In contrast to Trump, U.S. Senate votes against Saudi Arabia on Yemen, Khashoggi

Saturday 12:41 GMT

In back-to-back votes against Saudi Arabia, the U.S. Senate delivered an unusual rebuke of President Donald Trump’s response to the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and signalled new skepticism from Capitol Hill toward the longtime Middle East ally.

WATCH: Lindsey Graham says Trump is wrong about Saudi Arabia regarding Khashoggi case, Yemen war. Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who co-sponsored the Yemen resolution with Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, called passage a “historic moment.”. Lee said Khashoggi’s death focused attention “on the fact that we have been led into this civil war in Yemen half a world away” and “we’ve done so following the lead” of Saudi Arabia. “What the Khashoggi event did was to demonstrate, hey, maybe this isn’t a regime that we should just be following that eagerly into battle,” Lee said.
