The US Senate professed a rare and strong berates to the US President Donald Trump on the controversial issues of Saudi Arabia, voting for ending the military support of US for the war in Yemen and charging the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman for the brutal assassination of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The votes were entirely illustrative because to become resolutions and law would have to approve the House of Representatives whose Republican leaders have prevented any ordinances deliberated to berate the Saudis. In a historic move, the Senators voted 56-41 to finish the military support of US for the Saudi-directed alliance in the civil war of Yemen. The dispute has killed tens of thousands of people and produced what the United Nations refers to the direct human crisis of the world, with the country on the edge of the feminine.
For the first time, either group of Congress had supported a resolution to extract US forces from a military engagement under the War Powers Act. That law, sanctioned in 1973, limits the ability of the President to accomplish US forces to the prospective rancors without the approval of Congress. Seven fellow Republicans of Trump joined Senate Democrats to support the measure. Urgently, after the voting in Yemen, the Senate produced a resolution charging Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman for the murder of Khashoggi and urging that Saudi Arabia hold accountable anyone liable for his death.
Being a US resident Khashoggi was also a contributor and columnist of the Washington Post, was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October. The Senate vote, which was unidentifiable, pushes pressure on House leaders to allocate a vote on the resolution of Khashoggi in this month before the Congress postpones for the year.
The Republican Senator, as well as Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and sponsor of the resolution Bob Corker, said, “Unanimously, the United States Senate has said that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. That is a strong statement. I think it speaks to the values that we hold dear”.
