Crown Prince Salman ordered Khashoggi’s murder: US Senators

Two key US Republican senators said they have “zero” doubt Saudi Arabia’s crown prince directed the murder of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The Senators came to the emphatic conclusion after they were briefed by the CIA director Tuesday.

The explosive new declarations by members of President Donald Trump’s party run counter to the White House narrative downplaying possible links between Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the October killing of journalist and palace critic Khashoggi at the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate.

“I have zero question in my mind that the crown prince directed the murder and was kept appraised of the situation all the way through it,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker told reporters after CIA director Gina Haspel briefed a small group of senators.

“If MBS were in front of a jury he’d be convicted in less than 30 minutes.”

Fellow Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who has urged Trump to take a far tougher stance against Riyadh over the killing, also attended the hour-long briefing.

He minced no words afterwards, saying he believes Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is “a wrecking ball” who is “complicit in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi to the highest level possible.”

“There’s not a smoking gun but a smoking saw,” Graham added.

After reports that the CIA concluded that the crown prince ordered Khashoggi’s assassination in the Istanbul consulate on October 2, Trump issued a statement saying US-Saudi relations and oil market stability were too important to rock over the scandal.

Last week, under mounting pressure from lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle who wanted action against Riyadh, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Pentagon chief Jim Mattis held a closed-door all-senators briefing where they said there was no direct evidence linking the crown prince to the murder.

On Tuesday Graham swatted their assessment aside.

“You have to be wilfully blind not to come to the conclusion that this was orchestrated and organised by people under command of MBS, and that he was intricately involved in the demise of Mr. Khashoggi.”

What distinguishes the United States from any other country in the world is the systemically resolute system of accountability in place. It does not leave that important job to one office.
There are MANY agencies (both governmental and non-governmental) in the US that will eventually get Mohammed bin Salman and bring him to justice. It may take time, but it will happen. No doubt about that.

BTW this finding is coming from a Republican Senator. Now, imagine what the Democrats will do after they take over the House of Reps in January.

Do they have enough evidences to back up their claims?
