GOP Senator: US Should 'Reevaluate' Long-Term Relationship with Saudis

Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said Thursday the U.S. needs to “reevaluate” its relationship with Saudi Arabia as the kingdom faces bipartisan scrutiny over its involvement in the killing of a journalist and the civil war in Yemen.

“We need to really reevaluate our long-term relationship with Saudi Arabia. We have a strategic interest in terms of working closely with them, but they are in complete violation, and specifically the crown prince, of our American values,” Barrasso, who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said on CNN.



The Wyoming Republican added that he would co-sponsor a bill introduced Wednesday by Sen. Jim Risch (R-Idaho), the chairman of the Foreign Relations panel, that would force the Trump administration to undergo a "comprehensive review" of the U.S.-Saudi relationship.

The relationship between Washington and Riyadh has come under increased scrutiny in recent months after the October murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. The intelligence community says Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was behind the killing, which was reportedly ordered as part of his crackdown on dissent.
