Saudi Arabia turns to Democrat-tied lobbyists
for Capitol Hill relationship advice

Aaron Schaffer | February 10, 2020 (less than fiddy)

The Williams Group is the 10th firm hired by Saudi Arabia’s embassy
in Washington and the ministry of foreign affairs.

Saudi Arabia has turned to a pair of former Democratic aides to help repair relations with Capitol Hill.
The contract comes as Saudi Arabia continues to suffer blowback on Capitol Hill
for its bombing campaign in Yemen and the murder of dissident
Jamal Khashoggi, particularly from Democrats.
Riyadh spends tens of millions of dollars per year on about 100 foreign agents,
including a roster of Republican bigwigs but not a single former Democratic lawmaker.

“It makes perfect sense for them to diversify their support base, given the
extremely strong opposition to them from Congress,” said Sarah Leah Whitson,
managing director for research and policy at the dovish Quincy Institute.
“I think they may be recognizing that they just need to invest some more
into maintaining what has been, historically, a willingness
of the United States to look the other way.”
