The Saudis are preparing a report that will acknowledge Jamal Khashoggi’s death was the result of an interrogation that went wrong — one that was intended to lead to his abduction from Turkey, according to two sources.
One source says the report will likely conclude that the operation was carried out without clearance and transparency and that those involved will be held responsible.
One of the sources acknowledged that the report is still being prepared and cautioned that things could change.
If this is the cover story, one can only imagine what the truth is (I would prefer not to).
Speaking of people who should be subjected to enhanced interrogation:
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman allegedly bragged to the Emirati crown prince and others that U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was “in his pocket,” according to a report in The Intercept.
The Intercept reported that after Kushner’s unannounced trip to Riyadh in October, in which they reportedly stayed up until 4 A.M. planning strategy, the “Crown Prince Mohammed told confidants that Kushner had discussed the names of Saudis disloyal to the crown prince, according to three sources who have been in contact with members of the Saudi and Emirati royal families since the crackdown.” Kushner, through his attorney’s spokesperson, denies having done so.
A week following Kushner’s secret trip to Saudi Arabia, as part of Trump’s special envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, the crown prince launched the “Saudi Purge” against the kingdom’s political and business elite under the guise of anti-corruption efforts. . .
Senior U.S. government officials have raised concerns that foreign officials might try to influence Kushner through business deals with his family’s real estate empire.
According to ABC News, Qatari officials have evidence of “illicit influence” by the UAE on Kushner. However, the report added that the UAE has decided not to give the information to special counsel Robert Mueller.
Kusher has already been questioned by Mueller’s team as part of his Russia collusion probe.
Kushner has a close relationship with the Saudi and Emirati crown princes. “Kushner has communicated with them directly using WhatsApp, according to a senior Western official and a source close to the Saudi royal family,” The Intercept added.
Trump and everyone close to him are the scum of the earth. If you assume the absolute worst about these people you will never be far wrong.
