Central Intelligence Agency chief Haspel to brief US Senate leaders on Khashoggi's death

U.S. senators more certain than ever Saudi crown prince was behind Khashoggi killing

"You have to balance all of those considerations as we move forward on this". The Senate ultimately passed that measure by a very wide margin, and debate on the resolution itself is expected to begin soon.

Graham, who led the bipartisan call for the White House to allow Haspel to brief lawmakers after she was reportedly barred from a briefing last week, said bin Salman's role in Khashoggi's assassination disqualified him as a potential diplomatic partner to the U.S.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a staunch ally of Trump, supports a Senate rebuke of the Saudi government, despite the Trump administration's reluctance to do it. Human rights groups say the war is wreaking havoc on the country and subjecting civilians to indiscriminate bombing.

"This is yet another instance of Stewart attempting to act as an apologist for Donald Trump, and the result is once against absolutely horrific", Thomas said.

"MBS, the crown prince, is a wrecking ball". Graham voted in favor of the resolution.

"If the Saudi government is going to be in the hands of this man for a long time to come, I find it very diffiult to be able to do business because I think he's insane".

"No response is certainly not appropriate", McConnell said at a Wall Street Journal event.

"I went in believing the crown prince was directly responsible or at least complicit in this and my feelings were strengthened by the information we were given", Durbin said.

Corker also suggested that the briefing last week, which featured Pompeo and Mattis but not Haspel, was entirely misleading.

Sen. Bob Corker says a jury would find the Saudi crown prince 'in about 30 minutes.'

"Every senator should hear what I heard this afternoon", Durbin said.

Graham voted for a resolution last week that would cancel USA support for Saudi Arabia's involvement in the civil war in Yemen.

Khashoggi was killed two months ago.

Some lawmakers were angry Haspel did not participate in a Senate briefing by Trump administration officials last week on Khashoggi's death at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

That reluctance to blame the crown prince has enraged some Republicans. The kingdom implicated some of the crown prince's associates in the murder and Saudi authorities later detained several high-ranking officials. "Maybe he did and maybe he didn't!". He has touted Saudi arms deals worth billions of dollars to the USA and recently thanked Saudi Arabia for plunging oil prices.

"The views that I had before have only solidified", said senator Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee. "And at the same time what is protecting United States interests?" "After all, someone's got to do it".

Senator Corker said it would be "difficult" to come up with legislation that could pass the Senate. He said finding a compromise will be hard because some lawmakers don't want to tie Yemen to the Khashoggi killing. He said he had been briefed about the highly indicting Central Intelligence Agency investigation comprising audio evidence but would not to listen to the audio because "it's a suffering tape, it's a bad tape".

The Saudi government and President Donald Trump's administration have defended the monarch, with the president and his top officials disputing reports that the Central Intelligence Agency found him guilty.
