'Not a Smoking Gun...A Smoking Saw': Senators Convinced on Khashoggi Killing

US Senators Bring Resolution calling Saudi Crown Prince ‘Complicit’ in Jamal Khashoggi's murder

The administration has sanctioned 17 Saudis expected to involved, but lawmakers are demanding much more serious consequences.

Ahmed said that it was no longer possible to unring the bell that removed Mohammed bin Nayef as Saudi heir presumptive in June 2017 and that November saw 11 rival princes and dozens of businessmen and officials kidnapped and placed in Riyadh's Ritz Carlton Hotel in what amounted to a coup d'etat of sorts.

"But at the same time, it's sort of hard to call this a cover up given the fact that everybody in that briefing last week knew that Pompeo and Mattis were misleading us, knew there was no way this murder happened without the consent and direction of MBS".

Turkey is seeking to arrest two former aides to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who were dismissed amid the fallout from the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. He complained that the "deep state" was blocking him from important information. "There's no way in the world those individuals came out and lied because they didn't". The senator agreed with preserving the U.S. -Saudi alliance, but said Salman is testing the limits of what America is willing to accept. He's also argued its unknowable whether Khashoggi was involved.

WASHINGTON: The Saudi ambassador to the United States Khalid bin Salman, brother of the powerful crown prince, has returned to Washington after leaving the U.S. capital in the wake of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, an official said Wednesday.

Three GOP lawmakers have voiced their own conclusions since a separate classified briefing on Tuesday. He made a statement that MBS would be "convicted in 30 minutes", if he went in front of jury and, again, pointed out that the difference between the Central Intelligence Agency briefing and the Pompeo/Mattis briefing was like the "difference between darkness and sunshine", per WaPo.

Haspel delivered a closed-door briefing on the Khashoggi murder to Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Foreign Relations, Armed Services and Appropriations committees on Tuesday morning.

"I'm neither excusing it, I'm making an observation".

Tom Brady jokes about retiring after hitting major rushing milestone

"While I will not discuss the content of the Haspel briefing, it reinforced the need for a strong response to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi", the New York Democrat said.

Jamal Khashoggi was killed in the Saudi consulate in Turkey.

Corker suggested that President Donald Trump had condoned the murder of a journalist by refusing to condemn the Saudi crown prince. You'd have to be "willfully blind" to not conclude Mohammed was responsible, he said.

"There's a consensus among a lot of us that we want to suspend arms sales and stop support for the war - how do you best do that?" said Sen. "As to Pompeo and Mattis, I have great respect for them".

CFO for Huawei Technologies arrested in Vancouver, sought for extradition
Canada, Australia and New Zealand were among the nations to ban the use of Huawei's equipment due to security concerns. Officials for the Canadian and US Justice Departments did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


"And the second thing is what is in the best interest of the United States and this is a very, very hard challenge because we have to, on one hand, hold them accountable, including the crown prince, for whatever action he may be involved with", the Utah congressman said. Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn told CNN that Haspel should not come back and brief the whole Senate as senators on both sides have demanded.
