Republican Sen. Mike Lee: ‘Next Congress’ Will Likely ‘Look Into’ Motive Behind Trump’s Decision-Making On Saudi Arabia
After embraces and smiles from allies in the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt this week, the powerful crown prince did not receive such a warm welcome in Tunis: at least 200 people gathered in the city centre on Monday night the day before scheduled talks with the Tunisian president, Beji Caid Essebsi.
In Tunis, he is expected to hold talks with the country's president and prime minister.
"MBS contributed to murdering somebody overseas and it is not strength to sort of mumble past that", Sasse told "Fox News Sunday", referring to the crown prince.
This is despite condemning evidence from the Central Intelligence Agency that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination. After offering numerous contradictory explanations, Riyadh said last month that Khashoggi had been killed and his body dismembered when negotiations to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia failed.
Saudi Arabia wants to work more closely with Russian Federation in the fields of nuclear energy and oil, describing it as beneficial for the whole world.
In Graham's statement to Axios, however, the Senator seems to oppose Trump'sstatement standing behind Saudi Arabia, telling Swan about the relationship with the Crown Prince, "We can not have a normal strategic relationship with somebody this insane".
The crown prince has found a backer in President Donald Trump, who has called the Khashoggi murder abhorrent but stressed binSalman's denials of complicity as well as the interdependent economic relationship between the us and Saudi Arabia.
The crown prince - also known by his initials, MBS - arrived in Tunisia on Tuesday evening as part of a regional tour as he makes his way to the G20 summit set to take place in Argentina on Friday.
The president cast doubt on the CIA assessment that the prince ordered Khashoggi's killing, telling reporters the agency had not formed a definitive conclusion.
The crown prince heads to a Group of 20 summit in Argentina this week amid global pressure over the killing.
In Cairo, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi praised the "unshakable strategic alliance between Egypt and Saudi Arabia" during Prince Mohammed's visit there, the state daily Al-Ahram reported Tuesday.
"American people and our involvement in this war", said the senator.
If reports about the CIA's intelligence are true, the SC senator said "everything would be on the table" for punishment-including the end to President Donald Trump's acclaimed arms deal-as "we can not have a normal strategic relationship with somebody this insane".
The kingdom's public prosecutor is seeking the death penalty for five suspects charged in the murder, but has said Prince Mohammed had no prior knowledge of the operation.
USA judge sides with CNN, rules against White House
CNN reports that a federal judge ruled in its favor Friday by ordering the White House to reinstate Acosta's press pass. Ted Boutrous, an outside attorney representing CNN , said "This is a great day for the First Amendment and journalism".
I answered Mueller questions 'very easily'
Even as Trump mused in the West Wing about making staffing changes, he pushed back against media coverage of his recent setbacks. He said some were "unnecessary", some were "possible traps" and that "we might consider some as irrelevant".
