WASHINTON D.C. – Senator Tom Cotton standing alone on Thursday as the US Senate moves forward on its intention to oversee nuclear negotiations with Iran.
A bill to give congress that authority passed the Senate 98 to 1 today, with Cotton the only senator voting no.
Many who voted yes are skeptical about the ongoing negotiations with Iran. Senator Cotton though saying the bill passed doesn’t go nearly far enough in his estimation.
“I’m afraid this legislation is not going to give Congress the oversight that it needs and in the end could allow President Obama to claim that Congress blessed a very dangerous nuclear agreement with an islamist terrorist sponsoring regime in Iran,” Cotton said.
The deadline for US-Iran negotiations is June 30.
