The ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday claimed that the State Department is attempting to strike another multi-million dollar arms deal with Saudi Arabia.
The development comes in the wake of the May 15 firing of State Department Inspector General Steve Linick, who was allegedly conducting a review of Mr. Trump’s emergency declaration to push a controversial weapons deal with Saudi Arabia last year — which Democrats have suggested could be linked to the sudden ouster.
“The administration is currently trying to sell thousands more precision-guided bombs to the President’s ‘friend,’ Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman,” Sen. Bob Menendez, New Jersey Democrat, wrote in a CNN op-ed Wednesday.

“The American people have the right to know that while the Trump administration cannot seem to be bothered to build a political coalition to combat the biggest pandemic in a century, they recently managed to find a way to double down on President Donald Trump’s repulsive embrace of Saudi Arabia’s murderous regime,” he wrote.
