After CIA briefing, Republicans say 'no question' Saudi crown prince ordered Khashoggi murder

Following a briefing by CIA director Gina Haspel Tuesday on the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, leading Republican senators told reporters that there was "zero question" that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the brutal murder.

 

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, said "I have zero question in my mind that the Crown Prince MBS ordered the killing, monitored the killing, knew exactly what was happening. Planned it in advance. If he was in front of a jury he would be convicted in 30 minutes. Guilty," Corker said.

Corker called the Trump administration's claim that there is no direct evidence of the crown prince's involvement "unacceptable."

 

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said, "There's not a smoking gun, there's a smoking saw."

"You have to be willfully blind not to come to the conclusion that this was orchestrated and organized by people under the command of MBS and that he was intricately involved in the demise of Mr. Khashoggi," he said.

He went on: "If the Saudi government is going to be in the hands of this man, I find it very difficult to be able to do business because I think he's crazy, I think he's dangerous, and he has put the relationship at risk."

Graham concluded that he can no longer support arms sales to the kingdom.

Given those comments, it appeared Haspel's briefing would not help the administration win back support for its military aid to the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen.

The fact that the briefing was limited to a small group angered several senators, including Republican allies of President Trump.

If they have proof they should come out with it. It seems like common sense that he was involved but proof is still needed.

We should label him and enemy to the American crown and send out a search party to deliver the king’s justice.

I'm still not sure why Trump is covering for the Saudis. Does he have property there? Or trying to have property there?

Trump basically defended them and joined in on their cover up excuse

That's why people are critical of Trump on this one.

This plus his pretty significant conflict of interest when it comes to SA

Well, in all honesty, people were pretty critical of "orange man" because he towed the Saudi cover up excuse and really has avoided any sort of condemnation towards them, in contrast to members of his own party and about every other significant world leader that has spoken about it.

Be honest for once....you would shit on him no matter how he responded.

Your mind was made up....he’s guilty of something because they own something in a hotel with Trump’s name on it.
