The Biden administration's decision to shield Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from U.S.-based lawsuits was backed by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark, on Fox News Sunday.
Cotton's comments come after the State Department on Thursday said the administration's determination the Saudi leader had sovereign immunity from U.S. courts in Khashoggi’s killing is a "purely a legal determination" with long-standing legal precedent.

The Arkansas senator agreed, saying it "would have been a major break from those customs to not grant that kind of immunity."
