Six US Senators have introduced a bipartisan resolution seeking to hold Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman accountable for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Senator Christopher Coons said in a press release on Thursday.
"We have three different efforts underway, all of which have a lot of momentum", Corker (Republican from Tennessee), said after meeting with other senators to negotiate on Thursday.
Erdogan has said that the order for Khashoggi's killing probably did not come from Saudi Arabian King Salman, putting the spotlight instead on the crown prince.
Istanbul's top prosecutor issued arrest warrants for two close allies of Saudi Arabia's crown prince on Wednesday, in connection with the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Moreover, the resolution criticises the crown prince's domestic policies, accusing him of frequently disregarding the rights of Saudi citizens "in an effort to consolidate his personal control over Saudi government decision-making".
"I believe it's vitally important to US national security interests to make a definitive statement about the brutal murder of an American resident, Mr. Khashoggi, who has three American citizen children", Graham said in a statement.

As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Murphy said. The opening play of the fourth quarter was a flawless example of Green Bay's offensive struggles. "Like I said, it's tough".
The men were sacked after the kingdom admitted Mr Khashoggi, a staunch critic of the Saudi government, was killed at its consulate in Istanbul. President Donald Trump has said responsibility for Khashoggi's death remains an open question and that terminating arms sales to Saudi Arabia would harm the US economy.
Saudi officials have denied any involvement in the death of the journalist.
Corker said he is negotiating with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, (Republican from Kentucky), to move that resolution or one that is similar.
"The reason they don't draw the conclusion that he's complicit is because the administration doesn't want to go down that road, not because there's not evidence to suggest he's complicit", Graham said.
A sizable number of senators on both sides of the aisle have rejected the administration's handling of the Khashoggi killing.
After hearing from her on Tuesday, key senators said that they were convinced that bin Salman ordered Khashoggi's killing in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul. The president has said he is not certain that MBS killed Khashoggi, and his secretaries of Defense and State told reporters last week that there is no definitive proof the Saudi crown prince is to blame. If he were in front of a jury, "he would have a unanimous verdict in about 30 minutes". These types of activities, the report says, are aligned with MIT's objective, outlined in the 2017 report "A Global Strategy for MIT", of working with worldwide collaborators to solve the 21st century's most challenging problems. "I just don't know what it is going to be or who will be implicated, but we will follow it as far as we can".
