As negotiations with Iran continue among the White House, and five other nations, the Republican Congress is working to undermine efforts once again.

Sens. Mark Kirk (R., Ill.) and Robert Menendez (D., N.J.) revived on Thursday long-stalled legislation to impose and extend sanctions on Iran for a period of at least 10 more years, according to sources familiar with the move.

The bipartisan bid to extend economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic comes ahead of a self-imposed June 30 deadline for Western powers to reach a nuclear agreement with Iran…

While Congress has historically extended Iran sanctions in a bipartisan manner, the issue has become more controversial as the Obama administration moves to suppress such efforts in order to preserve its diplomacy.
