Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said on Monday evening that he is planning to introduce a resolution that would name Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman as “responsible” for the death of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi.
“It holds MBS responsible for the killing. …That’s a strong statement by Republicans,” Corker said, asked about the resolution. “A strong denouncing of a crown prince and holding them responsible for the murder of a journalist. It’s a pretty strong statement for the United States Senate to be making, assuming we can get a vote on it.”
Corker is hoping to bypass the committee process on Tuesday and place the resolution directly on the Senate calendar. The procedural leapfrogging would make his non-binding resolution available for, but doesn’t guarantee, a vote on the Senate floor.
