Senators introduce bipartisan resolution to blame Saudi Arabia for Jamal Khashoggi's death

Saudi ambassador brother of crown prince returns to Washington

US intelligence officials have said that the murder was carried out by agents of the Saudi government and ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Corker added that the prince "ordered, monitored, the killing" of the father of four. If he were in front of a jury, "he would have a unanimous verdict in about 30 minutes".

Khashoggi, a USA resident, was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2.

"The worldwide community seems to doubt Saudi Arabia" commitment to prosecute this heinous crime. But others, such as Graham, favour a broader measure that ceases arms sales to Saudi Arabia and slaps sanctions against all those responsible, including the crown prince.

At last week's hearing, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defence Secretary James Mattis told senators there was no direct evidence of the crown prince's involvement in Khashoggi's death.

Senator Richard Shelby, Republican of Alabama and the Appropriations Committee Chairman, echoed that "all evidence points to that, that all this leads back to the crown prince".

Sean Penn is making a documentary about the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish media reports. "That might be the real policy question".

He was one of 37 Republicans who voted against advancing a nonbinding resolution last week to end USA support for the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen.

After offering numerous contradictory explanations, Riyadh later said Khashoggi had been killed and his body dismembered when negotiations to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia failed. "I'm not going to blow past this", he said. "I don't think that ultimately saves lives in the way that the underlying bill does". "I think there's a lot of interest in trying to push aside amendments to get to the final vote as quickly as possible on our side of the aisle, and you know, all we need is a little support from Republicans".

Sen. Bob Corker's comments were an equally scathing rebuke of Trump.

Watch Graham's full response to the briefing below.

The resolution was introduced by Republicans Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and Todd Young and Democrats Dianne Feinstein, Ed Markey and Christopher Coons.

But after Tuesday's Central Intelligence Agency briefing, Republican Sen.

Prince Khalid's plane touched down at Dulles International Airport in Washington on Wednesday about three hours before the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush, NBC News reported, citing sources.

"Oh, there was much more information", Durbin said.

Graham later agreed with the sentiment, tweeting, "On this, I stand with Rand!".

Senators in the coming week are likely to consider a resolution that would restrict USA support for the Saudi military campaign in Yemen, which has contributed to a humanitarian disaster.

Saudi Arabia has detained 21 people and says it is seeking the death penalty for five of them. "That's what the Senate needs help on, and I am open to all suggestions on how to do that".

But the White House's decision to make Haspel available-though only to a small group of recalcitrant senators-has backfired again, since it whetted the appetite of more senators for a briefing of their own. Senators on both sides of the aisle do not want this issue to go away without a fight.
