The Wall Street Journal: In rebuke to Trump, Senate votes to consider ending U.S. involvement in Yemen war

WASHINGTON — The Senate voted Wednesday to begin considering a resolution to withdraw U.S. support for Saudi forces in Yemen, defying top administration officials who just hours earlier had come to Capitol Hill to lobby lawmakers to do the opposite.

The 63-37 vote marked a rebuke of the White House as senators vented their frustration over President Donald Trump’s reluctance to hold Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman responsible for the early October killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents in the country’s consulate in Istanbul.

“The fact that we haven’t forced [the crown prince] to come clean is creating a problem,” said Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn.
