The House of Representatives declared that President Obama has broken the law by not giving Congress access to the side agreements between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran. The House vote was 245-186.
The House is taking action against Obama for failing to provide the texts of the side agreements between the IAEA and Iran, which is required under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015.
Members of Congress have expressed concern that they have not been allowed to see the text of the text of the agreements between the IAEA and Iran governing the protocols for nuclear inspections.
This deal is far worse than anything I could have imagined, said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. This is such a bad deal, the ayatollah won’t even have to cheat to be steps away from a nuclear weapon.
Obama hasn’t seen these agreements, and is only aware of their general content. Some concerning details have emerged, such as that Iran will be responsible for collecting soil samples for testing by the IAEA. At the same time, Iranian leaders have been emphatic that they will not give inspectors access to conventional military sites where nuclear activity is suspected of taking place.
