Lindsey Graham To Netanyahu: Congress ‘Will Follow Your Lead’
Senator Lindsey Graham met in Jerusalem with Benjamin Natanyahu where he pledged congressional support.
…Graham (R-SC) told the foreign leader Congress would “follow his lead” on a bill to reinforce sanctions on Iran.
“In January of next year, there will be a vote on the Kirk-Menendez bill, bipartisan sanction legislation that says, if Iran walks away from the table, sanctions will be reimposed,” Graham said. “If Iran cheats regarding any deal that we enter to the Iranians, sanctions will be reimposed.”
Graham and a variety of senators have been skeptical, to put it mildly, of the long-haul effort by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry to broker a deal with Iran that reverses the country’s nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions.
Imagine a liberal pledging fealty to a foreign leader at the expense of actual Americans.[su_csky_ad]
