Sen. Chuck Schumer: 'I Don't Trust These Iranians'

As one of the Senate's leading supporters of Israel, Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer said Sunday he is interested in hearing what Israeli Prime Minister has to say to a join session of Congress on Tuesday.

Many Democrats are angry that Republican House Speaker John Boehner invited Netanyahu to talk about the Iranian nuclear threat without first consulting Democratic leadership or the White House.

Story continues below.


But Schumer, appearing on "The Cats Roundtable" on New York's AM 970  Sunday said the bigger issue is avoiding an Iran with nuclear weapons.

"There has to be a really tough inspection regime, because I don’t trust these Iranians," Schumer told host John Catsimatidis. "And then how deep can we push sanctions if the Iranians won’t go along with a good deal?"

Schumer said the tiff over Netanyahu's speech is temporary and that America's relationship with Israel is sacrosanct.

While it is no secret that the White House is unhappy with how the address came about, "all the name-calling and finger-pointing about that is much less important than two things: Making sure that Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon … and affirming the strength of the American-Israel relationship."

Iran, he said wants to dominate the Middle East and is on the list of terrorist nations.

"Iran has caused the death, directly or indirectly, of hundreds of Americans [through] terrorist acts," he said.
