Senate Passes Resolution Condemning Saudi Crown Prince for Khashoggi Murder

HeadlineDec 14, 2018

In another vote related to Saudi Arabia, senators again rebuked Trump.

Sen. Bob Corker: “This is now unanimously. Unanimously, the United States Senate has said that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.”

That was Republican Senator Bob Corker, chair of the Foreign Relations Committee. President Trump and a number of top White House officials have refused to acknowledge Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s involvement in the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, despite the CIA concluding with “high confidence” that he was directly responsible for ordering the killing. Both Democratic and Republican senators have said for weeks they believe bin Salman is guilty. Khashoggi was a U.S. resident and columnist for The Washington Post. He was killed by Saudi agents after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

The Washington Post is running a full-page ad today calling for “meaningful action” to be taken over Khashoggi’s murder. The ad reads, “A life is gone. The principles of free expression endure.”
