Corker wants to stop support for Saudia Arabia
U.S. Senator Bob Corker Republican of Tennessee, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, voted along with 62 other senators Wednesday to recommend that Saudia Arabia be held accountable for the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The resolution is in response to President Donald Trump who has refused to criticize Saudia Arabia for the killing inside it's consulate in Turkey. Corker went onto the Senate floor to express his displeasure with the administration's response; ďWe had a briefing today that was very unsatisfactory, but [given] by two people I highly respect. Secretary Mattis and Secretary Pompeo are two people that I work closely with and admire greatly. I found their briefing today to be lacking. I found that in substance weíre not doing those things that we should be doing to appropriately balance our relationship with Saudi Arabia between our American interests and our American values. Thereís been a lot of rhetoric thatís come from the White House and from the State Department on this issue. The rhetoric that Iíve heard and the broadcasts that weíve made around the world as to who we are have been way out of balance as it relates to American interests and American values. ďAs to whether the Crown Prince was involved in this killing, itís my belief that he was. Itís my belief that he ordered it. I donít have a smoking gun. But what I do know is that he is responsible for this agency that carried out the killing. He has done nothing to show ownership over what has happened. And that is an affront, not just to the American people, but it's an affront to the world.
