Senators Say ’Zero Question’ Saudi Prince Complicit in Murder
After C.I.A. Director Gina Haspel’s briefing Tuesday, leading Republican senators are reportedly convinced of Mohammad bin Salman’s involvement in journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in October. Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker said there was “zero question” and Sen. Lindsay O. Graham said the U.S. should come down on MBS like a “ton of bricks,” adding he could no longer support arms sales to Saudi Arabia. Last week cabinet members urged senators to vote down proposals to pull U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.
