Secretary of State John Kerry Tuesday acknowledged to House members that if they vote down the Iran deal – and override a presidential veto – that the deal would collapse.
According to the Washington Exanminer:
“It’s physically impossible” for the deal to continue because of the bar to waiving U.S. sanctions, Kerry said.
“There’s no way for the deal to work because our lifting of sanctions is critical to the ability of other countries to invest and work and critical obviously for Iran to get any money,” he added.
However, he seemed to hedge when asked if the administration would follow the law:
Earlier, Kerry was asked by Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., if he would obey the will of Congress if a disapproval resolution was enacted.
His response: “I can’t begin to answer that at this point without consulting with the president.”
Well, you should at least be able to begin answering whether you would follow the law . . .
Or not. Because that’s the way they roll at 1600 Pa. and environs.
