Senators Seek Compromise on Amendments Before Yemen Debate

The journalist, who had lived for a time in the US and wrote for The Washington Post, had been critical of the Saudi regime. This week's Take Action Now offers ways to push legislators to defund the violence and help people who have been displaced by the conflict.
Moreover, the resolution criticises the crown prince's domestic policies, accusing him of frequently disregarding the rights of Saudi citizens "in an effort to consolidate his personal control over Saudi government decision-making". Graham wants to designate Mohammed bin Salman as complicit in the journalist's murder, stop arms sales to the country and now even opposes the Saudi war on Yemen.
Senators had wanted a briefing from Haspel about the CIA's assessment that bin-Salman was behind the killing but the Trump administration had sent instead secretaries of state and defence Mike Pompeo and James Mattis to bring them.
Rejecting President Donald Trump's efforts to play down the prince's role, Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker of Tennessee said Tuesday that if a jury were to consider a case against Prince Mohammed, he'd be convicted of murder in 30 minutes.
President Trump and members of his administration have dismissed the CIA's conclusion that the crown prince was behind Khashoggi's killing and have rejected taking action against the country.
"I would continue to recommend that we are not a participant in a civil war in Yemen and remain an honest procurer, if you will, with the ability to contribute to a diplomatic solution in Yemen", Dunford said in an interview with the Washington Post on Thursday.
Another senator, Bob Corker, told reporters, using the crown prince's initials: "I have zero question on my mind that the crown prince MBS ordered the killing".
"Not everything needs to be secret", the Connecticut Democrat tweeted.
Dunford added that if the United States policy toward Saudi Arabia changes, then military-to-military relationship will change as well. "We categorically reject any accusations purportedly linking the Crown Prince to this horrific incident".
"I think he's complicit in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi to the highest level possible", Graham said.
Senators who weren't invited to Tuesday's briefing, including Rand Paul of Kentucky, Chris Murphy of CT and Tim Kaine of Virginia, where Khashoggi lived, said more senators should also get the same briefing.
"Oh, there was much more information", Durbin said.
Some senators emphasized the need to find a balanced response.
Unconvinced by them and incensed by the administration's refusal to send the Central Intelligence Agency director to the hearing, Republicans and Democrats had joined hands to vote to bring to a legislative measure halting USA support to the Saudi-led ruling forces in Yemen fighting Iranian-backed Houthis. While Saudi contributions may be important to individual research projects, they make up a sliver of the university's overall $3.3 billion annual operating budget - which would amount to an estimated $11 million - Lester said.

Trump told reporters last month that Nauert was "excellent", adding, "She's been a supporter for a long time". If Nauert is confirmed by the Senate, she would be a leading administration voice on Trump's foreign policy.
