Corker Sticking With Iran Bill as Obama Pushes for More Time

Even as President Barack Obama warned Congress not to interfere with a burgeoning nuclear deal with Iran, Republican leaders showed no signs of backing away from legislation that could scuttle the agreement.
GOP lawmakers were particularly displeased that Iran could get swift relief from sanctions if Tehran follows through on the agreement.
Sen. Bob Corker said he was pressing forward with a bill that would give lawmakers the power to approve or reject the agreement’s lifting of sanctions, and House Speaker John Boehner backed a similar approach on Thursday.
