The top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee joined Democrats Saturday in criticizing President Trumps failure to send a report to Congress on the murder of Saudi Arabian dissident and journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas said he is deeply troubled by the administrations failure to meet the deadline on Friday for submitting a report on the slaying that is linked to the Saudi royal family.
The White House said in a statement that Congress cant force the president to act.
Consistent with the previous administrations position and the constitutional separation of powers, the president maintains his discretion to decline to act on congressional committee requests when appropriate, the administration said, adding that the U.S. already has taken action against the killers.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sent a letter to Congress outlining actions taken by the U.S. against individuals believed to be involved in the killing, but stopped short of describing who was ultimately responsible.

What is it about Khashoggi that has the panties of all the Fools on The Hill in a bunch?
RINO McCaul had best let POTUS and the executive branch handle the murder of a Muslim Brotherhood member and sympathizer in a foreign country.
Agreed. I’m surprised at McCaul. I didn’t know he was part of the RINO squad..........my Dear Lord, we need new blood up there on Crapitol Hill.....
Those guys and gals (GOP) in congress have enough on their plates to keep this country from becoming MEXICO without worrying about what the Sunnis want us to do about what their radical terrorist friends in the ME want us to do about their killing for them!
Uh, horrific but not really our business. Let the u.n. human rights council take care of it. ( I wrote that wit a straight face.)
Shut thr f*ck up McCaul you useless bag of wind.
Where were you when OUR Democrat presidents were ordering the murder of American citizens?
I don’t know but it’s ridiculous, the world is undoubtedly a better place with Khashoggi gone.
A$$hole McCaul should ask Brennan about the details of the Al Qaeda sympathizer ‘s offing.
Jamal Khashoggi was a mouthpiece for and defacto member of the terrorist organization The Muslim Brotherhood. So, the Saudis killed a known terrorist and enemy. Why the hell would anyone other than terrorist sympathizers give a rats ass about this?
It would be nice if these virtue-signaling rat bastards spent more time blasting Democrat-Socialists.
Khashoggi had to die before anyone even heard of him.
Exactly, you said it better than I.
Lets wrap this Freepathon up, Folks!
Im deeply troubled by this turds inability to realize that this incident was not any of our business. Saudi Arabia is a sovereign nation that does whatever based on its own policies...not ours. Perhaps the deluded Congress critter should be more deeply troubled by the indiscriminate killings of babies in his (our) own country instead of what happens in sovereign nations. what a blowhard
Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas Publicly Outs Himself As Supporter of The Enemy of The United States of America.
Does make one wonder...
