The Latest Senators move to act against Saudi Arabia

Taking to Twitter, PM Modi said, "Had a fruitful interaction with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud". The prince and Trump are attending the upcoming Group of 20 summit in Argentina.

Senior members of President Donald Trump's Cabinet urged US senators Wednesday not to downgrade ties with Saudi Arabia over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying it would harm national security and threaten Middle East stability.

President Donald Trump's administration is threatening to veto a Senate resolution that would halt US involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Bolton, Rogers added, "mishandled the notion that 'we're going to circle around the crown prince because we have this big strategic interest in continuing our strong relationship with Saudi Arabia.' in defense and intelligence".

His presence at the summit has been widely criticised amid global anger over the conflict in Yemen and the case of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

Khashoggi was killed in what USA officials have described as an elaborate plot at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, which he had visited for marriage paperwork.

Pompeo also urged senators to vote against the Yemen resolution, claiming the timing is bad because they are "on the cusp" of all parties coming to the table for a potential cease-fire.

The Senate is considering a vote on the resolution as soon as Wednesday. The administration "did not win any votes", he said, and there was a lot of frustration that CIA Director Gina Haspel did not attend.

Former House Intel Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) in a Thursday appearance on CNN slammed National Security Advisor John Bolton's refusal to listen to the tape of murdered Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying it reflected the administration's overall "mishandling" of the entire incident.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said he would insist on a briefing from Haspel, even threatening to withhold his vote on key measures if that didn't happen.

A similar resolution fell six votes short of passage earlier this year, but some senators apparently were ready to switch.

He said the crown prince "owns this death".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says "some kind of response" is needed from the United States for the Saudis' role in the gruesome death. On Tuesday, he said that "what obviously happened, as basically certified by the Central Intelligence Agency, is completely abhorrent to everything the United States holds dear and stands for in the world".
