Secondly, Congress could impose sanctions against the MBS and other members of the Saudi government who are implicated in the murder of Khashoggi, though the Treasury Department (operating under the president's authority) would actually implement and execute any such sanctions, he added.

After the hearing, Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters that there is zero chance the crown prince wasn't involved.
Haspel delivered a closed-door briefing on the Khashoggi murder to Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Foreign Relations, Armed Services and Appropriations committees on Tuesday morning.

Despite these heavy suspicions, the administration of President Donald Trump has sought to distance the Saudi leadership from the affair and insisted there is no direct proof Prince Mohammed ordered the killing.
Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said after the briefing that somebody should be punished. About his disappearance became known after he, along with the bride called for the building of the Consulate of Saudi Arabia. "MBS, the crown prince, is a wrecking ball".
