^ Says based on CIA report, prince would be convicted in 30 minutes if he went on trial.

Any comments from senators on Trumps non-reaction? And apparent attempts to hide this report. Surely Trump already had privy to this same info the senators received.

I believe the plan is to trot out Flake for some righteous indignation and hand-wringing and then move on to more important things like AOC's wardrobe.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/global-opinions/the-khashoggi-killing-had-roots-in-a-cutthroat-saudi-family-feud/2018/11/27/6d79880c-f17b-11e8-bc79-68604ed88993_story.html?utm_term=.1402b70afc72

David Ignatius writes spy thrillers. This Saudi situation seems like it's out of his fictional accounts.

A lot to follow, but the gist: when former king passed in 2015, a power struggle amongst the Saudi family commenced. MBS started consolidating power. And rooting out dissidents and opposition. It appears USA, via Kushner took the MBS side in this internal struggle. A week after Kushner visited MBS in 6/2017, MBS started rounding up political foes. Seems he has been emboldened by this all, started doing more of it, eventually to Khashoggi level.

USA and most nations with advanced intelligence operations had to know much of this was going on. MBS was acting with impunity, with no concern for opposition.

Kushner should be grilled for his role in this and Trump business ties relative to MBS should be fully exposed. Of course the USA has our own royal family and ruling party controlling this.
