The Obama administration on Wednesday kicked off its push for approval of the Iran nuclear deal by dispatching Vice President Joe Biden to Congress, where he assured Democrats nothing in the pact would preclude military action if Tehran violated the agreement.
“He stated clearly that nothing in the agreement takes the military option off the table,” U.S. Representative Steve Israel said after leaving the closed-door meeting between Biden and House of Representatives Democrats.
The meeting took place a few hours before President Barack Obama held a news conference making his case for the deal.
The White House needs support from Obama’s fellow Democrats in the Senate and the House to preserve the agreement between the United States and five other world powers, given intense Republican opposition to the pact.
