Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Ben Cardin (D-MD), respectively the chair and ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, have sent a public letter to President Barack Obama urging him to "postpone the vote at the United Nations until after Congress considers this [Iran] agreement." In the view of the senators, proceeding to the United Nations before Congress can weigh in on the deal would be contrary to the president's own statement that "it's important for the American people and Congress to get a full opportunity to review this deal."
