Kerry: ‘Under Law’ Obama Admin Needs Congressional Approval of Iran Deal (Washington Free Beacon)

Secretary of State John Kerry told a Senate committee Tuesday that the Obama administration is “obligated under the law” to earn congressional approval of any nuclear deal with Iran in order for congressionally-imposed economic sanctions to be lifted.

Kerry’s comments suggest that the White House may have abandoned its effort, disclosed in January by the Free Beacon, to find ways to lift sanctions on Iran without the approval of Congress.
