Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said Wednesday that he would not support a new government-funding bill or the confirmation of Republican judicial nominees until the CIA is allowed to brief lawmakers on the assassination of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. If that briefing is not given soon, it’s gonna be hard for me to vote for any spending bill,” Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defense James Mattis gave Congress a classified briefing on Khashoggi’s assassination at the hands of Saudi agents Wednesday morning, but CIA director Gina Haspel was not present.
