Senate votes to rebuke Saudi crown prince after Khashoggi murder

Senate votes to rebuke Saudi crown prince after Khashoggi murder


CHARLES. CHARLES: CHARLES, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. PETER DOOCY. CONNELL: WE BRING IN PETER BROOKS, TO TALK MORE ABOUT THIS. HERITAGE SENIOR FELLOW AND FORMER DEPUTY SECRETARY OF DEFENSE. GOOD TO SEE YOU IN NEW YORK.>>YES. CONNELL: TO FOLLOW UP ON PETER DOOCY’S REPORTING, A COUPLE QUESTIONS, WANT TO TALK ABOUT OIL, WHICH IS OUR INTEREST. HE SAYS, WELL, WE DON’T WANT TO SEE ANY ROCKING THE BOAT, IF WE’RE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. SEEMS TO ME THE SENATE ROCKS THE BOAT A LITTLE BIT WITH THIS.>>CERTAINLY DOES. THIS IS LAME-DUCK CONGRESS. A NEW CONGRESS COMING IN NEXT YEAR. THERE ARE A BUNCH OF THINGS GOING ON HERE. THEY’RE UNHAPPY ABOUT WHAT THE ADMINISTRATION DONE ABOUT THE CARBON DIOXIDE MURDER. CONNELL: RIGHT.>>THEY’RE UNHAPPY ABOUT THE WAR IN YEMEN. THEY’RE ALSO HAPPY, IF YOU HEARD BERNIE SANDERS TALKING ABOUT THE WAR POWERS RESOLUTION. THEY HAVE BEEN SAYING CONGRESS HAS TO GIVE THE PRESIDENT AUTHORIZATION TO USE FORCE INVOLVED WITH THE YEMEN WAR. CONNELL: RIGHT.>>THERE IS A LOT OF COMPLICATED ISSUES. CONNELL: WHAT ARE THE ODDS AS THEY PUSH IT FORWARD THEY CAN GET TO PETER DOOCY’S POINT, THIS VETO-PROOF MAJORITY THAT WOULD FORCE THE PRESIDENT TO ACT HERE?>>THIS IS JUST A RESOLUTION, A NON-BINDING RESOLUTION A SENSE OF THE SENATE SAYING WE’RE UNHAPPY ABOUT THIS. THIS SENDS A SIGNAL TO THE WHITE HOUSE WE WANT TO YOU DO SOME THINGS ABOUT IT, OTHERWISE WE MAY DO SOMETHING. I THINK THAT COMES UP IN THE NEXT CONGRESS. RIGHT NOW THE HOUSE WILL NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE SENATE RESOLUTION. NEXT CONGRESS IN JANUARY, WHEN DEMOCRAT-LED CONGRESS THEY MAY FEEL VERY STRONGLY, BE ABLE TO COME TO SOME SORT OF A AGREEMENT WITH A REPUBLICAN-LED SENATE TRYING TO FORCE THE PRESIDENT’S HAND, SENDING HIM A BILL, AS OPPOSED TO RESOLUTION. CONNELL: IF YOU’RE ADVISING THE PRESIDENT, AND WE ALREADY HEARD WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT IT, IT IS INTERESTING, ANOTHER STORY HAD BLOOMBERG EARLIER ABOUT OIL, SAYING SAUDI ARABIA PLANS TO TARGET THE U.S. WITH WHAT WE’RE DESCRIBED AS SHARP EXPORT CUTS. NOW PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN VERY CLEAR, HE WAS SUPPORTIVE OF SAUDI ARABIA, EVEN GOING AGAINST HIS OWN PARTY TO DO SO, BUT VERY CLEAR, HEY, KEEP THE OIL FLOWING, KEEP PRICES LOW. THIS SEEMS TO BE THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF THE SAUDIS WHAT THE PRESIDENT WAS CALLING FOR SO NOW WHAT DOES THE PRESIDENT DO?>>THIS IS SPECULATION, SAUDIS COULD SHOW SOME PIQUE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN THE SENATE. CONNELL: WHAT DO YOU MEAN?>>THEY’RE UNHAPPY BY THIS RESOLUTION. CONNELL: THEY’RE REALLY STICKING IT TO THE PRESIDENT.>>THEY ARE STICKING IT TO THE PRESIDENT. THE PRESIDENT MAY HAVE TO MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS BECAUSE OF THIS. THEY’RE ALSO IN CAHOOTS WITH THE RUSSIANS. REMEMBER THIS GOES BACK A WEEK OR AGO, WHERE THEY MET WITH THE RUSSIANS. THEY TALKED ABOUT BOTH, ABOUT OIL PRICES WHICH IS IMPORTANT TO EACH ONE OF THEM. IT COULD FORCE THE PRESIDENT’S HAND TO GET TOUGHER WITH SAUDI ARABIA ON THIS ISSUE, BECAUSE IT MAY, GAS PRICES MAY GO UP. CONNELL: WOULD YOU GO FAR TO SAY IT SHOULD FORCE THE PRESIDENT’S HAND? WHAT WOULD BE HIS MOTIVATION NOT TO ACT IF THEY BASICALLY SAID TO HIM IN NOT SO MANY WORDS, HEY, LISTEN, WE’LL PUT THIS RIGHT BACK IN YOUR FACE, WE’LL NOT LISTEN TO WHAT YOU WANT US TO DO?>>FIRST OF ALL THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP. WE’RE DEALING WITH HEINOUS CRIME. THIS IS COMPLICATED. THERE IS A LOT OF SIGNAL HERE IN THE UNITED STATES THEY’RE UNHAPPY. THE SAUDIS MAY HAVE FORCED THE PRESIDENT’S HAND BASED ON RAISING OF OIL PRICES. HE MAY DECIDE HE NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING. THIS IS NOT THE END OF THE STORY. CONNELL: OKAY.>>WE’RE IN LAME-DUCK CONGRESS. WE’RE MOVING INTO THE HOLIDAYS. WILL BE A NEW CONGRESS NEXT YEAR. WE’LL HAVE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN SAUDI ARABIA, IF WE SEE SOME SORT OF ACCOUNTABILITY WHICH IS WHAT EVERYBODY IS CALLING FOR OVER THIS HEINOUS CRIME. CONNELL: AS A FINAL POINT, I WONDER WHAT OUR STRATEGIC INTEREST FOR PRICE OF OIL WE’RE LOOKING AT. IT IS 53.11. IT WENT UP A COUPLE BUCKS. FOR CONSUMERS IT IS TRUE WE WANT AS LOW AS POSSIBLE PRICES, I GET THAT, BUT FROM OUR VERY OWN OIL INDUSTRY IMPORTANT FROM A NATIONAL SECURITY AS WELL, YOU NEED THE PRICE AT LEAST ABOVE 50 BUCKS, RIGHT? WE PROBABLY DON’T WANT IT TO GO TOO LOW EITHER?>>I GET YOUR POINT. THAT IS SOMETHING FOR YOU TO DISCUSS. I’M NOT IN OIL OR ENERGY. CONNELL: SPEAKS TO HOW COMPLICATED ISSUE IS.>>IT IS VERY COMPLICATED. TALKING ABOUT WAR POWERS ACT, BERNIE SANDERS WAS. TALKING A MURDER OF A JOURNALIST. THE WAR IN YEMEN WHICH IS TERRIBLE HUMANITARIAN DISASTER.

