After CIA Briefing, Republicans Say 'No Question' Saudi Crown Prince Ordered Khashoggi Murder


By MARIAM KHAN, CONOR FINNEGAN TRISH TURNER Dec 4, 2018, 4:08 PM ET


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.

1. Muslims kill other Muslims all the time.

This is not a diplomatic crisis for the US.

This dude was a foreign national......not a US citizen.]

6. What I want to know is this:

Why is the world making such a fuss over this tempest in a teaspoon?

Khashoggi was a member of the Muslim brother hood, did not have a US green card, and was only a part time reporter? Any murder is bad, but what is behind all this roaring so many are doing??

8. Exactly

But hey, it's Trump.

There is no news here. nation murders it's own citizen film at 11.

If we had to break diplomatic relations with every country, we would have no diplomatic relations.

Obama even murdered US citizen children.
