quote:
“If they were in a Democratic administration,” Graham said of Pompeo and Mattis, “I would be all over them for being in the pocket of Saudi Arabia.”

Corker was about as full-throated, saying, “If the crown prince went in front of a jury, he would be convicted in 30 minutes” — another clear rebuke to Trump’s statement and Pompeo’s and Mattis’s suggestions that this is some kind of unknown.

Corker also suggested that the briefing last week, which featured Pompeo and Mattis but not Haspel, was entirely misleading. When asked whether there was a difference in the message about Mohammed’s culpability, Corker compared it to the “difference between darkness and sunshine.”

OK. So what are they going to do about it? Just make statements of outrage, and then it’s business as usual?

And there are different rules for democrats and republicans?

SMH.

Republican Party identification has begun requiring intellectual vacuity.

Yes, that's exactly what they'll do. Bloviate and pontificate to sound moderate and sensible, and then do absolutely nothing to their party's very intelligent leader.

I read somewhere that Graham says he'll no longer support the current war in Yemen. That could be more concrete than tsking.

I will wait to see if he proposes a binding Senate action in a sober and bipartisan way. I'm not holding my breath. I suspect he'll offer a "sense of the Senate" resolution and slink off to do some more bootlicking.

What we have here is a sternly worded memo.

They're trying to get something more than a strongly worded memo.

Next up: the VERY sternly worded memo.

(I don’t think anything will come of this. Please let me be wrong. )
