Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Not to come to the inclusion that this was orchestrated and organized by people in under the command of NBS, and that he was intricately involved in the demise of Mr. kashogi on Thursday. The house approved a Senate Bill to end US assistance of the Saudi led war in Yemen. It's a rebuke of President Trump's foreign policy related to Saudi Arabia. President Trump consider Saudi Arabia to be a key Middle East ally. The Saudis have been a reliable buyer of US weapons for things like the war in Yemen. And like we said NBS and the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner are kind of BFF's just in February Kushner went to Saudi Arabia to persuade NBS to sign onto his Middle East peace plan. And according to recent reports, the Trump administration recently and secretly authorized companies to sell nuclear power technology and support to Saudi Arabia. Members of congress are worried that this could lead to a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, which would make Saudi Arabia, even more powerful. So what's the scam on a global level? The international community has been pretty pissed about all of this last month. Thirty six countries on the UN Human Rights Council. Voted to rebuke Saudi Arabia over the treatment of those women activists and to demand. They're released in the US congress Baring its teeth by saying we're done. That's why this vote yesterday was such a big deal. It's the latest example of how a bipartisan majority of US lawmakers aren't interested in helping Saudi Arabia anymore because of human rights abuses, because of things like the murder of kashogi, President Trump has to decide whether he will agree to back away from MB S or whether he'll shrug his shoulders at congress and veto. They're both. It would be the second veto of his entire presidency. In the meantime, one of the world's most famous asylum-seekers is maybe about to get a victim. And he's got bigger worries than getting his deposit back that stories next. So clearly there's a lot going on in the world. You know, what else is going on taxes? Yup. Tax season is in full swing. But f y it's not a season that you can just write off agent.
