Iran to bypass uranium enrichment maximum despite calls for rethink

Iran to bypass uranium enrichment maximum despite calls for rethinkIran ignored US and EU warnings Wednesday and vowed to exceed within days the maximum uranium enrichment level it agreed to in the landmark 2015 nuclear accord. Iran is acting on its May 8 threat to suspend parts of the agreement in response to US President Donald Trump’s reimposition of crippling sanctions after withdrawing from it in May last year. President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday’s decision was in response to failure by other parties to the deal to keep up their promises and provide Iran relief from the US sanctions.

GOP Rep.: ‘Republicans Would Be Going Nuts’ if Obama Had Declared Emergency to Bypass Congress

GOP Rep.: ‘Republicans Would Be Going Nuts’ if Obama Had Declared Emergency to Bypass CongressRepresentative Mike Simpson (R., Idaho) cast his fellow congressional Republicans as hypocrites on Tuesday for supporting President Trump's national-emergency declaration after repeatedly attacking the Obama administration's executive overreach.> GOP Rep Mike Simpson, on what’s different now from exec overreach by Obama: > “Nothing. I mean I’ll be real honest, if Obama had done this Republicans would be going nuts. That’s just the reality. Even if Obama had the authority to do it just like I think President Trump does.”> > — Erica Werner (@ericawerner) February 26, 2019Simpson's comments came ahead of a House vote on a resolution that would block Trump's national-emergency declaration. Simpson has previously criticized Trump's decision to declare a national emergency in response to congressional Democrats' refusal to provide the $ 5.7 he had demanded for a border wall.“It’s not the way to do it. I can understand why they’re looking at it,” Simpson told the Washington Post. “I don’t like the idea of pulling money out of defense and military construction and the Army Corps of Engineers. That’s not a good option.”Simpson has not, however, committed to backing the resolution blocking the emergency declaration. The resolution is expected to pass the House and Senate with the support of Republican representative Justin Amash of Michigan and Republican senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine.Trump has vowed to veto any attempt by Congress to end the national emergency, at which point congressional Democrats would have to secure two-thirds majorities in the House and Senate to override the veto.A number of other Republican lawmakers, including Senators Ben Sasse of Nebraska, John Cornyn of Texas, and Marco Rubio of Florida, have joined Simpson in criticizing the emergency declaration while refusing to support a resolution that would end it. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have endorsed the national-emergency declaration as an appropriate response to Democratic obstruction.
