "nonbinding agreement" instead of a treaty.

4. If it's a good treaty, it can stand a vote

That is why the Senate should advise and consent. My understanding is that treaties are binding in the way that other agreements aren't. Also the advantage is that any treaty is completely out there for inspection and debate. I believe it's actually one of the most important things the Senate is supposed to do.
