The Senate professed back-to-back admonish of President Donald Trump’s clinch of Saudi Arabia, first voting to end US involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen and then not identically sanctioning a measure charging the Crown Prince of the Kingdom for the brutal murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Altogether, the dual actions manifest an interpreted rejection of Trump continued resistance of the Saudi confronting the CIA evaluation that presented the conclusion as Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman directed and tracked fully the brutal killing of Khashoggi inside the Saudi Consulate on 2nd October in Istanbul.
