Speaking with reporters Tuesday following a meeting with Secretary of State John Kerry, Sen. Bob Corker said the White House was “spinning” the implications of a measure he’s sponsored to increase the role of Congress in any potential Iran nuclear agreement, saying he has had “no conversations with the White House about the substance” of the bill. “I’ve had only pushback — even in the Kerry presentation — he was pushing back against this legislation, and my sense is they know this thing has run away, and very likely is going to go way beyond the veto threat,” Corker said.
