Gina Haspel Set to Brief House Leaders on Khashoggi Death

The head of the CIA is  set to brief House leaders  Wednesday on what the agency knows about the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.  CIA Director Gina Haspel  briefed top senators  on the same issue last week.

After that meeting, a  bipartisan group of senators  introduced a resolution that held Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman accountable for Khashoggi's death, among other things.  The Senate has also moved to  end U.S. military support  for the Saudi-led coalition fighting in the war in Yemen.

The resolution still needs to pass another round of votes in the upper chamber before it can head to debate.

If it passes, it will go on to the House, though analysts say it's unlikely to pass there.  President Donald Trump has repeatedly stood behind U.S.-ally Saudi Arabia,  disputing reported conclusions  from intelligence agencies that the crown prince was involved in the killing of Khashoggi.

On Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis will reportedly brief the House on Khashoggi's death and the Saudi-led war in Yemen.  Pompeo has previously said there's no "direct evidence" connecting Crown Prince Mohammed to the journalist's death.
