‘It’s a Simple Fact of Our Constitution’: Freshman Senator Schools CBS On Iran’s Nukes

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) defended his controversial letter to the Iranian government to a skeptical Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation Sunday morning, just after an interview with Secretary of State John Kerry in which the chief negotiator condemned Cotton’s letter as a false representation of the constitutional process written by a foreign policy neophyte. “The fact that President Obama doesn’t see this letter as way to get more leverage at the negotiating table just underscores that he is not negotiating for the hardest deal possible,” Cotton said. “Are you planning to contact any other of our adversaries?” Schieffer asked. “Do you plan to check with the North Koreans to make sure they know any deal has to be approved by the Congress?”
