WASHINGTON -- In an effort to reassert control over the domestic political debate surrounding sensitive negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program, the White House penned a letter Saturday night warning senators to hold back on legislation that would detract from the president’s ability to affect and approve a final agreement with Iran.




The letter, written by White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough to Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), reiterates a veto threat of the bill, while insisting that Congress will have a say in reviewing and affecting the ultimate outcome. But in far more detailed and foreboding terms than normal, McDonough lays out the administration's concerns should Corker's Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 end up becoming law.




"The Administration's request to the Congress is simple: let us complete the negotiations before the Congress acts on legislation," writes McDonough. "We understand that Congress will make its own determinations about how to respond, but we do not believe that the country's interests are served by congressional attempts to weigh in prematurely on this sensitive and consequential ongoing international negotiation aimed at achieving a goal that we all share: using diplomacy to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon."


Sounds like someone's trying to buy time..

I don't understand why so much time and energy into one subject one problem why there's a dead body here and it's starting to smell..

So much for checks and balances...

It's the provenance of the executive branch to set foreign policy. Neocons in congress are trying to thwart an Iran deal by ramming through last minute sanctions to scuttle any chance at diplomacy. The danger is that passing additional punitive sanctions will be seen by the world as the intent of the USA to guarantee talks fail, and will undermine the US if it then tries to push for war.

Again, the US will not be in a position to incite war with Iran over stalled negotiations if those negotiations stalled on account of deceptive tactics like those posed by the Sentate.


the letter warns Corker that his bill, which would give Congress the right to vote up or down on the final nuclear agreement, would cripple U.S. negotiators and lead Iran and international negotiating partners to question the U.S.' ability to follow through on its end of the bargain.


Once again, this has never been done this way by Congress before. Clearly they are under some influence to undermine these talks.

Obama and Jarrett were installed for this very thing and to ruin America as much as possible on the way .

I really don't think the Jarrett administration counted on anyone having the nerve to do something like this.

Right or wrong this letter to IRAN may make the PTB pull out all stops and show there true agenda with little time left.

IMO

Not directly but can definitely pave the way for political feuding in the government. Still not a good thing a all out schoolyard war between our leaders makes us look extremely weak thus weakening our image as a country that can take care of business. Hence undermining the USA.
If we act like children what adult political officials will take us seriously.

If you can't figure that out there is no explaining it to you...lets see maybe the fact Iran wants to wipe us of the face of the earth... but hay , who knows maybe you think that's a good thing.

Is my avatar on your talking points list or am I just lucky.

.......and the WORLD sits back and laughs, giving them one more reason to distrust the US.

This "Letter" to Iran just undermined 50 yrs of US diplomacy. Basically telling the world, our INTERNATIONAL agreements will change with every new administration. Good luck with that....

No it's not...it's a few nutters stepping outta bounds. The ball hasn't even been put in their court yet. They didn't just undermine Obummer, they undermined the complete office and stability of the any future administration.

The myopic view of some is baffling.....
