Argentina judge acts on complaint against Saudi prince

The 63-to-37 vote came after a contentious administration briefing on the war, a discussion that also addressed Saudi involvement in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, NBC News reported. USA intelligence agencies have concluded that the Saudi crown prince must have at least known about a plot.

Pompeo also urged senators to vote against the Yemen resolution, claiming the timing is bad because they are "on the cusp" of all parties coming to the table for a potential cease-fire.

Corker said in the past he has "laid in the railroad tracks to keep us from doing things that I believe are against our national interest as it relates to Saudi Arabia".

But Senators Bernie Sanders and Chris Murphy and Mike Lee continued their work on Wednesday to get the 51 votes needed to introduce the resolution.

Still, as the driving force behind Saudi Arabia's military involvement in Yemen, MBS has been under heightened scrutiny.

Pompeo told reporters after the briefing that there was no direct evidence connecting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to Khashoggi's murder.

The prince known in the west as (MBS) also discussed with Mr. Modi Saudi oil giant Aramco's investment in refineries in India, including the company's project to build a large refinery on the western coast of India, SPA said. The administration "did not win any votes", he said, and there was a lot of frustration that CIA Director Gina Haspel did not attend.

People hold signs during a protest at the Embassy of Saudi Arabia about the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, in Washington.

And Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican who is often strongly allied with Trump, voted to move forward with the resolution and said he would insist on a briefing from Haspel.

In a statement, CIA Press Secretary Timothy Barrett said that no one kept Haspel away from the briefing. He said the CIA had already briefed the Senate intelligence committee and Senate leaders and "will continue to provide updates on this important matter to policymakers and Congress".

"This case is not closed", she said.

Pompeo says US involvement in the conflict is central to the Trump administration's broader goal of containing Iranian influence in the Middle East.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says US involvement in the Yemen conflict is central to American security interests.

He then went on the offensive, asking if "is it any coincidence that the people using the Khashoggi murder as a cudgel against President Trump's Saudi Arabia policy are the same people who supported Barack Obama's rapprochement with Iran - a regime that has killed thousands worldwide, including hundreds of Americans, and brutalises its own people?" Riyadh said last month that it had.
