May 7 - Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today after the Senate, by a vote of 98-1,approved legislation giving Congress a chance to review a nuclear deal with Iran:

"This bill gives the Obama administration the tools it needs to use diplomacy to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. Unlike last month's unfortunate attempt by Senate Republicans to sabotage the diplomatic process, this bill provides a meaningful role for Congress without undermining diplomacy.

"President Obama should be congratulated for working with the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia and China to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon and attempting to avoid another never-ending war in the Middle East."
