(Worthy News) – President Obama will have a hard time getting congressional approval of a Iranian , according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, the Washington Examiner reported.

There have been numerous delays on the way to a long-term comprehensive deal to curb Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

“It’s going to be a very hard sell,” McConnell said on “Fox Sunday.” “I know there will be a strong pull not to go against the president on something that is so important to him. But it is a very hard sell.”

The current framework agreement is not enough to stop from eventually acquiring nuclear weapons, according to McConnell. [ Source ]

Sen. Corker: Iran will ‘cheat by inches’

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman added that Iran desires nuclear weapons no matter what diplomatic deal is reached.

“We know they were building a bomb, we just don’t know how far along they were,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. He said he is concerned about a deal because we have to make sure it is “verifiable” that they are no longer working on nuclear weapons.

If a final deal is reached by Monday, has 60 days to review it. Corker said that his fellow lawmakers will do what is best for both the U.S. and the greater international community if and when the time comes to review the deal. [ Source ]
