Obama rejects Congressional approval of Iran nuke deal


The last time I checked, it was the Senate's job to approve treaties. The Constitution of the United States is pretty explicit on that matter in Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 which states, "[The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur."

Yes, the President can initiate treaties with foreign powers, but he cannot unilaterally approve and implement them, that is the job of the Senate only. Of course when you have a completely wimpy Senate and a nearly traitorous president who completely ignores the Constitution such as Barack Obama, no telling what will happen.

I don't know how you can call a nuclear deal with Iran anything other than a treaty, but you can bet Barack Obama will find a way.

Read more below from the Jerusalem Post:

US President Barack Obama would veto a bill crafted by US Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and Bob Corker that would require the administration to receive congressional approval for any deal it strikes with Iran over Tehran’s nuclear program, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Thursday.

The bill would set a “harmful precedent” that would “negatively impact” negotiations with Iran, Earnest said at a news briefing.
