Wary of Iran's nuclear intentions, senators are predicting a bipartisan push for fresh penalties and increased leverage against Tehran despite administration opposition.

Lawmakers also are waiting to hear directly from Secretary of State John Kerry about the latest round of talks that failed to produce a deal.

He said that U.S. experts are engaged in the talks. In his words, "we are not blind, and I don't think we're stupid.
