A bipartisan group of senators, led by close Trump ally Republican Lindsey Graham, introduced a measure that would blame Saudi Arabia for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The resolution, which is mainly symbolic, says Saudi Arabia’s crown prince is “complicit” in the killing.
Graham and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced the resolution, which says that the Senate has a “high level of confidence” that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was “complicit” in the murder. It says Saudi Arabia should be held accountable for “contributing to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, the blockade of Qatar, the jailing of political dissidents within Saudi Arabia, the use of force to intimidate rivals, and the abhorrent and unjustified killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The resolution follows a closed-door briefing on Capitol Hill with CIA director Gina Haspel. Haspel briefed a handful of senators Tuesday about U.S. intelligence related to Khashoggi’s murder. After the briefing, lawmakers said they were even more confident that the Saudi crown prince was directly involved in the brutal assassination.

There’s no doubt the Saudi crown prince was complicit in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. This barbaric murder in a diplomatic facility must be met with the strongest condemnation. I urge the president to review all the intelligence, including the tape, and forcefully respond.
