Congress’ Appropriate Role in Iran Negotiations

in Program

Stimson’s Laicie Heeley discusses the ongoing Iran negotiations and the role Congress has played thus far.

“When you’re talking about over 500 members of Congress, that’s a lot of folks at the negotiating table who aren’t necessarily representing the best intrest of the nation,” Heeley says. “That’s the President’s role, they’re representing their individual states and districts and the folks at home. That is their job, that’s why they’re elected.”
