Obama wrote a law, violated it and says he is confident he has the authority to do so. Secretary of State John Kerry says the same. Some “Senior” unnamed “Officials see a “conflict” –– as in a conflict with existing law. Fox News’ James Rosen has this story. The video transcript is below.

This from Rosen’s print piece:

At issue is a passage tucked away in ancillary paperwork attached to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, as the Iran nuclear deal is formally known.
