Saudi Arabia Pumps All-Time Record Amount of Oil Amid Pressure From Washington

Republican Sen. Mike Lee: ‘Next Congress’ Will Likely ‘Look Into’ Motive Behind Trump’s Decision-Making On Saudi Arabia

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi greeted the heir to the Saudi throne at the airport in Cairo when he arrived from Bahrain after a visit to the United Arab Emirates.

In a previous statement, Graham also said that the Crown Prince is "toxic" to U.S. - Saudi relations. Fortunately we have a USA intelligence community that's really good at a lot of us in the first branch of government, the article one branch, the Congress, have heard from the intelligence community and I will be getting another classified briefing on Tuesday about this.

Ernst was asked if Trump gave Saudi Arabia a pass.

The writ presented by Human Rights Watch was received at the court of federal judge Ariel Lijo, who forwarded it to federal prosecutor Ramiro González.

Saudi Arabia "is not an ally that deserves this kind of military intervention, especially because there's been no connection between the safety of the American people and our involvement in this war", he said.

A team of 15 Saudis flew to Istanbul, Turkey, on government aircraft in early October and killed Khashoggi, who had been living in self-imposed exile from the kingdom in Virginia, inside the Saudi consulate, where he had come to pick up documents that he needed for his planned marriage to a Turkish woman.

"It is a grave mistake for the President to ignore the CIA's widely reported assessment on the Khashoggi murder", Collins, also a member of the Intelligence Committee, wrote on Twitter.

"If there are indicators that the prince was involved in this murder, then we need absolutely to consider further action", Sen.

"It telegraphs to despots around the world they can murder people with impunity and that this president will have their back as long as they praise him, as long as they do business with him potentially, " Schiff added. "So I would tend to be with my colleagues on this issue, understanding Saudi Arabia's great strategic importance to us. I will tell you this: The crown prince hates it more than I do, and they have vehemently denied it", Trump told reporters from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where he spent the Thanksgiving holiday.

Democrats intend to probe US President Donald Trump's financial ties to determine whether they are the "hidden hand" driving US foreign policy on Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia, the incoming chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said on Sunday (Nov 25).

The Senate is expected to take up a bill this week from Lee and Sen. Trump announced last week that the USA would continue to back the kingdom, despite reported Central Intelligence Agency conclusions linking the crown prince to Khashoggi's demise. According to sources cited by Reuters, the crown prince wishes to avoid confrontation with Washington, including on oil prices.

"I think others will also have responsibility of looking at: Are there financial entanglements with the Gulf?"
