Schumer Says Pressure Won't Influence His Vote on the Iranian Nuclear Deal

New York's senior senator, Chuck Schumer said Monday that he is "very seriously" studying the Iran nuclear deal brokered last month before deciding whether to endorse or oppose it.

"This is such an important decision that I will not let pressure, politics or party influence," said Schumer, the No. 3 Senate Democrat, who is poised to take over as Senate Democratic leader in 2016 from Harry Reid and is considered one of the most critical votes on the Iran deal.

Republicans staunchly oppose the agreement and may earn a nod of disapproval from some Democrats. How Schumer votes could influence others in his party, and he is coming under intense lobbying from the Obama administration to support the deal and from outside groups to oppose it.

Obama has to have enough Democrats supporting the deal to prevent opponents from reaching a veto-proof majority in the Senate.

"This is one of the most important decisions that I'll make," Schumer said Monday at a press conference on gun control legislation, noting that he's had over 20 briefings on the matter, including two classified briefings.

"I intend to continue that because this is such an important decision," Schumer said, though he declined to name the parties to whom he's spoken to about the deal. "I am studying it extremely carefully."