  1. All this fuss over an al kaeda operative. Tut, tut.

  2. I thought all the cucks resigned?

  3. Of course they did. They are the enemy within.

  4. No mention of the over 24 mexican reporters and reformers already murdered in 2018 by the drug cartels and pelosi's MS-13 angels
    Who cares about kashoggy???

  5. Khashoggi was a political activist passing himself off as a journalist (as Jim Acosta) Granted his his murder was barbaric and heinous but so are the hundreds of Christians, including many teenagers, murdered in Pakistan in recent years. They are beaten, mass raped or sodomized, depending on their gender, then beheaded or hung. They were harboring Osama Ben Laden and still provide safe haven for the Taliban and have training camps set up for Taliban fighters. Where is all the outrage about that? What a bunch of total hypocrites!

  6. Bin Salman is another EL Chiapo but 1000s times stronger.

  7. How about Mexican authority.

  8. Khashoggi was not a journalist he had very limited journalism experience with wapo he was a CIA operative and was not even a citizen of the United States this is all smoke and mirrors. Trump will not fall into this trap.

  9. THE SENATE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN BUSY AND WORKED FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHILE WE HAVE THE POWER INSTEAD OF BEING LIKE TWO FACED COINS AND ALWAYS TURNING ON THE PRESIDENT. REPUBLICANS YOU ALL SUCK. KHASHOGGI WAS NOT MURDERED IN USA OR BY AN AMERICAN. IT IS NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS WHAT HAPPENS IN TURKEY AND THE SAUDI EMBASSY. GET TO WORK FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE YOU LAZY POS.

