The recent disappearance and likely assassination of Jamal Khashoggi only underscores how urgent it has become for the United States to redefine our relationship with Saudi Arabia and end our support for the war in Yemen.

The idea that political donors expect a specific policy result in exchange for their contribution is the very definition of corruption—and my Republican colleagues have no problem admitting that's what they're doing.
Why does Trump love dictators so much? The president makes it more and more clear with every authoritarian he meets that he not only admires them but wants to follow their lead.
