Central Intelligence Agency director to brief senators on Khashoggi killing

Corker called on US President Donald Trump to strongly condemn Saudi Arabia for the journalist's murder and make sure that those responsible are held accountable, Reuters reported. "I think he is risky, and he has put the relationship at risk".

"You have to be willfully blind not to come to the conclusion that this was orchestrated and organized by people under the command of MBS", the senator said, referring to the crown prince.

"The views that I had before have only solidified", said Senator Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who has called for a strong US reaction to Khashoggi's death and backs legislation to end all USA support for the Saudi coalition waging war in Yemen.

"I would really question someone's judgment if they couldn't figure this out", Graham continued.

The briefing will take place on Tuesday at 11:00 am (1600 GMT), Senator Bob Corker told journalists, after the Central Intelligence Agency failed to take part when Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis spoke to senators on the issue last week.

Sen. Bob Corker says a jury would find the Saudi crown prince 'in about 30 minutes.'

"I'm not going to blow past this", he said.

Paul was not allowed in the Tuesday briefing, which was limited to relevant committee chairmen and select other participants.

U.S. media reports say the Central Intelligence Agency has evidence he exchanged messages with Saud al-Qahtani, who allegedly oversaw the murder. Senators have moved to punish Saudi Arabia by advancing legislation to curtail USA backing for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Turkish investigators allege Khashoggi was tortured before he was murdered by Saudi officials in the country's consulate in Istanbul. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said that he couldn't even have asked for an invitation to the briefing because he only found out about it from the media.

"No response is certainly not appropriate", McConnell said at a Wall Street Journal event.
