White House decries lawmakers’ effort to derail Iran talks

The White House on Monday denounces efforts by Republican lawmakers to “throw sand in the gears” of sensitive talks over Iran’s nuclear program as “partisan.”

Spokesman Josh Earnest said a letter by 47 Republicans, including Senate leaders and several potential 2016 presidential candidates, to discourage Iran’s leaders was not the role US founding fathers envisaged for the legislative branch.
