Secret Deals – Will Obama disobey the Law?
The Iran Nuclear Deal gets wormier by the minute. Senator Tom Cotton confronted Secretary of State John Kerry after he told the Senate that they “can’t reveal the contents of secret sides deals to the American people.” And Obama has threatened to veto Congressional action or simply go around them if they reject the Iran nuclear deal.
It’s about to become a real live showdown over the nuclear deal.
The secret side deals
Senator Tom Cotton: “I’d like to stick with you, Secretary Kerry. Why can’t we confirm or deny the content of these agreements in public? Why is this classified? It’s not a sensitive U.S. government document.”
Kerry: “Because we respect the process of the IAEA and we don’t have their authorization to reveal what is a confidential agreement between them and another country.”
Cotton: “So the ayatollahs will know what they agreed to but not the American people?”
Let’s get this completely straight: they respect the IAEA , UN and Iran, OVER the citizens of the United States and the Congress. Once again, this administration has proven out of their own lips their contempt for Americans.
Obama has threatened to veto any rejection of his Nuclear Deal…and no matter what Congress does, will he go around them regarding this deal that is no deal?
In testimony before the House Committee on Foreign Relations on July 28, Secretary Kerry made a startling statement. Even a Democrat was shocked.
Rep Brad Sherman (D-CA): “Let’s say Congress doesn’t take your advice, we override a veto, and the law that’s triggered then imposes certain sanctions. Will you follow the law even though you think it violates this agreement clearly and even if you think it’s absolutely terrible policy?”
Kerry: “I can’t begin to answer that at this point without consulting with the president and determining what the circumstances are.”
Sherman: “So you’re not committed to following the law?”
Kerry: “No, I said I’m not going to deal with a hypothetical, that’s all.”
‘They don’t need no stinking Constitution’
Huh? What ‘circumstances?’ John Kerry and Obama are willing to disobey the United States Congress and go ahead with their Nuclear deal in spite of the law?
This administration and all of its cronies are not just liars, they are deliberately placing America in harm’s way.
