The CIA has conclusive evidence that Mohammed bin Salman did, in fact, order the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. This is, of course, of interest only if you ever had any doubt.

According to the New York Times, “The C.I.A. has evidence that Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince, communicated repeatedly with a key aide around the time that a team believed to have been under the aide’s command assassinated Jamal Khashoggi, according to former officials familiar with the intelligence.

But, of course…or curse…there’s the rub. Trump has already said he doesn’t believe the CIA. And he is suspected of being seriously in debt to the Saudis. Meaning that Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) could show up at the White House with blood on his hands…

And no one would care.
