7:05 am
director of the cia with the secretary of state it so was then he was waiting for the information about what exactly happened before taking a decision about what to do next well since then there's been silence from the white house just a single statement coming out saying that the matter was still being considered but finally president trump had this to say in the course of today. president trumper of days of silence on jamal khashoggi death after being on asked whether he felt betrayed by the salvi denial of responsibility for it not a great you know i just hope that it all works out we have a lot of back we have a lot of things that we've been with you that there betrayed me maybe they betrayed themselves love to see how it all turned. the national security adviser also having his say as we expect there to be accountability for what happened which was which was criminal without any question and they have promised to do that and they have gone
7:06 am
a long way already and we'll see what the next steps are and more pressure from congress for tangible action to be taken a group of republican senators to send to letter to the president demanding that civilian nuclear talks with saudi arabia be suspended the senate has already sent the president a formal letter invoking the global magnitsky act this insists that the president investigate the murder and impose sanctions should accountability be established the act gives the president four months in which to act but in a follow up letter a bipartisan group of pos representatives has insisted that the investigation be concluded as quickly as possible. threatened legislation can only come after the midterm elections congress is in recess until then but regardless of the election result president trump will then have to face up to a congress that is angry and it's an anger that in this case is shared across party
7:07 am
divide by congress have been questioning saudi arabia's accounts of the. murder of a few weeks ago there's talk of maybe possible sanctions against saudi arabia but it seems very little action will there be any kind of sanction on saudi arabia. well the mood in congress is extremely dark and extremely angry on this issue president trump has said time after time that he's reluctant to impose any sanctions that he wants to preserve the working relationship he has with the saudi leadership very critical to his foreign policy and certainly to his economic policy as well but the congress has made very clear and the important fact is that since republicans and democrats in congress that they do not buy the saudi explanations that if the accountability is established sanctions must be found in fact many members of congress both republican and democrat are going even further and saying
7:08 am
they will pressure the president to impose sanctions to force saudi compliance with the request to give full information now as i said they be in recess but when congress gets back they are going to be moves to move legislation both in the house of representatives and in the senate in an effort to continue to put pressure to bear on president trump to establish some kind of accountability and take some kind of action over there as mike hanna reporting live there from washington like many things in the u.k. there's growing pressure on three's amaze government to stop selling weapons to saudi arabia on wednesday foreign secretary jeremy hunt faced the foreign affairs select committee where he was grueling about sunday's response to the show she's death journal whole reports from london. britain's chief diplomat of course it was a pretty diplomatic encounter but jeremy hunt certainly didn't deny that britain was carefully weighing its options here weighing its response in light of emerging
