republican colleagues have warned that his failure to punish the kingdom will have dangerous consequences roslyn jordan has this update from washington d.c. . the murder of jamal khashoggi the washington post columnist may not be resonating with ordinary americans but for their representatives in the u.s. congress this is very much a controversy that is top of mind the hill newspaper is reporting that the entire senate is going to get a briefing in the coming week perhaps from the secretary of state like pompei zero and the defense secretary jim mattis about the u.s. his relationship with saudi arabia apparently this briefing is going to take a look at everything from how the white house is not accepting the cia's determination that murder was done at the behest of the saudi crown prince mohammed bin solemn on it's also going to be taking a look at the financial relationship between the united states and saudi arabia and
3:07 am
it's going to be taking a look at the national security relationship between the two countries especially when light of the ongoing civil war in yemen one in which the saudis have been accused of violating the human rights of civilians in that war torn country by bombing civilian targets under the pretense of going after the fighters who want to take control of the government this hearing could possibly be made public because it's a opportunity for the general public to listen to senators question these two cabinet members but the real import of this potential hearing is that it would give the senators both democratic and republican more ammunition on deciding how to hold saudi arabia accountable not just for its conduct in the yemeni civil war but just as important for the murder of jamal khashoggi both republicans and democrats have been extremely critical of riyadh because of the murder and they say that it is not
3:08 am
for the united states to be giving any sort of political or diplomatic cover to a country that would go out and willingly target and then murder some. and that he considers a threat to its ongoing a political rule this is also a situation where the members of congress are going to find themselves pretty much in a fight with the white house the u.s. president donald trump has insisted that saudi arabia's importance in jail pill political affairs is much more important than trying to hold its leadership accountable for the murder of jamal khashoggi the president has even been dismissive of the cia's conclusions saying that it's more of a feeling than actual analysis that's not sitting well with members of the senate and certainly not with members of the house so not only is there a potential big hearing coming in the coming days on capitol hill but there will
