Speaker John A. Boehner on Thursday said it is “very possible” the House will pursue legal action against the Obama administration for not complying with the Iran nuclear deal review act, adding that “all options are on the table.”Boehner also dismissed the vote to approve the Iran deal in the House this week as simply a messaging vehicle, saying it is part of Congress’ job to hold members accountable for their positions. “If the Senate is able to move a bill, we want to preserve our right to move a motion of disapproval, and as a result what we’ll vote on this week is a motion to approve the Iran nuclear act,” Boehner said. “This is about holding every member accountable for their vote.”
