Lindsey Graham Ready to Hold Senate Hostage Over Khashoggi Briefing

Saudi Arabia’s stifling grip on the world oil markets has been a fantastic deterrent against criticism for the Crown Prince as of late, even as Khashoggi’s killing looms large in the rearview mirror.

While the President has all but brushed off the ongoing drama surrounding the death of anti-Saudi journalist Jamal Kashoggi, it seems that not everyone in the republican party is falling in step with him.

Khashoggi’s killing was a gruesome and grotesque affair, complete with dismemberment, torture, and a disturbing disposal process.  It was no clean hit, instead, it was meant to send a message from the Saudi Royal Family to those who would choose to oppose them.

Our CIA even went so far as to claim that the Saudi Crown Prince himself personally ordered the assassination.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., threatened to withhold his vote on a spending bill if the CIA fails to brief Congress on the murder of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi.

Speaking to reporters, Graham indicated that the briefing lawmakers had just received by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was insufficient without the CIA present.

“If that briefing is not given soon, it’s going to be hard for me to vote on any spending bill,” Graham said.

The look of disappointment was unmistakeable.

President Trump Calls On United Nations To Hold China Accountable For Causing Pandemic

President Trump has come out and called upon the United Nations to step up to the plate and hold China accountable for causing the coronavirus pandemic that has swept across the globe, killing hundreds of thousands of people and almost leading to economic collapse for America and many other nations across the world. The president made his confrontational speech to the United Nations General Assembly in a recorded address a day earlier at the White House. The tone of his talk made it absolutely clear he’s not at all happy with China, the nation where this mess originated from. via Washington Examiner: His speech contained a list of accusations against Beijing, from allowing travelers to spread what he called the “China virus” around the world to polluting the oceans. “The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump said, calling on the U.N. to hold Beijing to account. “Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” he said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions. China absolutely should be held accountable for causing this mess. There are a lot of theories out there that suggest this virus was created and purposefully leaked into the world. We don’t know if that’s true, but even if it isn’t and the whole thing was an accident, the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for all of the horrific loss of life and economic damage this has caused. As such, they need to step up to the plate and make this right. They need to take responsibility for their actions and their blatant failures to get the spread of this illness under control.
