"There's no question," Corker said. "If the nuke deal falls apart, then there will be more sanctions."
Republicans have signaled that they will take up a new Iran sanctions bill in January. Many Democrats, including the Obama administration, are opposed to new sanctions as the negotiations with Iran have continued.
Corker said that the bill would move "regular order" and not immediately.
When pushed on the timing of the legislation, he said: "We'll see."
