Breitbart: In an interview with the Jerusalem Post, Senator and presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke about the current wave of violence in Israel and its connection to the Iranian nuclear deal, which Cruz remains determined to halt.
Cruz expressed disappointment with the Republican leadership in Congress for failing to take actions he proposed for blocking the Iran nuclear deal. He mentioned a letter he wrote to Senate Majority LeaderSen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH), in which he noted that the full deal was not submitted to Congress as required by the Congressional Review Act, making it illegal for the Administration to begin lifting sanctions against Iranian entities.
Knowing that such legal niceties mean little to President Obama, Cruz wanted congressional leaders to “make abundantly clear to each of the banks that are in possession of the frozen billions of dollars that whether or not Obama chooses to disregard or ignore federal law does not exonerate those banks from the obligation to follow binding federal statutes.” He wanted to advise the banks they would be held liable for releasing money to Iran in response to Administration decrees that ran contrary to federal law.
