The House of Representatives is "going to do everything we can lawfully to kill the Iranian agreement that this government, our government, made with this rogue regime in Iran," Rep. Ted Poe told Newsmax TV on Thursday.
"There are those of us in the House, we are ready for all legal options — and are even considering filing lawsuits to require that the president follow the law that he signed," the Texas Republican told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth.
Poe, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, was referring to legislation Obama signed in May that required him to present the entire nuclear agreement — including side deals — to Congress for review.
It was co-sponsored by Tennessee GOP Sen. Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin, the panel's ranking Democrat.
The House will vote Friday on whether Obama violated that law, along with taking an up-or-down vote on whether to accept or reject the deal with Tehran.
"You haven't given us all the information," Poe said of the president. "Give us all of the information."
"We want to see the other agreements. Already under the law, we have the right to see those agreements."
