Senate headed for clash over Saudi Arabia

The Hill - 12-02


The Senate is barreling toward a floor brawl over how to respond to Saudi Arabia's role in the slaying of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Senators took a significant step this week advancing a bipartisan resolution to end U.S. support for the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen, marking a sharp break from President Trump , who has stood by Riyadh and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, even in the face of reports that the prince personally ordered Khahoggi’s death.
