Senate (Voice Vote) Agrees to S.J Res 69

In the midst of voting on the final iteration of the legally binding S.J Res 54, Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) submitted a different non-legally binding resolution ascribing blame to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman for a variety of perceived regional missteps. The resolution is very similar to one introduced just days ago by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and among other faults blames the young Prince for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi and atrocities in the Yemen War.

Despite supporting procedural votes to allow debate on S.J Res 54, Corker ultimately opposed the law, arguing that this non-binding resolution is a more diplomatic way to go about censuring the Saudi Government
