News reports confirmed this week that President Obama intends to submit the Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, to the United Nations Security Council before allowing Congress a chance to scrutinize the deal.
The reaction from Congress was justified outrage.
Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, in a letter to the president, “It is distressing that your administration would afford Russia and China the opportunity to vote on the final agreement before the American people’s representatives do.”
“The full 60-day review period and parliamentary procedures prescribed by the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act should be allowed to play out before action at the Security Council.”
