Iran says that Congressional republicans tried to convince Iran to delay the release of American prisoners until after the election.

True? Who knows, but I don't see much reason for Iran to fabricate the story. Of course republican politicians will deny it, but who ever believed a politician?

Reminds me of the saying - How do you know when a politician is lying?

When his lips are moving.
