Pence Telling Congressional Leaders That Trump Will Announce Withdrawal

Vice President Pence is notifying Congressional leaders that the President will be announcing the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, according to a senior congressional source.

Trump’s final decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal was made over the weekend, according to a person familiar with the discussions, though it was long considered a foregone conclusion inside the White House.

National security adviser John Bolton said he was committed to providing all options to Trump and offered a variety of paths, including reimposing all sanctions, applying new sanctions or allowing for more time to negotiate with the Europeans.
