Washington (CNN) A leading Republican senator said Thursday that he believes Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered and that "there is no question the Saudis did this." "I would think that if it were Saudi Arabia and he was alive, with all that's happening right now, they would produce him." "They need to account, Saudi Arabia does, for what happened in the consulate," Graham said. Senators have tried to limit arms sales to Saudi Arabia in the past because of the civilian deaths in Yemen. The US signed a nearly $110 billion defense deal with Saudi Arabia in May 2017, when Trump made Saudi Arabia a stop on his first foreign trip as President.
