The Senate voted 63-37 to pass the procedural vote, which will set up a floor debate on the resolution next week.

The U.S. -backed, Saudi-led military intervention was under way, and parts of Yemen were under siege by the Houthi rebels when Safa Al Ahmad traveled back to the country in 2016 to see the human toll of the war.

"Lawmakers in the appropriate committee should be able to get access to all of that", Rogers said, agreeing with host Alisyn Camerota that the administration didn't "want to hear all the evidence" out of misplaced loyalty to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The Canadian measures contain no mention of the Crown Prince, however.

Worldwide pressure has mounted on Riyadh to find those responsible for the grisly murder of Khashoggi, a U.S. resident who wrote for The Washington Post and had been critical of Prince Mohammed. "This is not an ally that deserves our support or military intervention on its behalf, especially when our own security is not itself on the line".

But he also said that the killing of Khashoggi would be discussed in the meeting. "I think 80 percent of the people left the hearing this morning not feeling like an appropriate response has been forthcoming", Corker said. At least 21 school boys under the age of 15 were among those killed, according to the UN.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis urged senators at a closed-door briefing today to stay the course on USA support for the Saudi-led military coalition fighting in Yemen.

Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon on Tuesday that he had read all the USA intelligence reports about the incident and that there was no information that proves the crown prince was involved.

"And of course Saudi Arabia is absolutely crucial for that goal, and I'm ready to discuss it with the crown prince or with any other Saudi officials because I believe it is a very important objective at the present moment", Guterres said. "I do not have a smoking gun, but what I do know is that he was in charge of this agency that carried out the killing".

Yemen, already the region's poorest nation before the outbreak of war, was in a full-blown humanitarian crisis.

Lawmakers in Washington voted on Wednesday to advance a resolution to end U.S. support for a Saudi-led war in Yemen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., would end US involvement and military assistance to the war where more 85,000 children have died because of a war-induced famine in the country and millions of people on the brink of starvation, which UNICEF declared the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. "They would also like to know about the effects of the humanitarian crisis and whether United States military involvement has played a role in worsening that", Otis said.

Pompeo argued that the war in Yemen would be "a hell of a lot worse" if the United States were not involved.

The US provides intelligence support to the coalition and sells weapons used by the Saudis in Yemen.

Even the president's close ally Sen.

The crown prince was received by President Beji Caid Essebsi, who awarded him the republic's medal, the highest official award. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) have proposed, and it does not end all USA millitary operations in Yemen.
