WATCH: Fox’s Judge Napolitano Blasts Senate For ‘Utterly Toothless’ Response to Khashoggi Murder

The Senate, on Thursday, passed a non-binding resolution by voice vote condemning Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the murder of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi. They also, by a 56-41 tally, passed a measure requiring the U.S. to end military support for the war in Yemen — which is led by the Saudis. Those actions, though, don’t go nearly far enough for Judge Andrew Napolitano’s liking.

Appearing on Special Report with Bret Baier Thursday night, Napolitano ripped the Senate for votes which he feels will have absolutely no impact.

“I believe that these resolutions were utterly toothless,” Napolitano said. “And that the true heinous act, as horrific as the slaughter of Khashoggi was, the true heinous act is the use of American troops as advisors, and American weaponry in Yemen to kill massive numbers of innocents, and bring about massive starvation. And I wish that instead of ‘this is the sense of the Senate,’ it had actually been legislation that restrained the president from putting troops there, and restrained American arms dealers from getting their equipment there. But it didn’t get to that extent.”
