GOP Senators Warning Over US-Iran Nuclear Negotiations

Source: AP via ABC

From the link:
"Forty-seven Republican senators warned Monday that any agreement the Obama administration strikes with Iran to limit Tehran's nuclear program may be short-lived unless Congress approves the deal.

In an open letter to Iranian leaders, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and 46 other Republicans said that without congressional approval, any deal between Iran and the U.S. would be merely an agreement between President Barack Obama and Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

"The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen," they wrote, "and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time."

I see this as a larger more direct attack on the power of the Executive branch than the Netanyahu speech.

I was very surprised to not see this discussed here, and the so called MSM, busy making a mountain out of Hillary emails is pretty much ignoring these attacks against the very government they have sworn to uphold.

Edit: our to out.
