(Worthy News)-- The Obama administration is scrambling to reassure members of Congress about an impending nuclear deal with Iran amid a still growing controversy that has publicly pitted senior State Department and White officials against the New York Times and veteran D.C. reporters, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz and a team of scientists headed to Capitol Hill Tuesday in an effort to quiet concerns over the weakness of an impending final nuclear deal with Iran, according to sources apprised of the classified meeting.
Lawmakers, including Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, emerged from the meeting concerned that the Obama administration would secure a deal with Iran that fails to adequately check the Islamic Republic’s ability to build a nuclear weapon. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://freebeacon.com/national-security/obama-admin-scrambles-to-reassure-congress-on-iran-nuke-deal-in-classified-brief/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
