Transcript for Lawmakers demand answers on Saudi role in journalist's murder
Now, George, to the outrage that is growing over the killing of that "Washington post" writer. Top trump officials now say there is no direct evidence that the Saudi crown prince was behind it but senators on both sides of the aisle are raising concerns and Mary Bruce has more. Good morning. Reporter: Good morning, Michael. Well, there is real growing pushback on the hill. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are simply fed up and now they're threatening to take action. Even one of the top ally, Lindsey graham, says he's willing T hold up key votes including one to fund the government in order to get answers. They are not going to let this issue go and now they are threatening to move forward with a bill that could end U.S. Support for the Saudi war in Yemen, a clear sign they are willing to punish Saudi Arabia. Lawmakers here, again, both sides of the aisle, want answers and want to know whether the crown prince was involved and want to know about Saudi Arabia's broader role in the murder of Jamal khashoggi. They're demanding to hear directly from the CIA director who was notably absent from a briefing here on the hill yesterday and want to question her directly about the agency's assessment that the crown prince did orchestrate this murder despite the fact that the president, robin and Michael, says there was no clear link between the two. Mary, thank you.
