President Trump said that the CIA did not come to a conclusion that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman directed the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Axios reports.
Washington Post: “Trump brushed aside the intelligence community’s assessment that the crown prince had ordered the killing and reiterated that Saudi Arabia was too valuable an ally to lose over the incident.”
Said Trump: “I hate the crime… I hate the coverup. I will tell you this: The crown prince hates it more than I do.”
Of course, the CIA did come to a conclusion, saying they believe with “high confidence” that MBS was behind the killing.Save to Favorites