  10. Congress is owned by foreign governments because WE allow Comgress to TAKE foreign campaign contributions!

  11. Bernie Sanders saving the day with the BIPARTISAN vote against the war in Yemen… this guy is what America needs right now. And you’re going to hate because he’s a liberal. But will make American lives better

  12. Peter Brooks…. Another member of the criminal gang, talking about ' murdered" journalist who happened to be CIA asset and a top weapons/ drags criminal…. Want to puke when watching MSM..interviewing the deep state creatures one after another.

  13. What would the clintons do to Say
    Julian or SNOWDEN

    Heres a big FUCK YOU
    FROM THE TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOTS

    Excelent work and job well done to Saudis ……you have our support.

  14. Rub 2 sticks of shit
    And still elbow deep in shit ……flush the TURDS.

  15. Pompeo is the Saudi's BUTT BOY! LOL. Bend over and grab your ankles Mike! and take it like a man….=P

  16. Explain to me please why we are to alter our national policy on the insistence of the New York Times and Washington Post on behalf of an occasional columnist who was also an islamist being murdered in Turkey? Khashoggi was not a journalist and was an ideological enemy of the US.

  17. Boy, these crooked politicians are quick to deal with foreign affairs, but drag their ass on American affairs…hmm??

  18. obama bombed lybia without congressional approval..just saying

  19. tough,,,,,, tough,,,,,,, tough,,,,, 34🚩🚩🚩

  20. Unlike Mexico, The Saudis send us their best people, they even know how to fly planes (minus the take off and landing parts though)

  21. U guy's didn't care about Bengazi u kept ur mouth shut about our American men.u all protected Killery obooombbooo
    Muslim

  22. Prince "Bone Saw" Bin Salman should rotten in prison but his BFF Trump defend his Cash cow. Trump's morally bankrupt!

  23. I'm tired of Kashoggi. He was a pos SAUDI , supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, who wrote a few misleading / poor taste articles for America. I'm not a fan of Saudi Arabia by any means, but this dude is Not worth all this.

  24. Mbs is a murdererrrrr

  25. Kashoggi was a known sympathiser of radical Islamic groups during the Arab Spring. He also supported those in the Saudi old guard who wanted to keep the oppressive regime imprisoning women in their own homes, not allowing them to vote, to drive, to travel abroad without being accompanied or given permission by a male relative. You know that if a widowed woman wants to travel abroad she would have to ask her own son for permission. How perverted is that? MBS wants to modernise. Kashoggi was an enemy of the new modern state that MBS wants to bring. He was also an agent of the Saudi Secret Service. He was NOT what he is portrayed to be by some people. I don't agree with what happened to him but……..he who lives by the sword………. You know the rest.

  26. If put to a vote I'd wager that an overwhelming majority of Americans don't want anything done about Khashoggi's death. Not a citizen. Not our responsibility! The man died as he lived, violently!
    Another ploy by Liberal Democrats and their MSM puppets to put our President in a bad situation and distract the sheeple!

  27. Sure aren’t talkin too much about the quality of the stock market too much are ya

  28. Justice should happen…. Jamal Kasshogi soul will rest in peace.

  29. Global responsibility
    ………..
    The breakthrough of diplomacy
    It costs the regime
    * In the case of absolute monarchy and bloody crime in the consulate + etc
    The international community and the seven Member States are entitled
    Demanding a regime change diplomatically
    To create a civil constitution guaranteeing human freedom: civil liberty
    According to UN agreements, UN institutes and human rights associations. With the same signature
    – Covering the crime is considered a complication: international law
    – A strong lesson for the rest of the reckless countries
    ………
    The United States is in response to civil rights and the international community remains united until justice and law are achieved
    ………
    God bless America
    ,,,,,,,,,,
    Thanks

  30. The ugly face of Khashoggi

      He was Osama bin Laden's favorite friend and the biggest supporter of the Taliban, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, al Shabaab in Somalia and all terrorist organizations.

    And Prince Mohammed bin Salman will not stop him anything, from fighting terrorism and uprooting its origins at any price and whatever the scream

  31. Kashoggi soul Will rest in peace..
    I am already hate too much to watch Saudi kingdom Dramas
