investigation in a thorough way there's growing pressure in congress and on congress to take action against saudi arabia house speaker the third most important republican in the country paul ryan says they have the tools to act we have laws for this we recently passed the magnitsky act which is a man who was killed in prison in a russian prison so we have sanction laws on the books the number of high profile withdrawals from an important study business conference continues to increase the head of the international monetary fund the latest to join the growing boy court donald trump says he expects a food report by the end of the week an indication the americans are keen to get this incident of the huge drug between two allies behind them as quickly as possible. obviously the washington. speculation grows over donald trump's possible conflict of interest in saudi arabia group of democratic senators want him to disclose any financial ties with the kingdom so let's go to mike hanna for more on
8:58 am
that in washington d.c. so put this in some sort of perspective and explain what is the basis that they're using to request this information like. well the group of democrat senators have sent that letter to president trump asking him to reveal all business ties he might have with saudi arabia over the past decade in that letter they mention a lot of connections that they have been pointing out that president trump has sold apartments to saudi businessmen he's even sold his yacht they also mentioned that president trump himself boasted back in two thousand and fifteen about his connection with saudi businessmen and his sale of apartments to them the situation though is that this is part of the effort by democrat senators to get clear decision making within the white house that is not obscured by any form of linkage that the trumpet ministration might up with saudi arabia the background to this
8:59 am

9:00 am
indeed inside russia but the legal basis of this letter by democrats well to put quite bluntly it has no legal basis whatsoever is in effect a request by the democrat senators but it's also part of this ongoing divide between the administration and those within congress these democrat congresses senators are sending the message that they are concerned about president trump's decision. to take decisions without bias toward saudi arabia now this just came from democrats but this also being concerns expressed by republican senators and republicans in the house about the situation with saudi arabia so the division between the administer.
