Senate GOP suggests Iran talks have failed

Senate Republicans are turning up the pressure on President Obama to walk away from Iran nuclear talks after negotiators extended the deadline for a second time.
The State Department said the talks will be extended until Friday, after the original deadline of June 30 was pushed until July 7.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) called the decision to extend the talks for a second time “just another sign that it is time for President Obama to walk away from the table,” calling the ongoing talks a “diplomatic charade.”
Rubio, a 2016 presidential contender, added that Obama “should level” with Americans “and admit that Iran’s government is not negotiating in good faith.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who is also running for president, said separately in a statement that “it is time for the Obama administration walk away [suspending talks] and make clear that we will never list sanctions until Iran is fully ready to abandon its nuclear program.”
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the Senate’s majority whip, said that while senators are “anxiously awaiting news” from the talks, the potential deal “doesn’t look particularly promising.”
