Democratic Rep. Steve Israel On Iran Deal: "Concerns Escalated After The First Reading"


MIKE BRZEZINSKI: So I appreciate that you're going to take more time with it... Is there anything upon the first reading that seems like a dealbreaker for you?

STEVE ISRAEL (D-New York): There are some concerns that actually have escalated after my first reading. One, the issue of the lifting of sanctions, and the embargo on conventional arms and missiles, I don't know why we are doing that and I don't want to empower Iran, make it easier for Iran to equip Hamas, Hezbollah and other bad actors. Two, the verification process... It seems as if Iran actually has three weeks or more to determine whether they will allow IAEA inspectors onto specific sites. That is a far cry from what I understood to be "anywhere any time."
