40 DAYS UNTIL JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS TAKE THE OFFICE Oath

Parsi minced meat at Responsible Statecraft writes: House Dems join forces to support Iran’s nuclear deal:

Democratic congressional leaders send a message to President-elect Joe Biden “strongly endorsing” his promise to return to the Iranian nuclear deal without preconditions, said Gregory Meeks (DN.Y.), the new chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Relations Quincy Institute this week.

“We are sending a signal to our allies that America is coming back to the table!”

The letter first reported by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, was organized by the members of the whip team that secured support for the JCPOA in 2015 – Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Rep. Jan Schakowski (D-Ill.), Rep. David Price ( DN.C.) and Rep. Meeks, in addition to Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) and Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.). It opposes the Trump administration’s exit from the deal, arguing that a return to the deal will not only prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb, but also lay the “foundation for progress on other critical issues.”
