With every passing day, many say Iran is getting closer and closer to getting the nuclear deal they want. Despite the criticisms coming from Israel’s Prime Minister and several conservatives, Obama is content moving forward with the Iranians.

Just last week, Obama warned Congress not to interfere; if they did and killed the deal, “international unity” would collapse. He vouched for the deal, arguing that it was the best way to prevent Iran from procuring a nuclear weapon.
In light of the president’s promises, Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., spoke with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday and urged Obama to “sell” his deal to Congress, if was in fact a good deal.
While Obama apparently fears that involving Congress in the deal would put an end to the negotiations, Corker says otherwise.

“We know that during the negotiations, the fact that Congress was likely to weigh in was something that the administration and the other western countries were able to use to ensure that this deal isn’t worse than it is,” Corker said. “If the president feels like this is something that’s good for the nation, surely he can sell it this to the United States Senate and House.”
Corker plans to vote on legislation on April 14 that would allow Congress to review the Iranian deal before it is implemented.
